MODEL: Modular Box Lift VRC

A Wildeck® Mechanical Modular Box Lift is designed to quickly move parts, totes, boxes or carriers to another level, such as a mezzanine, storage rack or deck.  It is designed to eliminate multiple trips up and down stairs, accomplished with the push of a button.

The stackable, self-contained modular design exemplifies and assists shipping and assembly areas.  Interlocking gates, call/send control stations, and safety enclosures are preassembled and prewired at the factory to reduce installation time.

Carriage Safety Options:

Wildeck VRC's have a standard carriage freefall device. Optional safety carriage locking devices are available to prevent the accidental descent of a raised carriage. When the VRC arrives at an upper level stop, the system locks the carriage enclosure either through automatic (SafeLock™) or manual (DeckStop™) means. 

  • SafeLock™: Automatic; failsafe, the carriage locks automatically when arriving at the
    designated level.
  • DeckStop™: Manual; simple, and reliable. Locking arms provide a highly visible barrier at the loading area.

Additional Safety Options Include:

  • CargoLok™ Carriage Gate— Encloses and secures large rolling loads
  • ArmorCar™ Carriage — A fully-enclosed VRC carriage for additional freight safeguarding
    Heavy Duty Landing Level Gates – Used for heavy duty applications or applications prone to impact during load
