A lot of companies are put off installing a new lift as they see it as a disruptive and longwinded installation process. This couldn’t be further from the truth; in fact, it takes just five steps to install a modern lift system:

Setting Columns

After initial consultation and yourself and the technician have decided on the right positioning for the elevator; this place needs to be spaceful enough for workers to install the system, floors on all levels need to be strong enough o support the system and here needs to be enough overhead clearance for loading and off-loading cargo. From here, columns will be bolted and guided into place.

Adding the carriage

The chosen carriage will be placed in the columns in the exact position indicated by marking which will be laid out on the floor. Wheel blocks re fitted to the column sand bolted to the carriage uprights efore lift chains are installed and connected to the wheelblocks.

Raising the drive base

For mechanical lifts a drive base will need to be lifted on top of the columns. This motordrive will be bolted into position and welded into the main supports.

Wiring electrical components

All lifts are now electronically controlled and once the main installation is complete your technician will complete any appropriate wiring ensure your lift will work at the flick of a switch.
