Underfloor LiftsUnderfloor Lifts from Nani are special Freight Lifts and serve the transport of goods, garbage containers, etc. between two floors, eg from the ground floor to the upper floor. This usually involves the transport from a delivery zone to the cellar, or goods which are, for example, for disposal from the ground floor to the exterior level. The transport of persons is not permitted on a regular basis. Compared to Cable Elevator, an Underfloor Lift in the form of a Scissor Lifting Tables or Column Lifting Tables is much more cost-effective and more economical.
The Underfloor Lifts always has a roof or cover (canopy), which is placed on the Lifting Table Plateau. When the lift is raised, this cover is being lift up and releases the lift-cage in the upper position for loading. At the lower stop, the shaft is closed by means of a safety revolving door, which can only be opened when the lifting table is lowered. As a covering of the canopy you can also freely choose: lawns, cobblestone, tiles, asphalt, concrete, metal, …
Column Lift Tables as Underfloor LiftsTechnical Drawing – Column Lift Table SHT05
If garbage container elevators or other lifting devices for garbage cans are to be installed in existing properties, it is very often necessary to install an underfloor drive for the scissor lift system. In this case, a simplified solution is to use a column Lift table with canopy as a kind of underfloor elevator. This is distinguished, among other things, by the fact that it has a very low overall height of 100-150mm. The canopy closes the shaft, and fall protection must be provided regularly at the top around the shaft head. Switch-off strips and, if necessary, light grids secure possible shear edges. The lifting mast functions here in a concept familiar from materials handling technology, namely as with forklift poles
