VRC Carriage Options

Carriage Options For Mezzanine Material Lifts

Carriage Guarding

The ANSI/ASME b-20.1 code requires that the VRC carriage be guarded to prevent injury from inadvertent physical contact. This guarding provides protection from material falling or items protruding from the VRC carriage.

Your basic VRC carriage has 42" high pipe rails on the non-operating side(s) and snap chain(s) across the operating (loading/unloading) end(s). The floor of the VRC carriage is typically painted steel plate, either smooth or diamond tread to prevent slippage.

  • Flattened expanded metal carriage side guards (48", 60", 72", or full carriage height)
  • Galvanized tread plate carriage side guards (48", or full carriage height)
