Name of Device: HT-1490 Type “A” Instantaneous Safety
The system below is sanctioned by the entire state of California, including Los Angeles County which has the toughest regulations in the U.S., as an approved residential tram system.
This system features: - Dual pulling cables rated over 18,000 lbs of safety each. - The HT-1490 Class "A" Instantaneous Safety. (CA approval No.4778) - In car controls with emergency stop button. - Interlock gate locks for the car and landing gates to ensure safety even for small children. - Lexan sheeting on the car to allow good visibility while still keeping children and passengers hands inside the car. - Dual limit switches at the top and bottom of the tramway which gives a backup system for stopping. - A mechanical over speed governor approved in California. - A bumper at the bottom.
This system certainly has all of the things necessary to keep you and your family safe.
The project above was the first completed in Los Angeles city in over 30 yrs, and it was one that we literally had to help write and re-write new elevator code in order to get a tram project through their building department. Thanks to our persistence and the hard work of our engineers we have successfully passed inspection by the L.A. elevator inspector and this system is now sanctioned for use in the entire state of California.
This is an Accumar cable tram. This system meets all requirements for a cable car tram in the state of California and prefers a steep hill. This system may also be used to span short dips or valleys on a hill which would otherwise be to tall to stand legs for a track system.
