How does a VRC work?
Our industrial freight elevators offer solutions for many industries. They are used primarily in warehouse spaces with Mezzanines that can access more vertical storage options. There are many vertical lift conveyors, aka VRC equipment types. The two basic types are electric and hydraulic. Different configurations of the pole’s physical properties support the platform’s structure. Depending on your application, there’s usually a good reason to choose a hydraulic versus an electric lift. The following factors need to be considered:
- The capacity of available vertical storage
- Configuration of upper levels
- The beams being used to support the VRC
- Loading and unloading patterns in the warehouse
Our primary VRC provider is Wildeck, which offers both options. The Design Group has installed a variety of VRCs for companies, from printing companies to grocery stores. To learn more about which system would be best for you, check out this video by Wildeck.
