Springs are used in lifts’ operating safety mechanisms.

Lift designs feature several types of springs. The most widespread is the lift cabin vibration damping spring, which is supposed to have highly stable load bearing characteristics and be subjected to repeated stresses without failure. Testing and many years service of the lifts, equipped with nanostructured springs, showed that the springs completely satisfy the requirements stated.

Due to high relaxation resistance nanostructured springs can withstand without failure and camber repeated load impacts, which take place in case of lift cabin fall.
