Vertical Rail Lifter

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.
