The contract of the office Handel Engineering includes the static calculation of the cabin and also the cabin hanger considering the structural safety as well as fatigue. The construction of the new cabins was part of the company Carvatech Karosserie und Kabinenbau GmBH.
For the Aerial Tramay Dachstein the old cabins and the cabine hanger were replaced by new ones. The static design of the new cabin is based on a number of 60+1 persons. At the bottom of the cabins a tank is attached, to transport water to the top station. In this case, a number of persons of 15+1 is permitted.
The cabin is manufactured in aluminum. The individual profiles are connected on one hand by welds to each other and on the other hand using rivet connection details. The roof and the walls consist of shaped tubes, and the primary floor structure consists of composite cross sections.
