Unique technology Top safety, engineering and economy
The Funifor provides exceptional performance in challenging regions – even at high altitudes, this patented Doppelmayr/Garaventa ropeway system is able to cope with severe weather conditions thanks to its wide rope gauge. Running on two track ropes, the reversible movement Funifor effortlessly carries 60 passengers in each cabin from A to B. One of the special features of this system is the double configuration of the haul rope which consists of a single spliced rope loop. In each station the rope is deflected around two vertical bull wheels: two in the drive station at the base and two in the return station at the top. The cabin carriage is equipped with four horizontal compensating sheaves which do away with the need for a mechanical anchoring system between the haul rope and the carriage.
Precision engineering and compact construction are the striking features of the Funifor, a perfect fit down to the last detail. The low-rise, compact station buildings are also technically consistent and characteristic of the system. In addition to shorter and cost-saving planning and manufacturing times, this enables harmonious integration into the mountain landscape.
