250kg Capacity Loading Baylift Installed at Onestop, Wakefield
The installation at Onestop, Wakefield is an excellent example of how a goods liftcan be used to assist with deliveries. This loading Bay Lift was installed outdoors as a self-supporting stand in the carpark of the premises.
The lift has a maximum working load of 250kg and is enclosed in a mesh shaft. The platform size was manufactured to 1000mm x 1300mm and guarded 900mm high on three sides to suit the loading on and off the same side.
At the entrance to the lift at both levels, 2000mm high gates were fitted with electrical interlocks to prevent the gates being opened unless the platform is docked at the appropriate level. At the lower level, a fixed ramp was provided to assist loading on to the 50mm deep platform.
A 20 amp, 240 volt, single-phase supply was required, terminated in a double pole switch at the lower level. Control is via a hold to run, push button control station adjacent to the gates at both levels.
The lift was manufactured at Penny Hydraulics UK premises within a four week lead-time and a planned maintenancepackage was taken out so that regular Thorough Examinations are taken care of in accordance with LOLER legislation.
