Lift systems consist of many components that must have high strength and a high factor of safety. Rail brackets and steel clips are used for fixing guide rails to shaft walls, sustaining the loads and providing linearity for the guide rails; they are essential elements of the complete rail fastening system. In this study, in order to determine the loads to the bolts and clips complete rail fastening systems were designed. Stresses and deformations occurring in the guide rails, brackets, steel clips, and bolts are examined by experiments carried out. Results are interpreted with respect to the complete rail fastening system. The experimental results for clips and bolts and their impact on the complete system are interpreted separately.
