Frequently Asked Questions

Freight lifts (VRCs) are regulated differently from elevators designed to move people and follow their own set of codes (ASME B20.1). As VRCs move materials and not people, they can be installed in locations where it is not legal to install an elevator and, VRCs are less costly to operate and maintain than a freight elevator.
