Mezzanine Goods Lifts
Wondering What a Mezzanine Lift Is?
A mezzanine floor is designed to maximise unused vertical floor space in warehouses or factories. It’s usually built between the floor and the ceiling, and often forms a wide walkway around the perimeters of the building. It’s not classified as ‘proper’ floor, but it’s utilised in just the same way as any other floor. Which is the reason for the emergence of mezzanine goods lifts.
The Uses of Mezzanine Goods Lifts
In order that maximum use is extracted from a mezzanine floor, lifts are installed either through the flooring, or attached to the rails along the inner edge of the platform. These are used to facilitate transport of goods, or people between floors. Mezzanine goods lifts will often be transporting heavy loads, throughout the day, every day, so a durable, high-performance operating system is required.
Tower Lifts Design and Install Goods Lifts
Tower Lifts has been designing and installing bespoke goods lifts for commercial use since 2006, and we’ve worked in virtually every commercial setting imaginable. Mezzanine goods lifts provide us with a new operating environment to design for, but the same process of determining function, volume and regularity of use still drives the practical decisions we need to make.
A Range of Goods Lifts for Mezzanine Floors
Just as mezzanine floors come in different shapes and sizes, so do the lifts to serve them. Tower Lifts is able to design and install the full range, from compact designs through to heavy duty goods lifts that would be capable of carrying the weight of a vehicle. The dimensions of our mezzanine goods lifts can be adjusted to your requirements.
Goods lifts need to be adaptable, and quick to install. That’s why many of the lifts we install in commercial environments are modular, self-supporting structures. This means that they can be easily attached to the existing mezzanine floor fittings, which minimises the installation process. If you require a goods lift with attendant, we use the same operating structure, but with emergency communication, and cabin controls included.
For smaller loads, we can install a dumbwaiter style, small goods lift. This is a cabinet lift which is designed either for floor-level, or waist-level loading. It carries up to 100kg and is very durable.
Installing Mezzanine Goods Lifts
At Tower Lifts we enjoy designing vertical transport solutions for businesses. We always start, therefore, with a site visit, so we can take a look at the environment the lift needs to serve. And then we ask two questions:
- What Do You Need Your Goods Lift To Do? We need to know this in order to assess what your goods lift will be made out of, what kind of usage it needs to be able to sustain, and whether you are likely to need a lift with attendant.
- What Size Loads Will Your Commercial Goods Lift Carry? The capacity of your lift is determined by the maximum weight and volume of the goods you need it to carry. This will also determine whether you need a small goods lift, a standard goods lift, or a heavy-duty goods lift.
Once we understand your requirements, we’ll make recommendations based on our assessment of the environment in which the lift will operate. Our goal is always to design and install the vertical transport solution for your needs.
Will the Installation of a Goods Lift Disrupt Business?
Our experienced installation team is very used to working in busy commercial environments. Most of the goods lifts we install cause little disruption, and we’ll schedule our work to minimise disruption to your business. As professionals, the Tower Lifts team can be depended on to behave courteously and professionally when encountering customers or employees.
