Rack and Pinon Lifts
What is a Rack-and-Pinion Lift?
Rack-and-pinion lifts are a type of lift generally used on construction sites around the United Kingdom and world too safely and securely transport goods, construction tools and materials between floors. This type of lift is designed and engineered to offer strong performance, durability and the lifting capacity required to lift heavier loads. They are also designed and engineered as temporary hoists or permanent hoists as an industrial lift and are usually completely enclosed. They generally include interlocking door and exceed safety regulations in the environments and situations where they are used to transport goods and people between floors. They also usually arrive at the construction site pre-assembled and include self-erecting fold out work platforms, which dramatically reduce the amount of time required to install a rack-and-pinion type of lift. Equipped with a drive assembly on the car platform, the lifting power of this type of lift is provided by a motor driving a pinion gear, with each gear operating on a stationary rack connected to a supporting tower. They are also available in a number of various cab sizes, lifting capacities and control options, depending on the construction site they are being used on. Rack-and-pinion lifts are also manufactured with independent over-speed safety devices, consisting of a governor-operated brake and separate pinion operating on the same rack.
What is the Main Function of a Rack-and-Pinion Lift?
The main use of a rack-and-pinion lift is on construction sites around the world to provide a safe, secure and reliable way to transport goods, construction tools and workers between floors. This type of lift could also in the years ahead be designed and engineered to be used in even more and more construction environments and situations.
Rack-and-pinion lifts are the workhorse lift used on construction sites around the United Kingdom to transport work crews and construction tools and materials between levels on the site. Engineered and designed for the heavier loads lifted on construction sites, rack-and-pinion lifts generally arrive at the construction site pre-assembled; therefore, ready to operate. This type of lift is being used more and more instead of traditional traction-style construction lifts that have been used on construction sites for decades previous.
