Goods Elevator Description
This goods elevator is a double pillar machine with a Safe Working Load of 1000 Kgs and a lift height of 4100mm. The lifting platform will be big enough to allow a standard pallet (1200 x 1000mm) to be loaded using a hand pallet truck. At the upper level, there will be a landing plate to allow easy unloading. The goods elevator is constructed from mild steel with a painted finish and would be bolted to the floor. Lifting with this goods elevator is accomplished via chains driven by a motor gearbox mounted at the top of the one column with a crossover shaft to the other column.
Safety Guard to PD 5304:2005 Safety of Machinery
The safety guard is constructed from 40 x 40 x 3mm mild steel box section and 2mm mild steel sheet to meet the requirements of PD 5304:2005 Safety of Machinery. It would enclose the goods elevator to a height of 6300mm with a hinged door at each level through which the pallets can be loaded and unloaded. Each door is electrically interlocked to prevent the goods elevator being operated with a door open and in addition, the doors are mechanically locked closed whilst the machine is running. Each door may only be opened when the lifting carriage is at the appropriate level.
