Elevators installed with more than 4 inches of “gap space” between the hoistway doors and the elevator car doors can pose a serious safety risk. Children may become entrapped in the space and could be seriously injured or killed. This risk can be reduced with the proper installation of space guards at each floor.

Material Lifts

Material LiftWhen you need to move cargo between floors, you need to be able to count on strength and reliability. A material lift installation from Preferred Elevator can provide you with that peace of mind. A commercial material lift can be an excellent addition to your business or multiple unit residential building, to significantly reduce the work involved in moving whatever needs to be moved across multiple levels. Safety always comes first, and material lifts are designed and equipped to carry a wide range of materials, from lighter items like cleaning supplies to heavier cargo items like manufacturing materials. Keep your staff safe, and help to keep them productive with this back-saving, time-saving technology. Using less energy and less space than a passenger elevator, our material lifts are as efficient as they are sturdy with commercial grade construction throughout. And, with options for stainless steel or primed finishes, you’ll not have to sacrifice appearance.

If you work in an environment that requires strict separation of materials, such as hospitals, medical facilities, laboratory settings, and other places that handle potentially hazardous materials, you know the challenges of moving these items safely and correctly. A material lift from Preferred Elevator helps you move these hazardous materials within regulatory guidelines. If you work in the hospitality industry where time is of the essence, like in restaurants or hotels, you want to be able to move essential items quickly without burdening your guests. Keep the dinnerware and linens out of the way, and get them where they need to go quickly.

As you’re deciding which size and model material lift might be right for you, it’s important to take its purpose into consideration.
