Three Level Vertical Material Lift made by Custom Industrial Products, Inc.

Find the Right Lift for You

 Freight Elevators, Material Lifts, & VRCs

What is the difference?

Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors, also known as VRCs are specifically exempted from the national elevator codes and are instead guided by the ASME B20.1 Safety Standards for Conveyors and Related Equipment.  However, in common terms, most people will refer to these as material lifts, freight lifts, industrial lifts, freight elevators or dumbwaiters.  Visit the Knowledge Base for more differences.

Although often called material lifts or freight elevators, vertical reciprocating conveyor is the accurate name for this entire class of products.
