Freight Lift for “Dogs 4 Diabetics” Training Center
Modified Freight Lift design to transfer products to the second-level storage area of new training facility.
Dogs4Diabetics (D4D), a non-profit organization to research, train and place Medical Assistance Diabetic Alert Dogs with insulin-dependent diabetics is getting a new home. The organization has outgrown its current space, and is in the process of completing a new facility that will allow them to expand their current programs, enhance outreach, and better serve their clients. The 5,000 square foot facility includes 2-levels, the upper level will be used for storage. The customer needed a solution to transfer goods from the ground level up to the second level storage area. The lift would need to fit a small footprint within a shaftway of the new building.
To meet the building space requirements, our team of engineers modified our freight lite design to fit within the low overhead. With Autoquip’s flexibility in assembly, we prepared the lift in manageable smaller sub-assembly segments for easier install at the customer’s site. We prepared the freight lift by splicing the beams and shipped the platform separately from the mast. This will allow the customer to weld and assembly onsite in accordance with their space in the shaftway where the freight lift will be installed.
The customer will be able to safely and efficiently transfer products to the second-level storage area of their new facility. With Autoquip’s flexibility in the design and assembly process, we were able to deliver a solution that met the customer’s requirements for a freight lift fitting the exact specification needed in their shaftway.
