Freight lift without pit over 3 floors

Hydraulic column lifter with shaft tower as freight lift over 3 floors.

For this project, a well-known architect approached us with a special challenge. His customer, a large electronic components supplier, wants to connect its three floors with a freight elevator. Sounds like a simple task.

The challenge was that the first breakthrough had already been made and that in the lowest stop – in the basement – only a pit with a maximum depth of 130mm could be made. Due to this requirement, a solution with a lifting table or classic freight elevator would not have been possible. In addition, it was a must that 2 pallets had to be transported at the same time, which seemed hardly feasible due to the already existing – almost too narrow – breakthrough.

We have adapted our hydraulic column lifter exactly to the existing breakthrough. We positioned parts of the shaft scaffolding outside the shaft to gain platform width. Thanks to a special design, we were also able to adjust the construction height in such a way that the existing pit depth was sufficient. Here we were able to help customers save high costs for structural measures.

Delivery from the column lifter

Depending on their size and space requirements, our column lifters are delivered to the customer pre-assembled in order to be able to assemble faster.
Unloading is usually done by the customer. In this project, however, our fitter had to step in and unload the truck. After unloading, the parts are brought directly to the installation site and lifted into the shaft.

Lowest stop of the hydraulic freight lift

At the lower stop, in the basement, a 130 mm deep concrete pit was made so that there is no step when loading the platform. The platform of the column lifter sinks into this pit and closes flush with the floor.

On three sides, the lifting area of the freight lift is secured by a fixed lattice or sheet metal shaft. On one side there is a double door, which is secured by a forced contact.

The door of the column lifter in the basement can only be opened if the platform is also properly in this position.

At the back of the picture you can see the oil tank and the control of the system. We usually install these in the lowest stop, as this requires the least hose and cable lengths.
In addition, you also save laying in cable ducts and get a nicer look.

Middle stop from the column lifter without pit

Our continuous shaft scaffolding also secures in the second stop – on the middle floor – on three sides as fall protection. It also prevents encroachment in the danger zone. The mesh size of the shaft is produced according to the applicable standard.

In this stop, a door is also installed with a forced contact. However, this is located on the opposite side. The freight lift without pit is therefore a through-loader.

The gap between our shaft scaffolding and the floor is closed by the customer with a connection plate. This prevents anything from falling down.

Top stop of the freight lift with shaft scaffolding

As in the other two floors, a 3-sided shaft scaffolding was also installed on the third floor, the top stop. The side on which the lifting column is located was made with a full-surface sheet metal. This provides additional safety for man and machine.
The control button is installed on the side of the door. With this you can send the system on one of the floors. However, the freight lift without pit only starts when all doors are properly closed. This is monitored by the control system supplied and installed by us.
The individual doors can be emergency unlocked for maintenance. However, this may only be carried out by competent and trained persons.
We always carry out training directly after installation or in the course of maintenance.
