Straddle (S) Series Material Lifts
Accelerate Your Productivity With the Straddle Series
Do you have a specific amount of room to work within for your material lift?
Is there a pre-existing shaftway where you will be replacing an old elevator?
Have you got materials that need an irregular size no larger than eight feet?
Are there tight doors or hallways that could present challenges to having your lift installed?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, the Straddle (S) Series is the perfect lift for you!
CIP’s S Series material handling lift is a straddle (two-post) design and is popular because of its variety of applications. It is perfect for any mezzanine, balcony, or multi-story application where safe material handling is required. The carriage platform of the S Series lift is available in many different sizes and can easily handle small, medium and large loads. Its design allows for loading and unloading from the same side (C-Configuration) or from front to rear (Z-Configuration).
Two stop, S Series, VRC with approach ramp and open midsection.
6,000 Lbs Lifting Capacity
Vertical Travel up to 40 Feet
Platform sizes from 48" x 48" up to 96" x 96"
Speeds up to 25 feet per minute
Versatility to Its Max
The S Series has a virtually unlimited number of configurations that can be made from it. It truly is our most versatile lift and is perfect for a very wide range of lifting needs. Add in the 3 ton lifting capacity available and there is more than enough oomph to handle a majority of lifting needs.
Your Enclosures or Ours
CIP Lifts are built to exceed ASME B20.1 requirements which require an enclosure to keep an operator from accessing the lift at any point in time when the carriage is not at the designated station. However, the S Series can work within your existing shaft-way, or simply from using the CIP enclosure packages.
Large Lifting and Platform Capacities
Standard Straddle Series units can go up to 6,000 lbs with heights up to 40′ and a platform up to 8′ x 8′. Special capacities and travel heights may be available on request.

Why is the Straddle Series the right lift for me?
Straddle style material handling lifts are constructed from structural steel utilizing a 100% duty-cycle brake motor mounted at the top of the unit. The low noise, all-mechanical drive system safely transports the carriage and the load with ease by means of dual lifting cables.
Our quality design provides a reliable means for moving material to a mezzanine or multiple floors/levels. These lifts require very little maintenance and have increased longevity over hydraulic lifts.
All CIP cable operated lifts 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. An electric brake motor secures the carriage in the event of a power failure and prevents the platform from drifting.
The carriage is available in two load pattern configurations: “C” & “Z”. Standard units have expanded metal platform side panels on all operating sides and a snap chain across the access side(s).
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 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.
