Spike® Transport is a people mover that requires minimal space and permits a flexible route. The individual cabins accommodating up to eight passengers can travel at up to speeds of 60 km/h even with short cycle times, allowing for high transportation capacities and short transit times. Steep inclines of up to 45° are handled effortlessly and comfortably with a level compensation mechanism for passengers. Extremely tight horizontal and vertical radii make the Spike® people mover a universal passenger transportation system.
The single-rail shuttle operation for small-scale applications is possible as well as the realization of large-scale, branched transport networks. The scope of feasible applications ranges from flexible access lift installations to the development of sensitive areas as a visitor rail service both in summer and in winter.
Thanks to its extremely quiet operation, even indoor routes such as e.g. in shopping centers or terminal areas are not a problem. Furthermore, it also allows great height differences to be overcome over just a short distance.
A wide range of different cabin shapes are available, which can be installed in a modular fashion. In addition to closed cabins, open versions have also proven an interesting alternative to conventional passenger transportation systems, in particular along attractive tourist routes. For example, a vehicle developed specifically for scenic ways with 12 seats transversely to the direction of travel offers an excellent panorama view and a special traveling experience, which can be further augmented via optional fun elements along the route such as tight curves as well as bumps and dips.
This allows Spike® to take on even extraordinary passenger transportation tasks and break new ground, such as at dark rides and on other amusement rides.
