If the traction sheave cannot be removed…what is the solution?

As the sheave is situated within the drum of the drive alongside the permanent magnets it cannot be replaced. To prevent the need of this ever occurring, the sheave is made of stronger that normal steel (HB260-300) meaning that the sheave will last a lot longer. Also, the manufacturer has also increased the amount of grooves so that if this were ever to wear, the ropes could be moved into different grooves which consequently doubles the usable life of the drive.

What is the best option for the motor-variable frequency drive?

At GLE we supply all of our gearless drives with Vacon variable frequency drives.

We recommend the use of these drives with the Diana gearless traction range as we believe to have found the perfect combination.

Our technical support team is available if you require more information regarding the pairing of a Diana motor with another type of variable frequency drive.

Is a GLE home lifts lift noisy?

Our home lifts are extremely quiet. Its special hydraulic system means that you can use the lift with minimal disturbance to others in the house. In fact, it is quieter than some stairlifts.

Can I have / fit a GLE HOMELIFT?

One of the best things about a GLE HOMELIFT homelift is how versatile it is. Its unique design allows it to be installed in many more places than a regular elevator or stairlift. Wherever you want to place the lift, there’s a good chance it will fit there.

Don’t homelifts require major structural intrusions?

Because homelifts barely take up more space than the lift itself only minor intrusions are necessary. Well, we do need to make a hole between floors! But no holes or shafts are required in the ground floor beneath the lift, and no extra space is required above or beside the lift for a large machinery space as with conventional lifts. It usually only takes 6-8 days for our certified installers to install your homelift. During this time they assemble the self-supporting shaft, install the lift, connect power and emergency telephone and perform a safety inspection so that you can begin using your lift immediately.
