Vertical reciprocating conveyors are another way that we can enhance your workspace. They are a simple way to raise and lower equipment and materials in factories, warehouses, industrial plants, and institutions. These are not personnel elevators. They are designed to carry materials, supplies, or large objects from one floor of your building to another. They can be integrated into the construction of your mezzanine or they can be added to existing structures.
These mechanical lifts will enable you to store large objects or large amounts of product on another floor, freeing up more space on your ground floor. This is a safer, more effective method to getting products onto different floors. These vertical reciprocating conveyors will provide fast and efficient access to mezzanines, balconies, basements, and between levels of multiple story buildings.
A vertical reciprocating conveyor system brings a lot of added value to your workplace. As with every solution we provide, your mechanical lift will be built to fit into your building. Every lift structure will be in compliance with ANSI B20.1 and OSHA regulations. Depending on your needs, we can provide many features, including:
These structures are engineered with multiple safeties and precautions already in place. The primary components of a vertical reciprocating conveyor include guide columns, carriage, and a mechanical or hydraulic actuating mechanism. You won’t be transporting people on this vertical reciprocating lift, but your equipment and products will be safe. Slack cable limit switches prevent the cable from dropping any further once it has hit slack. Swing gates and ramps for floor mounted units take the grunt work out of loading the conveyor with larger equipment.
It is crucial to note that vertical reciprocating conveyors are not elevators. Elevators and vertical reciprocating conveyors operate under completely different national codes and regulations. Knowing the difference is essential to abide by building codes and construction law. They are still a valuable tool for your workplace, but they are not meant for personal use.
Our project managers and installation experts are there to make sure that your vertical reciprocating conveyor meets all the appropriate regulations. This is vital to avoiding possible fines, but also for the safety of your employees and anyone inside your facility. A significant element of optimizing your workspace is making sure that every piece of equipment and structure that we provide is as safe as possible for your functions.
