Are you thinking of including a vehicle lift in your building? Keep reading this article and you will discover the benefits that this type of lift can offer you to improve vehicle access. What is a car lift?
A vehicle lift or garage lift is a lift system that is powerful enough to move a car vertically, for example, between one or more levels in a car park. Its operation is similar to that of a conventional lift.
It is a hydraulic system that allows cars and their occupants to be moved vertically. In addition, it has several elements that guarantee the efficiency of the whole process is carried out correctly.
These elevator systems can be located in any building, that is, from single-family homes to public car parks, hotels, companies, buildings with few homes... And in which the construction of a garage must be foreseen.
The most frequent uses of car lifts are in car dealerships and garages, as this is where the space is best used and where a greater number of vehicles can be located.
There are many reasons why it is convenient to opt for the installation of a vehicle lift. For this reason, we are going to mention some of them below, so that you can dispel any doubts that may arise when making the investment.
It is a very safe mechanism that will only work if the vehicle's doors are properly closed. In addition, it is perfectly prepared for any emergency, as if something happens, such as an electrical failure, the platform will lower and open its doors completely automatically.
It should be noted that they have alarm buttons and intercoms to facilitate communication with the outside world in the event of being trapped in the cabin due to a breakdown, and evacuation hatches to allow people to leave the cubicle.
Installation is quick and easy, so you will not have to wait long to use it, i.e., you will be able to have the service in a short time from the moment the need arises.
It does not take up much space, as it is not necessary to have a machine room as they are hydraulic platforms. In addition, its pit and escape have reduced dimensions.
Also, when it is used, it does not generate a lot of noise. Therefore, it will not cause much noise nuisance to people in close proximity.
It is very efficient, so it does not consume a lot of energy. This means that your electricity bill will not be very high and, in addition, it allows you to contribute to the environment.
The maintenance of this type of system is not very costly, as it does not need constant revisions as conventional lifts do.
Finally, it supports a lot of weight. In the case of the vehicle lifts that we offer in Hidral, the ECH model is able to support from 2.000 to 3.500 kg and the QHV from 3.500 to 5.000 kg.
When there is no possibility for the car to enter or leave, it is normal to wonder whether the car park could be obstructed by a breakdown.
In these cases, the risk of this happening is almost nil, as in these systems, two central units are installed which are connected to each other and, in the event of a failure of the central drive unit, it would automatically start up to ensure the system operates normally.
These advantages are some of the many that a vehicle lift can offer you and among them, without a doubt, the great functionality it provides is the most important. Therefore, it would be appropriate to dedicate enough time to choose the model that best suits you based on your interests.
For this reason, in Hidral we offer you two models of vehicle lifts (QHV and ECH), which are particularly designed not only for the vertical transport of vehicles, but also for their occupants.
Both are perfect for making the most of those places where space options are somewhat more limited. In addition, these systems are equipped with the most advanced technology in safety measures to ensure the best experience for everyone who uses them.
