SHERPA Goods Only Lift – with no pit requirement

Efficient vertical transport of your goods

The SHERPA goods only lift  is our real all-rounder. It is an efficient and simple to plan solution for vertical transportation of goods in an industrial environment.

In its standard configuration, the SHERPA has a load capacity of up to 4,500 kilograms and a lifting height of up to 18 meters (with two to six stopping points). The lift is delivered as a free-standing structure with sheet metal cladding. The required pit depth is very small and can be altogether avoided by choosing the ramp option. No building modifications are required. The lift can be easily integrated into existing building and rack systems. Thus, the installation is fast and easy.

This goods only lift is a tailor-made lift. We work closely with our customers, extend our flexibility to design and offer fully customized cabin sizes.

As the name "goods only lift" indicates, the SHERPA is the solution which enables transportation of goods only. If it is necessary to assist the goods, the ESCORTA goods lift is a great alternative. Contact us for more information!

Move more, do more.

Improve business productivity by moving more, in less time.

The SHERPA can now move up to 4.5 tonnes which reduces unloading time and increases throughput. It is now possible to reach similar lifting capacities as a hydraulic lift with all of the space saving benefits of the SHERPA. No pit, no machine room, a selfsupporting steel frame shaft and much shorter installation times all resulting in a smaller overall project cost.

Medicine, clean linen and food are delivered daily. A centrally located passenger lift or bed lift is often not sufficient. Since the delivery is almost always at the back of the building, a goods lift is needed for optimal logistics. With a load capacity of up to 3,000 kg, the goods only lift SHERPA is a cost-effective and efficient solution.
