Case Study – New Goods Lift for Converted Beaconsfield Garage
Beaconsfield Motors on the Penn Road was owned by the Yolland family back in the 1960s. In fact you can see the owner proudly standing by the pumps in this photo from Beaconsfield Historical Society. In the 1990s it became a Honda Dealer and most recently it was leased and converted for Majestic Wines – which is where Tower Lifts becomes a part of the story.
Goods Lift Installation in Beaconsfield
As part of the conversion of the old garage building, Tower Lifts has recently completed the installation of a 2 stop goods lift. This stand alone model is ideal for buildings with a mezzanine, or multi-floor application. Its specification includes:
- 0.15m/s lifting speed.
- Control panels fitted on ground and upper floor.
- Magnetic starter and overload fuse included in pre-wired control box.
- Switch system ensures lift lands level with upper floor.
- Overload relief valve and upper level travel limit switch.
- Lowering system for emergency situations.
- Electrical system and hydraulic power pack on ground level, separately housed.
- Cylinders fitted with emergency velocity fuse in event of line breaking.
The goods lift is manufactured with twin loading gates, fitted with perspex panels on each of two stops. These have a magnetic interlock system which means that the gates can only operate in concert with the lift controls. Should the loading gates be open, on any level, the lift won’t operate.
