Having previous experience working with Autoquip in the past, our dealer Binghamton Material Handling, Inc, contacted us regarding a project for their aerospace customer who was looking to move materials between their main floor and mezzanine. The solution required a very precise fit within their floor-space between the stairs and the floor drains. In addition, any electrical devices had to be raised 18” from the main floor to avoid any potential high-water mark out of safety concerns
The Autoquip Solution
By working closely with Binghamton Material Handling and their customer, we were able to determine the exact measurements to custom build a 4 Post Mechanical VRC. We worked closely with them in the design process and approvals to ensure our VRC design would fit properly. We took special concern to move the lower level limit switches that are usually located near the floor to a higher position within the structure. The VRC was erected by the stairs and positioned away from the drains.
