A Guide System is a system of steel, aluminum, or wire guides braced to a wall or supported below the headblock on which a series of counterweight arbors are guided up and down during counterweight rigging operation. Jay and Tee guide systems are rigid systems, and must be used on applications that exceed 30 feet, while wire guide systems may be used for shorter travels.
