The SLS pro (SäulenLiftSystem für proprofessionelle Anwendungen = column lift system fpr professional applications) is a material lift system acc. Europ. Machinery Directive 2006/42 / EG & EN 81-31 Accessible goods only lifts. It is delivered by us, when assembled by our factory fitters, with a CE marking and certificate of conformity.
The SLS pro does not fall under the elevator regulation.
SLS pro lifts may not be accessible to the public and may only be operated by instructed persons.
An SLS pro - lift is not a means of passenger transport (elevator)! Any ride on the conveyor cage by people is strictly prohibited. The device is used exclusively for unattended material transport from one level to another.
The following system configurations result depending on the installation situation:
Freestanding lift in front of a shelf storage platform, wall with storey door openings or similar. (so-called installation in "airspace"):
The SLS pro - Lift is completely enclosed on the bottom floor with a machine guard up to a height of 2500 mm. The storey door (s) is / are also equipped with a machine protective grille and is 2500 mm high. The storey doors are always provided with a so-called "interlock" (= machine-electric safety lock), door opening button and lift control point.
The upper floors are provided with identical storey doors including a lift control point. In the case of a mezzanine with an open front adjacent to the lift system, a 1000 mm wide and 2500 mm high fixed machine guard must also be provided on the right and left of the storey door as protection against the running lift system.
In the case of lift systems with a “pass-through conveyor cage”, the conveyor cage door facing the air space on each floor where there is an air space situation must be secured against unintentional opening by an additional barrier.
Lift system integrated into a shelf storage platform, running through openings in the ceiling:
Such systems must always be completely enclosed on all levels (2500 mm high per floor for both the storey doors and the fixed machine safety grille), as there is no complete view from any control station.
Due to country-specific safety regulations, all lift solutions proposed by us must generally be checked in advance by the customer's safety officer for feasibility.
