A construction elevator or rack and pinion, plays an important role in any industrial construction project. These temporary devices will allow you to safely transport people and materials from the ground to upper floors in order to complete more complicated projects on time and on budget. The right construction elevator can increase productivity and provide an efficient solution that makes it easy to handle heavy duty loads on industrial sites. If you are looking to install a construction elevator, learn more about the various advantages of using these machines and what you will need to do to prepare your site.
Construction sites are full of activity, equipment and personnel, but on the day of your elevator installation, you will have to clear some room. The components will be delivered on a flatbed truck, so there will have to be enough room to safely unload all the necessary parts. In addition, there will need to be space for the crane to easily maneuver and go to work installing the track and steel supports. Be sure that all debris, even smaller pieces of materials and tools, have been removed from the area in order to ensure a smooth and safe installation process.
A concrete pad should also be installed and ready to receive the steel base. The size of the pad will depend on the size of your construction elevator. This detail can be clarified when your purchase your elevator so that you know exactly how to prepare your site.
Finally, an ample power source should be installed nearby and ready to supply the elevator with the necessary electricity. Again, the amount of power required will depend on the size and model of construction elevator you are installing.
Once the elevator has been installed, additional trailers will remove the hoist equipment and you will be ready to connect your elevator to the power source and start vertically transporting people and materials.
