Why Get a VRC Material Lift?

Increase production and profit margin at the same time.

Easy Transportation

VRC Material Lifts easily lift cargo up to your mezzanine floor. This saves you from having to use extra manpower just to transport materials up the stairs. It's important to note that due to OSHA regulations, VRCs are designed to only transport materials and NOT passengers. 

Safe Operation

VRC Material Lifts are safer because they prevent your workers from having extra strain put on them and it is easier to operate than a forklift. 

4,000 LB Capacity

PWI VRC Material Lifts come in capacities up to 4,000 lbs. This means you will be able to lift heavy freight with ease.

Things to Consider

Concerns from other customers.

Will a VRC Material Lift put strain on my building?

PWI Material Lift VRCs are built in a self-containing structure. This means there won’t be any strain put on your building or mezzanine.

A VRC is too expensive.

A PWI Material Lift VRC will allow your production team to move materials without the added cost of a forklift or forklift operator. VRCs are extremely reliable and typical wear is not an issue. With a little maintenance, a VRC will serve your company without added expense.

What safety features are included?

PWI Material Lift VRCs are designed to meet OSHA standards. All VRCs come with the Starke Secondary Brake Device, which is a load arrestor. This device will act as a secondary stopping device in the event of a fall.

What are the different names for a VRC Material Lift?

They are often called freight elevators although this term is discouraged because they are not intended for human passengers. VRC stands for vertical reciprocating conveyor but few people know what VRC stands for or consider a conveyor moving up and down.
Some call it a mezzanine elevator but that’s not a good name because these material lifts are not for people to use.
