The first expansion stage of the modular system is the ESL, or “one-column lift”.
The name says it all: the ESL is a lift system with 1 lifting column on which a conveyor cage rises. The ESL has a standard payload of 500 kg (other payloads on request) and can be designed for lifting heights from 3 m to 12 m.

The standard version of the conveyor cage has internal dimensions of 1.000 mm x 1.600 mm (external dimensions 1.100 mm x 1.700 mm) and thus offers space for a Euro pallet including a lift truck. It is equipped with a flat floor (only 15 mm thick with an approach slope on the loading side of the lowest floor), which enables easy access and thus avoids a floor recess on the ground floor. The cage enclosure is 1100 mm high with a filling made of sturdy welded mesh, fixed on three sides as standard with a single-wing ejection door optionally on one of the two short cage sides. The basket door is of course connected to the lift control with limit switch protection.

As a standard, the ESL is completely enclosed as a self-running lift system. On each floor, it has the corresponding floor doors as well as all the necessary fixed enclosures made of machine safety grids. The storey doors are integrated into the system via an electric safety lock and can only be opened when the conveyor cage is in front of it.

An extensive range of accessories enables you to have a lift system perfectly tailored to your needs!

Extract from our range of accessories:

  • other basket sizes;
  • additional or differently arranged conveyor basket doors (single-leaf or double-leaf);
  • special basket openings;
  • increase in the support basket guard;
  • a large variety of floor doors with other opening types (sliding doors, roller doors, high-speed roller doors) to match the conveyor basket doors;
  • Increased lifting speed (8,4 m / min.) With soft start / soft stop;
  • additional optical signaling via rotating beacon;

and much more…
