A pawl device is a piece of safety equipment which has been developed for hydraulic lifts in accordance with European regulations. A pawl device has two main functions:
- It stops the car from dropping due to an oil leak or a variation in the oil level.
- It keeps the car stable in the event of increased rupturing of the cabling.
The pawl device comes complete with a hydraulic damping system which ensures a level lower than gn (9.81 m/s2) which provides an alternative to the traditional pit dampener.
