Lift table with passenger transport

Lift table at the lower stop - door open
Hydraulic scissor lift table for bridging a level difference.
The task in this project was that a pallet or a trolley including an accompanying person had to be transported from street level to the room below. Due to the limited space, no additional stairs could be built at this point, so the trained employee had to be able to ride on the lifting table.
The lifting table has a load capacity of 1000 kg and a platform size of 1775 x 1300 mm. The level difference is 900 mm.
Additional equipment from the lifting table included railings, a portal as fall protection, a monitored gate, a tear plate on the platform, a mesh skirt as underflow protection and 2 additional buttons.

For this lift table with passenger transport we not only helped with the planning, but also carried out the assembly and acceptance with an authorized civil engineer. There was a bit of a challenge with delivery and insertion. The customer's door was narrower than the lifting table, so we had to deliver it on a special metal pallet. Only in the building were we able to get the lifting table from this pallet and swivel it horizontally using chain hoists. The rest of the assembly was child's play for our experienced fitters.

The lifting table was handed over to our satisfied customer in 2020 and is still looked after by our service staff.

Details of the lifting table with accompanying person

Lift table with accompanying person at the lower stop

If the lift table is at the lower stop, the trained employee can open the gate. To do this, the mechanical latch must first be moved and the gate opened with muscle power.
The lifting table can only be lifted once the gate and latch are working properly again are closed.

The gap between the lifting table and the floor is 15mm. This makes it easy to load with a trolley or pallet truck.

We covered the wall at the back with a smooth sheet of metal so that there are no shearing or crushing points. Signage with operating instructions was also necessary, which we supplied.

Lifting table with mesh skirt as underflow protection

If the lifting table is located at the upper stop, the area under the lifting table must be secured. This is necessary because you cannot see under the hydraulic scissor lift table with passenger transport from either the upper stop or the platform.
Here the customer claimed to use a mesh shirt or a chain curtain. This ensures that no person or goods get under the lifting table and are injured or damaged.
In addition to the grid shirt, the safety bar required by the standard is of course installed.
This is allowed according to the standard must be mounted a maximum of 8 mm inwards from the outermost edge. As soon as the bar feels resistance when lowering, the lifting table stops. Only after a short lift can you go further down again.
The gate on the platform cannot be opened in this lifting position because the positive contact is closed.

Lift table ready for loading at the upper stop

At the upper stop, the employee can pushthe pallet or trolley over the narrow side onto the lifting table. He then stands on the lifting table and can lower the lifting table in dead man mode using the control element on the platform.
A galvanized tear plate was mounted on the platform.This ensures appropriate anti-slip protection and protects the lifting table from moisture.
The two railings on the long sides of the scissor lift table are permanently mounted.The gate at the rear is equipped with a forced contact and cannot be opened during the lift or in the top position.
The chain can be easily unhooked using the carabiner for loading.

Portal traveling on the lifting table as fall protection

The gantry is built on the lift table platform and serves as fall protection from the upper stop when thelift tableis at the bottom.
The portal then serves as a railing at the upper stop and is required by the standard for a level difference of 500mm.It is permitted up to a height of 1600 mm.
The red and white chain is not necessary according to the standard, but the labor inspector wanted an additional safety device for people who want to climb down by crawling. Installing a chain is often quicker than a long discussion with the authorities 🙂
