Visionary ropeway technology in a class of its own
Double configuration, doubly secured
The innovative Funitel offers top ride comfort thanks to pneumatic suspension in a modern, ergonomic design. This very special ropeway system has a signature design feature: the double configuration of one continuous rope loop to give four rope lines – two parallel haul ropes on the uphill side and two on the downhill side. This prevents wind-induced side swing of the cabins and ensures optimal wind stability. As a result, Funitel systems can operate at wind speeds of up to 100 km/h. Very long rope spans are mastered with ease. The specially designed pneumatic suspension of the cabins ensures exceptional ride comfort at all times, even at a drive speed of 7 m/s.
The combination of cutting-edge technology and individual customer wishes provides the foundation for the design and construction of every Funitel installation. Depending on the model, the ample cabins provide space for up to 24 passengers (including up to 18 seats). The panoramic windows in UV-resistant, tinted polycarbonate provide passengers with a unique all-round view.
