Goods Lift Description
This goods lift is a double pillar machine with a Safe Working Load of 1000 Kgs
and a lift height of 4170mm. 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 lift is
constructed from Grade 304 stainless steel and would be bolted to the floor. Lifting
with this goods lift 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 stainless steel box section and
3mm wire, 40mm aperture stainless steel weld mesh meet the requirements of PD 5304:2005
Safety of Machinery. It would enclose the goods lift to a height of 4730mm 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 lift being operated with
a door open and in addition, the doors are mechanically locked closed whilst the
goods lift is running. Each door may only be opened when the lifting carriage is
at the appropriate level.
