Dual cables are one of our most important features. A single 1/4" stainless steel cable has a breaking strength of 6400lbs. For added security we use two. Furthermore we protect these cables from damage by using a grooved cable winder. Cables can be their own worst enemies when they are free to double wrap. Top layers of cables become cutting edges for lower layers causing premature failure. Our cable winders ensure the cables always wind in a single layer.
In addition to using dual cables we also use a slack cable brake. The brake is spring loaded and connects directly to the cables. If cable tension is interrupted due to a failure the brake instantly responds and prevents the car from falling. This feature would also prevent the car from falling due to a gearbox issue.
Our dual mast is also important. Cargo lifts with a single mast tend to use the mast as a pivot point rather than a guide. By using two masts we eliminate sway, making the carriage very stable.
The Veranda vator uses digital controls for starting and stopping. This feature allow us to make precise stops every time. Also there are no externally mounted switches which are vulnerable to impact and weather damage.
The Veranda 'vator cargo lift is fast. We understand that 5 to 6 minutes time for a full cycle can add up. Especially when you have multiple packages to transport. Travel from ground level to second floor takes less than a minute for most installations.
