Engine bearing

Control noise and vibration NVH produced by the elevator’s engine with Cellasto®. Cellasto offers outstanding vibration isolation and long-term durability.



Cabin isolator

Reduces the vibration of the pulley beams by decoupling the passenger cabin from the elevator’s hoisting mechanisms.



Rail isolator

Avoid the transmission of operational vibration into the building structure with Cellasto® rail isolators. Design a custom solution to fit your guide rail fixing method.


Rope buffer

Control acceleration peaks with Cellasto® rope buffers at cabin and counterweight during starting and stopping movements.
