Optimal safety plus maximum comfort The CS10 chair model
European ropeway standards stipulate that children with a body height of less than 1.25 m can only be carried on a chair with no special safety devices if accompanied by one adult per child. That can pose considerable organizational challenges for large families and ski schools. To address this problem, Doppelmayr developed the CS10 chair model which is innovative on a world scale.
The automatic locking of the restraining bar and the individual footrests ensure that all passengers – whether large or small – travel safely. Up to seven children with a minimum body height of 90 cm can be carried with just one accompanying adult.
A newly developed foot- or skirest for each passenger is attached to the restraining bar. When the restraining bar is closed, the footrest connecting tube rests between the passenger’s legs. This makes it impossible for the passenger to slip out of the seat.
After passenger loading, the restraining bar is automatically closed and locked. This operation is electromechanically monitored. The bar is not unlocked and automatically opened until the passengers have arrived at the top station.
