After purchasing a construction lift and paying attention to the key points mentioned, it is time to install it. Proper and safe installation of construction lifts is very important and negligence in this area can lead to unforeseen accidents and loss of life and financial damage.
Therefore, we recommend that you read this installation guide thoroughly before installing the construction lift, and then set up your machine.
How to install the construction lift:
1- First, move all parts of the lift to the roof. Different parts of one construction lift include lift box or stroller (the part that electromotor, gearbox, pulley and wire rope is installed on it), rails, large bipod, small bipod, joints (bolts and jetties).
2- To install single-phase lifts, first mount the legs in reverse and at a sufficient distance. (The distance should be about 3 meters from the beginning of the first base to the end of the bottom base, the same as the length of the elevator rail.)
3- After mounting the brackets in reverse, fit the rails inside the brackets. Note that the end of the rail is facing the front of the roof and then replace and tighten the bolts.
4- After fastening the rails with bolts and tightening them, rotate the lift with a few people and return to normal. Due to the heavy weight of the material, several people have to move and rotate the pedestals and rails simultaneously.
5- After installing the lift in normal mode, it lifts the lifts to eliminate the risk of collapsing and lifting the lift altogether. In cases where lifts are to be permanently installed on the roof, it is advisable to weld the lifts to the ground to eliminate the risk of lifting or tilting the lift completely.
6- In the last neighborhood, slide the lift box into the rails and place it correctly on the rails to move on the rails. The box or stroller should move smoothly on the rails and never reach them.
7- You can close the end of the rails with a collar or rebar to eliminate the risk of the box coming off the rails to raise the confidence level of the building.
8- Once the lift is fully deployed and the base is heavy, it is time to switch to cabling to power the device's alternator. One of the most important reasons to avoid a build-up motor over time is to choose the right power cable.
Key points in choosing lift alternator cable for construction lift:
A. If the distance from the power meter or socket to the lift is about 15 meters or less, use a 2 x 2.5 cable.
B. If the distance from the power meter or socket to the lift is between 15 and 35 meters, use a 2 in 4 cable.
C. If the distance from the power meter or outlet to the lift is more than 35 meters, be sure to use a 2 in 6 cable.
Note: One of the main causes of alternator burns is the incorrect selection of the cable for the device, which causes a loss of current and serious damage to the lift motor or motor capacitors.
9- After selecting the proper cable and installing it, you need to pour it into the gearbox. Note that the capacity of the single-phase gearbox oil reservoir is about 1 liter of gear oil.
