February 28, 2017 - Material handling equipment and safety products manufacturer, Wildeck, has introduced a product category for vertical material lifts. The “RML” product category is designed as an advancement over a traditional “VRC” (vertical reciprocating conveyor) since it allows authorized personnel to safely travel with their material between levels. Wildeck will introduce its “RiderLift” hydraulically-operated rideable material lift (RML) in Wildeck Booth # S-1012 at ProMat 2017, April 3-6, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL.
The RiderLift RML is ideally suited for industrial applications and has been designed to allow an authorized person to ride with their cargo to a second level and avoid having to climb stairs or rely on a co-worker to off-load material when the lift reaches its destination.
Standard car size is 6.0 ft. x 6.0 ft. x 80” H, and lifting capacity is 2,500 lbs., including rider. Standard top lifting height is 14 ft. (GND + 1) and lifting speed is 20 fpm. The RiderLift material lift is available in either “C” or “Z” loading patterns and features a keyed “enable” switch inside the car to ensure use only by authorized personnel. The RiderLift RML meets ASME A17.1 / CSA B44 code requirements. Qualified Elevator Contractors will install and service the lift and provide the end user with ongoing State-approved safety inspections and lift Certification, as required by the A17.1 code.
