SHERPA goods only lifts for a warehouse in Mönchengladbach

Four level goods lifts realised with no need for a pit

The customer needed a lift which would accelerate the transportation of goods up to a height of 9,5 m with 4 stops. The warehouse was newly built, but in order to facilitate any subsequent conversion of the building, civil works were not allowed to be carried out on the floor. Hence, it was necessary to find a solution which would not require a pit.

SHERPA goods lift from Lödige was a perfect answer to the customer’s needs and structural requirements. A pit can be easily replaced with a ramp and the lift is delivered as a free-standing structure. Therefore the installation was quick and easy. The customer’s requirements were fulfilled. He received a customised solution to facilitate carrying goods up to the fourth level. Additionally he did save a substantial amount of money and time.
