Design Notes:
  • With 1 shaft operating 2 cable spools will ensure 'level and even' travel of Platform Lift as it raises and lowers between floors
  • Safety Rail Added to Final CAD Design
  • The Simplicity of the setup will add to the longevity of the Platform Lift System as well as the required maintenance needed to lubricate the cables and pulleys
  • Wheel Guide and Basement Floor Cut-Away-keeps platform centered in Lift Shaft for ease of loading and unloading of cargo
  • Inexpensive Option when compared to installing an elevator to move materials.
