Detachable Grip: The grip is able to open and close during regular operation allowing carriers to detach from the line and travel at a different speed. Detachable grips allow a greater line speed to be used, usually twice that of a fixed grip chair. There is a limit to how fast passengers can load a lift; a lift moving at greater than 2.5 m/s is very difficult to load, and a load interval of less than 5 seconds forces passengers to rush, and creates potential misload situations.
