The goods lifts were specified to carry up to four full pallets weighing a maximum of 2000kg in total between the ground floor and the mezzanine levels. The lifts, which measure 2600mm wide x 2460mm deep x 2200mm high, have wooden wear strips, light curtains and PIR sensors that detect movement inside theM to optimise safe operation. No pit or other civil engineering work was required, so installation was quick and involved minimal disruption.
The conveyor system was designed to carry cardboard cartons and plastic tote boxes in various sizes and weights up to 25kg from the loading bays to the storage racking.
