Vancouver Material Lift Devices Don’t Just Need to Meet Safety Standards – They Need to Exceed the Standards

Here at Bramalea Elevator, your safety truly is one of our top priorities.  Whether you’re using a smaller Vancouver material lift in your own private garage, or installing one of our industrial-scale models for use in a business, you need to know that you and your property are safe on a Bramalea Elevator.


That’s why we say that it’s not enough to merely meet safety standards, such as those established by CSA B44 and provincial regulations.  We need to go further, to do everything possible to protect those who are relying on our material lifts.

Guaranteeing Safety in Vancouver Material Lifts

Elevator code stipulates that a legal, registered elevating device is required to lift material between 2 or more fixed levels when travel distance is 78” (2,000 mm) or higher.

Customers can rest assured that all Bramalea Elevator products meet all stipulations/regulations of the elevator code, but that’s just the beginning. Every install we do is accompanied by a full inspection, with the customer receiving an inspection certificate as proof that the lift is fully up to code.


In addition, we’re just as concerned about the materials and manpower used in your new material lift. All our products and equipment are certified as per the Canadian Standards Association, and our lift fabrication is handled according to Canadian Welding Bureau standards. Along with this, we hire only licensed professional engineers, and our technicians are licensed under the Elevating Devices Act. 


All are registered with the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board. We also go well beyond the standards set out in the B44 Elevator Safety Code, which was written in the 1970s specifically to cover industrial material lifts.  Among our own standards, we: Design features to allow for situations that have minimal pit depth and/or overhead space above.


Use a 2-way leveling controller, which allows the lift to readjust the level of the platform after it comes to a stop.  This provides much more consistent level accuracy, and smoother embarking/disembarking.


Utilize a 2-speed valve in our hydraulics, allowing for soft starts and stops which are gentler for riders and materials. Have an innovative system of nylon shoes guiding the sliding action of the lift cab along guide rails. 


These provide a much smoother ride with fewer maintenance issues than typical steel rollers, as well as reducing noise!
