What is a VRC?
A Vertical Reciprocating Conveyor is a lift that will move materials from one elevation to another. These vertical material lifts are a cost effective alternative to higher priced freight elevators. Since VRCs are compliant with ANSI/ASME B20.1 Safety Standards for Conveyors, elevator safety codes do not apply to this line of products.
CIP’s line of vertical lifts can be utilized to transport material and products of all shapes, sizes and weights between two or more levels. With platforms ranging from 33 x 33 inches to over 30 x 30 feet and travel heights starting at only a couple feet, traveling to over 100 feet, our team can design and manufacture the best lift for your specific needs. We understand that every application is unique and that is why we analyze every pertinent detail from the material being moved to the environment of the job site.
Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors (VRCs), commonly called freight elevators or vertical material lifts, provides transportation of material from one level to another. VRCs lift items as small as buckets to as large as cars and airplane wings and more. These lifts provide lower cost and more flexible alternatives to freight elevators and passenger elevators. Since vertical lifts are designed for the movement of material only they are not subject to elevator code but are subject to ANSI/ASME B20.1 Safety Standards for Conveyors.
