MezzLight Handloaded Goods Lift for Josery Textiles

MezzLight Handloaded Goods Lift for Josery Textiles

Posted: 30 Jun 2015

Josery Textiles are leisurewear fabric manufacturers, selling fabrics by the roll. They are a British based company, manufacturing in their own factory in Hucknall, Nottingham.

Mr Tim Jones a representative from the company approached Penny Hydraulics Goods Lift department as they had a requirement for a goods lift to enable them to transport rolls of fabric in their warehouse. They needed to be able to quickly and safely move the goods between the ground floor and the mezzanine floor where the rolls were stored.

The weights of the fabric rolls were not large at under 200kg and they were not transported on pallets or in roller cages (which is typical for goods lifts, Instead Mr Jones asked if there was a way that the lift could be designed to allow easy loading of the rolls onto the platform by hand into boxes or crates.

Following a free of charge and no-obligation site visit by one of the specialist goods lift designers and further discussions about all items being hand loaded, the Goods Lift design engineers were able to specify a MezzLight Handloaded goods lift which was loaded at waist height at both ground and mezzanine levels. Having this set up allows a fixed guard frame at 900mm high and a small gate above, which prevents the necessity to have electrical interlocks.

At the lower level the gate is full height with a slam slut lock, with the lift docking at waist height again. The platform was sized at 1000 x 1000mm with guard frames two sides to suit the loading direction…perfect for the boxed and crates of fabric rolls it was carrying. There was an existing cage to the drop area which Penny Hydraulics coordinated the removal of as well as the extension of a hand rail to the edge of the lift caging. A 20 amp, 240 volt, single-phase supply was required terminated in a double pole switch at the lower level. Control was specified via a hold to run handle close to this supply point.

The MezzLight Handloaded model is now a standard brochure product and is a popular addition to the Penny Hydraulics Goods Lifts range.
