Belted Manlift Replacement
Increasingly, plant managers and safety managers around the country are searching for a safe and economical solution for replacing belted man-lifts. Essentially, a belted man-lift is a tall column running vertically through a hole in every floor of a building. The column has a belt running continually around it, with foot and hand-holds placed every few feet. A worker steps on the foot hold and grabs the hand-hold to ride up or down to a desired floor.
An antiquated piece of equipment responsible for dozens of work place injuries each year as well as numerous recent fatalities, the belted man-lift is used in many power plants, chemical refineries, and mills & silos around the country. The typical solution for replacing these belted man-lifts is custom designing, buying and installing a special purpose elevator manufactured by a number of different outlets. Unfortunately these machines are often highly cost-prohibitive.
Fortunately, Century Elevators has developed an economical belted man-lift replacement - a rack and pinion permanently installed elevator system. Call us today for details and a consultation on how to update your plant with a safe and economical special purpose elevator.
