Rotary Lift has developed a new installation method for heavy-duty in-ground lifts. The company says this new process reduces installation time, can improve environmental protection and makes it possible to install the lifts in areas that were previously unavailable due to soil or groundwater issues. It can be used for new construction and lift replacements.
Rotary Lift says its new installation method eliminates the need to pour vaults in place by using precast concrete vaults instead. These vaults are made in advance at a concrete production facility where concrete is poured into a reusable mold and cured in a controlled environment to Rotary’s specifications. The finished vaults are then delivered to the job site ready to install.
The precast solution takes less than two days per lift installation, rather than, because there is less prep work required and no curing time or rework needed. It also reduces excavation requirements and improves safety since no one needs to enter the pit at any time during construction. Precast vaults can also be installed regardless of weather. Customers can choose optional coatings for the inside and outside of their precast vaults to further protect the lifts against water, electrolysis and chemical attack.
