PLM/2P/1500/1210/B/G Double Pillar Guarded Goods Lift
This Double Pillar Guarded Goods Lift has a Safe Working Load of 1500 Kgs and a lift height of 1210mm. The lifting platform will be 1400 x 1200mm with a 1950mm clear height within the lift carriage. The base of the Guarded Goods Lift carriage will be a 12.5mm thick mild steel plate which will stop within 10mm of the Ground Floor. At this level there will be a low level ramp onto the Guarded Goods Lift so that it can be loaded using a hand pallet truck. At the upper level, there will be a landing plate to allow easy unloading. The Guarded Goods Lift will be constructed from mild steel with a powder coated finish in a colour to suit. The Guarded Goods Lift is designed to be bolted to the floor without the need for a pit. The lifting is accomplished via chains driven by a motor gearbox mounted at the top of the one column with a crossover shaft to the other column. The Guarded Goods Lift will be loaded at the front face and will exit through the rear onto the Mezzanine Floor.
Safety Guard to BS EN 14120:2015 Safety of Machinery Guards
The safety guard is constructed from 40 x 40 x 3mm box section and 3mm wire, 40mm aperture weld mesh to meet the guidelines of BS EN 14120:2015 Safety of Machinery Guards. This guard will reach to a height of 2200mm above the upper floor level, having a hinged door at each level through which the Guarded Goods Lift can be loaded and unloaded. Each door is electrically interlocked to prevent the Guarded Goods Lift being operated with a door open and in addition, the doors are mechanically locked closed whilst the guarded goods lift is running. Each door may only be opened when the lifting carriage is at the appropriate level.
Guarded Goods Lift Electrical Control
This Guarded Goods Lift is fitted with an IP65 Stainless Steel Control Panel which is mounted on the safety guard at a convenient position to give good maintenance access under the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulation 1998 (PUWER). The control panel incorporates the following controls; Up, Down, Guard Release, Emergency Stop, Cleaning Key Switch and a Reset Facility. There will be a remote Stainless Steel push button station at the upper level incorporating the following controls; Up, Down, Guard Release and Emergency Stop.
Dual Upper and Lower end of travel limit switches are positioned to prevent inadvertent adjustment or damage but are easily adjustable by trained personnel for fine adjustment on site. The machine operation is latched so that pressing the respective ‘Up’ or ‘Down’ push buttons once will raise or lower the lift to the other floor level. Each time the Lift Carriage activates the upper limit switch, an electrical actuator will be driven out underneath the lift carriage to support it while it is loaded. Before the lift can move again, the actuator will retract automatically once the down button is pressed.
Guarded Goods Lift Safe Access System
This Safe Access System will be fitted to your Guarded Goods Lift during manufacture to allow access to the inside of the safety guard at the lower level for maintenance and housekeeping. The Access System will operate as follows:-
- The lift frame must be empty, at the full up position and the safety guard gate must be closed
- At the full up position, the lift carriage is prevented from moving by a 50mm support bar driven out beneath the lift carriage using an electrical actuator
- As the bar is engaged, it will alter the state of 2 off separate safety limit switches
- The one switch will disable the machines safety circuit and relay
- The second limit switch will allow the lower safety guard door to be opened providing that the Safe Access Key Switch has been operated
- It is now safe to enter the lift enclosure with the machine disabled and the lift carriage supported
- To re-instate the machine operation, the above sequence is reversed
