Wildeck has just released a new solution to material handling, and we think you are going to love it. The RiderLift is similar to a VRC in the fact that it allows you to transport material from one level to the next; however, the RiderLift also allows one trained and authorized person to travel with the goods instead of having to take the stairs. The RiderLift is the first material handling solution of its kind, creating an entirely new product category that lies between a VRC and a freight elevator. Here is a closer look at the many benefits:
Improves Material Handling Efficiency
The most obvious benefit of the RiderLift as a material lift is the amount of time it will save your company. Instead of the freight getting a quick ride while the passenger still has to take the stairs, both of them can arrive at the destination at the same time. This will not only make your operations more efficient, it can also up the capacities of your facility. And if your facility has no current material lift, this efficiency improvement goes up tenfold.
Decreases Security Risks
When your materials ride alone, there is an inherent risk involved, as the materials could become damaged along the way. With the RiderLift, someone is always with the freight.
Reduces Workplace Accidents
When your workers have to carry heavy loads up and down stairs, there is always a chance of them pulling a muscle or falling and severely injuring themselves. With a RiderLift at your facility, your workers can easily get heavy loads—the material lift has a 2,500-pound weight limit—to the mezzanine without worrying about pulling a muscle or tripping.
Helps Your Bottom Line
The RiderLift gives you the convenience of a freight elevator without the hefty price tag and intense installation process. However, the material lift is monitored under the ASME A17.1/CSA B44 Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators. You get the benefit of having a rider go along with your cargo and you don’t have to spend a fortune.
If you have a mezzanine or a multi-floor facility and you are looking for a simple way to transport cargo between levels, the RiderLift is the clear choice. By allowing an authorized user to hop on board, you can increase your efficiency while decreasing the risk of theft or injuries. This innovative material handling system is sure to bring an abundance of opportunities to your company. To learn more about this groundbreaking material lift, contact A-Lined Handling Systems today.
