FAQ

How much do your elevating systems cost?


The cost of each of our lifts and elevators is dependent on a number of factors: cab size, weight capacity, number of entrances, travel distance, jobsite parameters (just to name a few). In order to determine an accurate price, you can contact our sales team or go to our website (www.bramaleaelevator.com) to request a free no-obligation quote. Use our planning guide to help you with the questions our sales reps will ask to help determine the right product for you.




How big (or small) are your elevators?


There are no limitations to size. Our material lifts, freight elevators and auto elevators can be as big or as small as you need them to be. There is also no limitation to the capacity. Whether you need to move a 1,000lb pallet of dry goods, or a 20,000lb fully loaded fork truck, we have a solution for it.




I see the term lift and elevator used throughout your literature. Do the two terms mean the same thing?


If you were in Britain then yes, they call elevators lifts. However in North America the two terms are different. Freight Elevator and a Material Lift (formally known as a Freight Lift) are similar in a few aspects. They both fall under the national Elevator Codes, are built for the transportation of heavy cargo, are designed to withstand tough working conditions and both allow an attendant to travel on the elevator with the goods. However, that is where the similarities end. The material lift is the economical choice if the parameters are met. Otherwise the Freight Elevator is the way to go.




Why can I buy a ‘Material Lift’ in the USA for a cheaper price?


In the USA the term ‘Material Lift’ is another name for Vertical Reciprocating Conveyor (VRC). A VRC will move products from one elevation to another, however they are not considered elevators as they transport material only. Therefore, the elevator safety codes do not apply. VRC’s have their own national code (ASME B20.1) and are specifically exempt from the national elevator code ASME A17.1. The ASME B20.1 code does not comply with the minimum safety requirements for elevating devices in Canada, thus has not been adopted by the Canadian Elevator Code CSA B44. Moral of the story,




Do I have to build or provide a hoistway shaft?


No. We have a turnkey design that is ideal for situations where a hoistway shaft cannot be provided. We will provide a steel enclosure the protect the elevator cab. The hoistway enclosure is free-standing, meaning no civil construction is required during the installation of the unit. This can save a considerable amount of time and money as no extra building modifications are required.




Do you use a buried cylinder design?


This is an environmentally friendly approach as there is no chance of oil to leech into the ground if a leak were to occur. Instead, any oil that leaks is collected in the cylinder tray mounted on the pit floor and gets recycled back into the hydraulic system.




I have a factory where production is happening around the clock. I cannot stop production, but I need a lift. Can you help?


Absolutely. We will work closely with you to determine the ideal time of day for our installers to complete their work. We offer off-hours installation. As well we are minimally invasive to our surrounding environment. All our components can be unloaded at a loading dock, or off the truck outside. They can be carried through a standard door opening, so no need to interrupt the production floor to get our material to install location. If dust, sparks or noise are a concern, we can prefabricate most of the lift at our shop, which minimizes the work to be done on site.




Can you provide a ‘waterproof’ elevator?


By waterproof, I assume you mean the ability to get wet. The answer is Yes. As an example, many of our customers use their Bramalea Elevators to move food. As per safe food practices the elevators must be washed. Thus our products can incorporate components resistant to water, such NEMA 4 rated control panels, call-stations & drain plugs. As well we can offer rust proof and easily cleanable cab finishes (such as stainless steel). If your device has an external door, we can provide measures to protect from the outside elements. Contact our sales team for more information on this and other added features Bramalea Elevator can provide.
