Car lift table & car lift

Car - Lift table
Lift cars with scissor lift table to the next floor.

Car lift tables, car lifts or car lifts (Carlift) are used, as the name suggests, to transport cars from one floor to the next. Depending on the application, we lift the vehicles with a scissor lift table or with a column lifter. Passenger transport is not provided for in the classic application and is only allowed with great effort.

The scissor lift table is usually more cost-effective, but requires a greater pit depth. If there is no pit, a column lifter is usually used. This works like a forklift with a mast. The mast or column is mounted laterally in the shaft and for this purpose the platform moves up or down with the car.

Assembly, commissioning and acceptance of the car lift table

At first glance, car lift tables look like a classic scissor lift table, but the devil is in the details. Due to the rolling load, the lifting table must be made much more stable than a lifting table with an evenly distributed load. Likewise, the orientation of the fixed bearing side in the shaft must be taken into account.
The control of car lift tables must be specially adapted to the application and built in accordance with the elevator standard EN81-31. A classic lift table control only has a standard button with UP-DOWN emergency stop, this is not sufficient here.

In addition, our lifting tables are equipped with a bolt lock, which fixes the platform in the upper stop by means of bolts in the shaft. This prevents a sinking when driving and protects the person in the car.

Elevator doors with appropriate locking must be installed at the stops. The gates only open when the platform is in the appropriate position. The gates can be designed not only as revolving doors but also as sectional doors or roller shutters.

The installation and commissioning should be carried out by a specialist company, as this is special elevator technology and the installation is not self-explanatory. In addition, after successful commissioning, an acceptance must also be carried out by a civil engineer.

Car lift tables from the professional

Car scissor lift table in the shaft

Car lifting tables are most often used in a driving shaft. The shaft can be made of concrete, wood or, as in the example photo, of steel profiles with glass elements.

The shaft must be flush with the platform and must not have any protrusions. At the stops, the gates must also be installed flush with the platform.
Shafts are usually manufactured by the customers, but we also offer metal shafts if required.

Lifting table with canopy

A car lift table with a canopy is nothing more than a lifting table with columns on the platform on which a roof is then mounted.

The advantage of such a car lifter is that when you reach the lowest position, you can no longer see that a system is installed here. The car stage is then “hidden” in the ground.
The roof can be designed in such a way that you apply the same covering as that of the environment, thus achieving an even better visual result.
These car lift tables can either be used as a garage, or you can also equip the lower stop with a gate so that you can park your car in the basement.
The operation from a lifting table with canopy always takes place from the upper stop, as you have to have the area from the roof in view.

Car lift outside the building without shaft

If no shaft can be built or wants to be built, then the car lift tables can also be equipped with appropriate railings and gates.

Depending on the country regulations or local building regulations, appropriate safety technology must be installed here. We always support our customers and clarify what is necessary before delivery.

In this example, operation is only allowed from below, so that you can see the danger area under the stage. The upper stop was secured with a gate.

On the platform of the car lift table, a railing was installed on two long sides and a gate on a narrow side.
Thus, with this lifting table you can easily liftyour car outside the building to the upper floor.

Column lifters as vehicle lifts

Column lifters are used when no pit can be produced in the lower stop or when the lifting height is too high for an auto scissor lift table.
In this solution, columns were placed on both long sides. With these columns, the platform located in the middle is raised. Since there is no pit, there is a ramp in front of the column lift. Railings are mounted on the platform of the car lift as a safeguard.
Automatic gates were installed at both stops, which can only be opened when the stage has arrived at the appropriate position.
With such complex systems, we always recommend that the installation is carried out by a specialist company.
Following the assembly of the carlift, we always have an acceptance by a civil engineer. This checks the system and the assembly and issues a test book.
