The ski village of Neuastenberg in the Hochsauerland ski region has Germany’s first fixed-grip quad chairlift with individual footrests and manually operated restraining bars. It replaces the 40-year-old Osthang surface lifts I + II.
The restraining bars are closed by the passengers and lock automatically as soon as they reach the bottommost position. Pretensioned spring packs on the chair enable the restraining bar to open automatically by a third on entry into the top station; final opening is performed by the passengers.
