PFlow VRCs are built with a substantial safety factor, but inadvertent overload can result in dangerous, unintentional carriage descent. Mechanical VRCs depend upon spring-set brakes to maintain the carriage position. These brakes are sized to provide a minimum of 150% of maximum load capacity; however, wear and lack of brake maintenance can reduce that capacity. Overload of the carriage can cause brake slippage. PFlow DeckLock system provides additional safety under these conditions.
