Freight Lifts or VRC'S

Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors (VRC'S) also known as Freight Lifts are a safe, efficient, and affordable way to move materials from one level to another. VRC's are commonly used in tandem with mezzanines to move inventory from the first level to the second. Freight Lifts are commonly replacing forklift gates to eliminate unnecessary risk. VRC's are all customized to meet customers specific applications. Capable of lifting up to 100,000 lbs. if necessary. The Vertical Conveyors are available in hydraulic and mechanical systems. VRC's are not elevators and are not able to transport people making them much more affordable than an elevator. They have their own national code (ASME B20.1) and are specifically exempt from the National Elevator Code.
