GUIDE RAILS

traction

Guide rails are part of the inner workings of most elevator and lift shafts, functioning as the vertical, internal track. In the referenced graphic from "How Elevators Work", the guide rails (labeled 5) are fixed to two sides of the shaft; one guides the elevator car and the other for the counterweight. In tandem, these rails operate both as stabilization within the shaft during routine use and as a safety system in case of emergency stops
