Material lifts are available for warehouses, restaurants, hospitals and more. There are many material lift applications that can suit businesses who have specific lifting needs. The transporting of materials is made possible for all shapes, sizes and weights of material between two or more levels. No human passengers are allowed by law.
Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors (VRC's)
Material lifts can be installed permanently to your building and used for consistent commercial use of lifting light to heavy freight. Convenient, low-cost alternatives to elevators, material lifts, or vertical reciprocating conveyors (VRCs), are designed for moving material, tools, boxes, equipment, and palletized loads of freight, to different building levels both inside and outside.
Material lifts are relatively quick and easy to install with no shaft or reinforced floors required. This makes them ideal for older buildings. We provide custom and standard material lifts that are fully compliant with ANSI/ASME B20.1 and OSHA, and feature platforms and cages of any size or capacity to meet every need. Additionally, we provide load designs with minimal building modifications. They are safe, efficient, and modular in design.
Vertical reciprocating conveyors are a safe and economical way to raise and lower materials in:
Material lifts are efficient vertical reciprocating conveyors that provide fast, efficient and convenient access to and from:
VRCs are not elevators and must not be used to transport people. They have their own national code (ASME B20.1) and are specifically exempt from the national elevator code. In 1981, PFlow helped change the national safety codes to exempt "material-moving" vertical conveyors from "people-moving" elevator safety regulations.
These lift systems can be installed within the interior of a building for floor-to-floor operations, on the outside of a building structure, or in an unused elevator shaft. The principal components of VRCs include guide columns, a carriage, and a mechanical or hydraulic actuating mechanism.
