Safety Features

Our commitment to safety has resulted in a stronger research and development (R&D) program and more rigorous testing than any other VRC manufacturer. Each lift is designed with a variety of safety features that protect workers, materials, and machines.

All PFlow lifts with flexible lifting means include spring-loaded safety cams, over-travel, and chain tension protection. PFlow also manufactures its own safety interlocked gates and enclosure guards. The patented DeckLock Safety System, only offered by PFlow, provides added protection at critical upper levels. These features meet or exceed all code requirements.

Our VRCs are designed with the best safety features available in the industry to avoid a potentially costly or harmful accident. PFlow lifts meet OSHA regulations.
