Abstract

Guide rails which take place in structure of elevator, are the important elements for safety of elevator systems. They have attached together end to end with the fishplates and bolts, and are anchored to wall with brackets. Connections between guide rails and brackets are provided by clips. To ensure the safe operation of elevators, the guide rails, fishplates, brackets, bolts, clips have enough strength against to loads and forces which affect these elements. In this study, shear tests are performed to examine mechanical properties of bolts and clips which are used guide rail anchor element. The results which are gained from stress calculations and experiments are compared and interpreted.
