History of G-LiftsGMS Systems started manufacturing light duty goods hoists in the 90’s for use in the back-of-store stockrooms of clothing retailers. After a decade of producing and installing these goods hoists throughout South Africa a need was identified for larger, heavier duty goods hoists that could transfer a standard pallet and pallet jack between levels for a range of different industries. At this point our engineering team was expanded in order to develop these goods hoists and at the beginning of 2008 G-Lifts was launched.
The G-Lift is manufactured in standard sizes and its design is tailored to suit warehousing and production facilities where a brick shaft is not readily available e.g. on the side of a racking mezzanine or existing warehouse floors.
Since its inception, G-Lifts has been through several design revisions in anticipation of the new South African regulations and in order to meet the requirements of countries requiring the European or North American standards. What was a known as a “Goods Hoist” in South Africa is now referred to as a “Goods Lift” and falls under the lift and escalator set of regulatory standards.
G-Lifts are fully compliant with these regulations and has a growing reputation for the attention to detail with which they are manufactured and installed.
Safe & ReliableThe safety of operators and maintenance personnel has been a core focus and is at the centre of on-going development. The G-Lift goods lifts have been developed to meet the following safety regulations:
- EN81-31:2010 Accessible Goods Only Lifts (Europe)
- SANS1545-5:2007 Access, Goods Only Lifts (South Africa)
- ASME A17.1-2013/CSA B44-13 (Part 7) Materials Lifts (United States & Canada)
- ASME B20.1-2012 (Part 6.21) Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors (United States)
- The height of the floors to be served
- Mass and size of the load to be moved
