Freight elevators are used to unload and transport materials or goods from one floor to another. Their carrying weight can vary from 2000 to 4500 kg. In most cases, their power source is an electric engine.
Freight elevators only carry elevator operators or forklift operators because they are designed with different safety equipment than passenger elevators. When the elevator is carrying passengers, the elevator doors and related equipment will be modified to ensure a higher level of safety. The freight elevator has a freight door that opens vertically. Many older freight elevators have wooden doors that open manually. These types of elevators can be designed to lift over 20,000 pounds for special purposes. TITANSUHE lifting equipment factory can design freight elevators to accommodate all speeds and capacities required by the building.
