VARIA Ski Rack
This ski rack is mounted outside the doors. It is robust and offers space for the safe transport of up to 5 pairs of skis and up to 2 snowboards per rack. The modular design allows a maximum of equipment flexibility. Thanks to the lightweight aluminium construction, the weight is around 10 kg per item, depending on the model. The ski rack can be quickly and easily mounted or dismounted, and the high quality of the workmanship guarantees a maximum service life.
TWISTIN Ski Rack
The TWISTIN ski rack is a combined, automatically rotating and clamping bracket inside the cabin for the transport of any number of skis. It makes an efficient entry and exit possible, while also offering a constant seating comfort. A simple, screwed cover (optional) allows the rack to quickly disappear. The cabin dimensions (length) change if this option is selectedd.
VARIA Bike Rack
This bike rack, which was specially designed by CWA, fits in all "VARIA" ski holders. It is not necessary to dismount the ski rack. The Bike Rack is CE-certified and can support a suspended load of up to 20 kg. It is made from EN-AW-6060 T4 (aluminium), is delivered in an unpainted state (can be painted as an option) and weights approx. 12 kg.
This Bike-Holder, which is unpainted and made from raw aluminium, makes it possible to safely transport bikes outside the cabin without VARIA ski racks. With an added weight of approx. 9 kg, it is both lightweight and robust.
Upholstered seat (1 piece)
Upholstered seats and backrests add comfort and convenience to the cabin. The upholstery is available in water-repellent synthetic leather in four different colours. The seat remains foldable.
Upholstered seat (separated)
Upholstered seats and backrests add comfort and convenience to the cabin. The upholstery is available in water-repellent synthetic leather in four different colours. The seat remains foldable.
Foldable seat (2-4 passengers)
Depending on the requirements, the folding seat can be covered with carpet or upholstered in a version with noble synthetic leather. Both versions provide a wide choice of colours, to ensure optimum coordination with the colour of the cabin.
The convincing, timeless design provides high seating comfort and the passengers feel comfortable very quickly. Also in summer and in tropical, humid climates these seating versions provide the highest comfort. The colour and arrangement can be individually designed and customized to the requirements and design of the cabin.
A heating module mounted under the synthetic leather ensures a warm and pleasant feeling in the cabin. The heated cushions can thereby be replaced separately. Seats with an integrated heating are upholstered and covered with synthetic leather (available in four colours). The material is water-repellent and very easy to maintain.
Installations at the station (such as power rails) are not included in the CWA delivery.
In warmer regions, these seats made from synthetic resin-coated wood provide a pleasant travelling experience. The material is environmentally friendly, weather resistant (-40 to +80°) and very durable. At the same time, these seats also give your cabin a wonderful, timeless design.
Standing / leaning bench
With a height of 700 mm, the ergonomically shaped standing/leaning bench offers the possibility of comfortable leaning in a standing-only cabin. The bench is available as standard with carpeting in five variants. The bench can be fitted on the valley, mountain or mast side. The standing/leaning bench variants are used in all ST cabins.
Foldable seat at the operator's position
For maximum seating comfort, the folding seat at the operator’s position is upholstered and can be covered as selected with carpet (in 5 versions) or synthetic leather (in 4 versions).
Seat box for equipment or material
The equipment or material box provides secure and lockable transportation of equipment carried or materials, as well as to transport seated passengers. The equipment or material box can be covered with carpet or, in the upholstered version, covered with synthetic leather.

Removable seat components
Seat with foil
As an alternative to carpet coverings, we also offer the option of covering folding seats with a water-repellent, weather-resistant (-60°C to +107°C) and dimensionally stable foil. This is a 80 micron thick, laminated PVC with an abrasion-resistant and easy to clean surface. You can freely select the design, or even apply your own logo at this location. The foil is easy to replace and makes possible to change the design; depending on the season or the event.
A WLAN/GPS transmitter mounted on the cabin roof guarantees data transfer from all electronic units in the cabin to the station. A stable network connection can be maintained with the installation of two aerials in both directions, despite the occasionally strong movements of the cabin (six to eight Megabits per second).
The latest information about attractions, events and special offers, as well as music and films, can be played for the entertainment of the passengers thanks to a complex multimedia system in every cabin. AUDIO and VIDEO components can thereby be combined, but can also be used separately. The necessary power supply must be clearly defined in advance.
Surveillance cameras of various commercially available models provide a continuous image transmission to the control room.
A standard surveillance camera transmits an image to the station in predefined time intervals. Up to five images a second can be transmitted in cases of emergency. All the recordings can be electronically stored.
All the components of the Infotainment Systems are included in the delivery from CWA.
The AUDIO multimedia system consists of a standardised, commercially available audio system including loudspeaker and amplifier. The installation of the loudspeaker in the inner roof provides an optimal sound for the passengers
The VIDEO multimedia system includes a temperature-resistant LCD screen (-30 to +40°) with individual screen diagonal and a commercially available player. The monitor can be fixed at the centre of either the front and/or the mast side.
Spot lighting in the vending machine housing
An LED with a power of one Watt can be integrated into the vending machine housing to illuminate the cabin while running at night or in case of an emergency. The lighting can be switched on or off individually by the cable car operator.
Indirect lighting under the bench
The indirect illumination with two LED spots underneath the bench primarily illuminates the floor area of the cabin, and represents a pleasant source of light.
Indirect lighting additional LED spot
In order to better illuminate the entry and exit area, it is recommended to install an additional LED lamp. With the optional dim function, an additional, special ambience can be created.
Indirect lighting in the interior roof
Indirect illumination with LED strips on the sides of the interior roof can provide a discreet illumination of the interior of the cabin. Thanks to electronically adjustable colour changes, the room climate can be individually adjusted to your needs.
To improve the optical appearance of your cabin, LED strips can be fitted to the inner edge of the glazing. The colour spectrum is wide. We will match the colours to your wishes and requirements.
Due to the position lights on the mountain and valley side, the position of the cabin can also be easily detected from farther away. Furthermore, the position lights impart an elegant and noble appearance.
Dimming function for the lighting
The brightness of all the lighting elements can, of course, be varied using an additional Dim function. This will ensure a pleasant ambience during the ride. Sufficient light will be available while entering and exiting, as well as in emergency situations.
Paintwork and foils
Door paintwork different from the standard
In the Basic Model of the OMEGA IV, the doors of the cabin are powder-coated black.
Would you like more individuality? No problem! With this option you can determine the colour of the door yourself. The colour can be adapted to customer-specific wishes.
This high-quality finish with a changing optical appearance will give your cabin a very special and luxurious look. Countless colour variations are available. The appearance of your cabin will change according to the incident light.
Two coloured paintwork
The individuality of the cabin is increased by the multi-colour paintwork, with arbitrary colour design much greater and, thus differentiates itself even more.
Painted VARIA Ski Rack
As standard, the ski rack is untreated in raw aluminium. A painted ski rack gives your cabin an even more individual touch and differentiates you even more.
Spezial paint for pillars
As an additional customised design element you can applicate spezial paint pillars (RAL system).
Coloured polycarbonate window
In addition to the standard glazing in grey 133, polycarbonate window panes are also available in five additional colour variants (transparent, bronze 130, blue 113, grey 215, orange 710,).
The material is just as UV-resistant as the standard glazing.
The window panes are finished on both sides and made more scratch-resistant by means of a special process. The window panes become less vulnerable and can be more easily cleaned without leaving a trace.
It has been proven that the penetration of IR radiation into the cabin can be reduced by sputtering the polycarbonate panels. The interior temperature thereby remains cooler and the journey becomes more comfortable. In addition, the sputtering gives the panels an elegant mirror effect and makes them even more resistant to scratches.
Scratch-Protection foil, interior
Sticking a protective foil to one side of the panes (either inside and/or outside) increases the protection against scratches, dirt and condensation, and provides a cleaner, clearer view over a longer period. A replacement of the protective foil can be easily carried out without affecting the ropeway operation.
Ski protection pane
An additional internal glazing (valley/mountain and mast-side) made from polycarbonate provides maximum protection against scratches, dirt and condensation, and provides a cleaner, clearer view. The installation takes place with clamping profiles. The pane can thereby be quickly changed.
SAFARI barred window
Optimal air circulation and a spectacular ride are provided by this variant. Instead of polycarbonate window panes, chrome steel bars are used with a maximum opening of 130 mm. Please note the local laws here.
ALCATRAZ grille window
Optimal air circulation and a spectacular ride are provided by this variant. Instead of polycarbonate window panes, a fine-mesh chrome steel grille is used, and is the perfect alternative to the SAFARI barred windows.
VSG glass floor
A laminated safety glass floor broadens the outlook for the passengers and thereby creates a unique ride. A scratch-protection foil is applied to the floor as protection, and can be quickly and easily replaced. A VSG glass floor has an impact on the cabin weight and must be discussed in detail.
The laminated safety glazing is glued to the outside of the cabin and is finished off with a dot matrix. The thickness can be selected between 4.96 – 6.96 mm.
Full glazing instead of metall plate
Air conditioning and ventilation
Internal folding window
The folding window can be opened with one hand and can be fitted on the valley, mountain & mast side. The internal opening angle is 35 degrees. The folding window is prepared in grey as standard, and the colour of the glass will be matched to the colour of the panes.
Coloured internal folding window
Ventilation from below in the kick panel
The ventilation concept developed by CWA can be closed watertight with a magnetic flap. The constant passive ventilation through continuous air stream created from the movement of the cabin guarantees a noticeably improved through ventilation of the cabin in the foot area.
Second kick panel incl. Ventilation
The ventilation kick-panel that is used ensures even better air circulation in the passenger area, while also providing an additional window protection in the foot area. This equipment variant is especially suitable for very hot regions.
Enlarged opening wind-down window
Larger window openings provide more air flow in the interior of the cabin.
Slide-up window instead of slide down window
In areas with lots of rain, it is recommended to arrange the opening in the cabin door to be in the lower area. The air circulation that arises at hip level makes an optimal ventilation of the seated person possible.
The heat absorbing roof element consists of a lightweight aluminium-composite panel (two aluminium cover plates and a plastic core). The cover plates are white stove-enamelled on both sides using a polyester paint.
The use of a roof-mounted hatch is recommended for even better cabin ventilation. This consists of an anodised aluminium frame with 10 mm thick acrylic glazing.
Cross-current fan with automatic control
With an airflow of 155 m3/h, the cross-current fan guarantees constant ventilation. The function is independent of the airflow resulting from the movement of the cabin, and can be used at a temperature from 20 to +60°C.
Cross-flow fan with potentiometer
Air conditioning system
A commercially available 24V standard unit is used for air conditioning with an air-conditioning unit. Simple maintenance and a rapid availability of any required spare parts is thereby guaranteed. This option has a significant impact on the cabin weight, and requires a corresponding power supply.
The constant passive ventilation through the use of the air stream aerates the cabin and makes every journey a pleasant experience. Since the air flow is at knee height, no unpleasant feeling of pulling is caused.
The constant electrical ventilation is completely weatherproof and works independently of the slip stream. This option is used for very hot and tropical regions.
Roof ventilation with radial fan
The radial fan built into the roof ensures a pleasant climate in the cabin. The ventilation power in the cabin is automatically regulated by an electronic temperature measurement. The ventilation nozzles in the interior can be arranged and opened individually.
Cover for the ventilation gills
Wind-down windows in doors
Roof hatch ZETA
Ventilation through kick panel
The hinged window can be opened using one hand and can be installed on the mountain or valley side. The opening angle outwards is 40/90 degrees. As standard, the hinged window is available in grey. As required, the colour can be adapted to the colour of the window. Through the improved air flow (over the heads of the passengers in the area of the roof), the cabin is better ventilated and makes the journey to a unique experience, also in hot temperatures.
Columns with protective foil
The interior structure of the cabin is stressed whenever it is used. A transparent 3M foil offers increased scratch protection and can be easily replaced.
Cover for the folding window
An additional perforated cover over the folding window prevents any deliberate or unintentional dropping or throwing of objects from the cabin.
Cover for the wind-down window
An additional perforated cover over the slide-down window prevents any deliberate or unintentional dropping of objects from the cabin.
Door lock monitoring system
An automatic monitoring of the door locking system when leaving the station is ensured with the door lock monitoring system. This consists of a permanent radio link between the station and the cabin. The system is maintenance-free.
In order to protect the cabin from damage and contamination during transport, a (white) polyethylene foil is applied using a rubber-resin adhesive. The foil is 80 µm ± 9 thick and remains weather-resistant for up to 12 months (in a Central European climate).
Rubber bump increased
Increased collusion protection of the cabin. Material: structural polyurethane foam 60 SH.
Trapped video controll
Trapped video controll to deter from vandalism. The trapped video controll sign comes in a aluminium frame and will be installed in the inner roof of the cabin.
Coloured kick panel
Transportation packaging (shrink foil)
In order to ensure optimum protection from possible damage during transportation and/or contamination, the cabin is shrink-wrapped in a 0.2 mm thick PE-Coax flat film. The foil can be completely removed quickly from the cabin.
Gill ventilation cover
Power supply through SuperCaps
Depending on the consumption and the route used, or if several cabins have to be supplied with electricity, we would recommend a power supply using SuperCaps.
The SuperCaps developed and patented by CWA deliver a constant power supply. They are recharged via a charging rail in the station every time the cabin runs through (charging cycle 10 - 20 s). There is a 12/24 VDC circuit (via Powerbox). The SuperCaps have a capacity of 165 F (54 Wh) and ensure a 24 h operation. In the case of a power failure, the elements that are relevant for an emergency situation (camera, emergency light, intercom) remain in operation via UPS (battery).
Power supply through batteries
The installation of batteries can be useful, depending on the consumption and the route used, or if individual cabins have to be supplied with electricity.
Batteries with a capacity of 80 – 18,000 Wh and a power range from 20 – 15,000 Watt are used. The batteries must be recharged every day in the station outside the operating times using an external charger. Depending on the type of battery used, a charging cycle can last 3 - 12 hours.
Power supply through solar panels
The solar panels provide the cabin with electricity from direct sunlight during the journey. Solar panels are normally used for the charging of the emergency systems.
Electro-mechanical door operator
This certified door mechanism with integrated lock monitoring and pinch protection ensures safe opening and closing of the door at all times.
Battery compartment in the floor or on the roof
So that the cabin is ideally provided with power, the battery cabinet can be installed either in the floor or on the roof. The size and required quantity of power is heavily dependent on the project and must be discussed in detail.
Carriage for rescue sleds
This stable, rolling frame has been specially designed for the AKJA / Kanadier rescue sleds. It guarantees the transport of rescued persons using the gondola.
By means of an announcement system, it is possible to speak to each cabin from the station, and to provide instructions in case of an emergency.
Emergency communication between the passengers and the operator is possible for an operator by means of an intercom, with which every cabin can be individually addressed. The system contains an integrated power supply and is supplied as a turnkey radio unit. An emergency button on the unit activates all the emergency components (camera, light, emergency power, etc.).
In order to ensure safe abseiling of passengers in the event of an emergency, an abseil hook can be installed on the roof or in the interior of the cabin.
Additional roof hatch with hinge
Rescue can, e.g. be carried out through a roof hatch. The roof hatch is firmly lockable during operation and, by means of the hinge, can be easily opened in an emergency. Maintenance tasks on the roof, or the rescuing of passengers, can be carried out simple and quick through the roof hatch.
Evacuation window, revmovable or hinged
Another popular retrieval and rescue alternative is provided by the evacuation window, mountain and/or valley side. The evacuation window is integrated into the design of the cabin and provides the accustomed, unimpaired panoramic view.
Floor hatch with handrail
A floor hatch is very suitable for rescue operations through the cabin floor. Rescue equipment can be tidily stored in an available, optional box in the floor hatch and, as required, is easily and quickly available.
Floor hatch ZETA
Roof hatch ZETA
Fire extinguisher and fire blanket including bracket
In order to be ideally equipped in the event of a possible fire, the fire extinguisher and fire blanket provide optimum protection. It is recommended to install these components as a fixed installation. As an alternative, the fire extinguisher can be supplied yourself or supplied by CWA.
Additional equipment for maintenance and rescue
Operator logos can be individually attached to the window panes (mountain, valley and mast side).
A frame with a polycarbonate window mounted on the outside on the wind-down window of the door makes it possible to display advertising posters.
The adPAD VARIA is a inexpensive and low weight form of advertising. The high quality UV-resistant digital printing resists wind rain, snow and sun. The backing material is certified for fire protection (DIN EN 13 501-1) and 100% recyclable. The adPAD is available in two seizes: adPAD VARIA small (4S2B / 199 x 343 mm) and adPAD VARIA large (5S1B / 413 x 343 mm).

Natural rubber floor
As an alternative to the aluminium flooring, there is the option of laying a natural rubber floor covering.
Serrated sheet instead of ALTRO floor covering
As an alternative to the natural-rubber floor covering, there is the option to install an aluminium serrated-sheet floor covering. The aluminium floor covering is also as easy to clean and provides the necessary anti-slip characteristics.
The cleaning set is kept in a RAKO-BOX, and contains: two 500 ml bottles of power cleaner, a silicon oil pen, EASY-MOUNT (installation tool for pane mounting), a 500 ml spray bottle, a micro-fibre cloth and a pair of cleaning gloves.
The ceiling handhold permits safe and pleasant transportation of standing passengers and harmoniously blends in with the simple design in the cabin.
Horizontal retaining bars
For better protection of the window panes and to make it easier to lean the skis and sport equipment, a second retaining bar is installed. The retaining bars can also be provided with a restrictor or ski-stopper.
Door opening radio-controlled
For journeys without a cabin attendant, the doors are usually radio-controlled. A complete radio system is provided by CWA. We will be pleased to advise you and find the optimum version for your system.

Additional cabin guidance ZETA
Remote control on the roof
Further double sliding door
The further double sliding door permits quicker and more efficient loading and unloading of the passengers at the top / bottom station. The additional double sliding door is supplied inclusive of automatic door mechanism and control.
Material box on the roof
The material box on the roof is harmoniously integrated into the design of the cabin and material carried can be transported easily and uncomplicated. The material boxes can be locked and are easy to access from the roof.
Underfloor metal sheet facing
As required, the optional underfloor sheet metal facing available can also be painted in the same colour as the cabin and, thus, masterfully finishes off the cabin design. Due to diverse ventilation holes, the ventilation in the cabin remains ensured.
Additional guide bracket
The roof-mounted additional guide ensures a stable and safe cabin run through the station and is used above all in mixed ropeways (chair/gondola).
