The Positech Vertical Rail Lifter (VRL), a lifting device, consists of a rigid vertical beam with moving rollers, which creates a stable lifting platform and eliminates swinging of a cable or chain. With 1,000 pounds of lift capacity and up to 100 inches of vertical travel, this vertical lifting device* can be used as an ergonomic lift assist for reach – in, under and around obstacles.  Use this lift assist when there is a requirement for a lot of vertical travel and the overhead clearance.
