Vertical lifting solutions to improve your workflow
Contrary to what their design suggests, mezzanine lifts, also known as VRCs, are not elevators. With their own national code (ASME B20.1) and an exemption from national elevator regulations, VRCs are “vertical reciprocating conveyors” that move materials, not people. Power and Motion can help you install a PFlow mezzanine lift to move materials in factories, warehouses, industrial plants, institution, or anywhere else that products or supplies need to go from one level to another.
Guide columns, carriage, and mechanical/hydraulic actuating mechanisms are the components that enable all mezzanine lifts to be installed for through-floor, interior, or exterior applications. This provides safe and convenient access between levels in multiple story buildings, and to/from mezzanines, balconies, and basements.
