LWL Clutch and Interlock

Reduce risk. Maintain compliance. Maximize availability.

An astounding 58% of elevator zone locks either don’t work or have been bypassed, according to a study conducted in 2022 by a major US elevator association. Traditional zone locks increase risk when they are either improperly installed or circumvented.

Introducing the Retrofittable GAL Car Door Interlock and LWL Clutch

The LWL Clutch and Car Door Interlock package from Vantage adds another level of protection to your elevators. It combines the functionality of a gate switch and a zone lock into one device, lessening the chance of human error and circumvention when it comes to keeping your car doors closed during operation.

Designed to work with the GAL MOVFR II Harmonic Door Operator and standard MOH and MOCPH Hoistway interlock packages, the LWL Clutch and Car Door Interlock package can be retrofitted to existing installations quickly, easily—and inexpensively.
