Four Post (FP) Series Material Lifts
Propel Your Profits With the Heavy Hitting Four Post (FP) Series
Are you lifting very large, bulky, or just plain massive loads that are 10,000 pounds or more?
Is your forklift just not capable of safely and efficiently handling your lifting load?
Do you need to lift a car, truck, SUV or other type of vehicle from one level to another?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, the Four Post (FP) Series is the perfect lift for you!
Custom Industrial Product’s Four Post series (FP Series) material lifts provide the ultimate solution to lift large, very heavy, and/or bulky loads. They can be configured as a ”C”, “Z” and/or “90 degree” load pattern with the flexibility to load /unload on any side of the platform.
The FP Series industrial lift is often used as a vehicle lift because of the large platform sizes and massive weight carrying capacity which far exceed most fork lifts. A standard CIP freight elevator in this series can move up to 30,000 pounds on a 12’ X 12’ platform and custom units can carry even more in larger size carriages.
30,000 lbs capacity, pit mounted, two-stop Four Post Series lift with vertical acting door open on the lower level shown in a “Z” configuration.
30,000 Lbs Lifting Capacity
Vertical Travel up to 60 Feet
Platform sizes up to 30' x 30'
Speeds up to 25 feet per minute
From very large platform sizes, to very high travel heights and the massive weight capacities available, the CIP Four Post Series is the Heavyweight Champion in our industrial lift family. The unique design also allows for “C”, “Z” or “90°” load and unload configurations.
High Speed Doors Available
CIP understands that speed and efficiency are critical to maximizing your throughput and bottom line, and that’s why we developed our unique high speed doors to access the lift. You still get all the same safety features of our electro-mechanical interlocks with the added benefit very rapid opening and closing of access to the lift. This is not your standard overhead door here. Ask your CIP specialist for more information.
Dual Drive Header
The all-mechanical, quad cable lifting system utilized by the FP series ensures even and level lifting. The two motors work simultaneously to ensure your platform does not have any teetering to one side or another; thus increasing your safety and reliability. The welded steel tube frame provides the stability needed to ensure high quality and reliable performance for years into the future.

Why is the Four Post Series the right lift for me?
CIP’s Four Post Series is the heavyweight champion! These industrial lift utilizes two (2) 100% duty-cycle brake motors mounted at the top of the unit. The low noise all-mechanical dual-drive system, featuring the 10 year limited warranty on the motor and reduction gear, safely transports the carriage and the load with ease by means of four (4) wire rope lifting cables.
All CIP cable operated lifts (aka freight elevators) are equipped with broken cable brakes to prevent the carriage from falling in the unlikely event of a cable failure. Mechanical interlocks prevent doors from being opened when the carriage is not present at that level. Dual electric brake motors secure the carriage in the event of a power failure and prevents the platform from drifting.
Standard units have expanded metal platform side panels on all on operating sides and a snap chain across the access sides. Operation is controlled by an Illuminated Call/Send Station mounted next to each door at each level. Each station is also equipped with a large E-Stop button to stop the unit in an emergency.
Guarding around the lift is required to meet ASME B20.1 safety codes. CIP offers metal enclosure panels and gates to meet your application’s requirements. Different options are available for shaft installations. Safety enclosures are built into the structure adding rigidity and enhanced security. These enclosures are manufactured from angle for the framing and covered with 1/2″ expanded metal to reject a 2″ diameter ball as required by code.
