Its 16:1 gear ratio drive allows access to be a virtually effortless with a simply turn of the ergonomically designed handle.

This system can also be used as simply as a matter of preference. The overall weight capacity is 900 lbs. per linear foot of carriage. The recommended maximum system length is 24’; applications beyond this length should be approved by Pipp. Shelving options include Four-Post, Tab, Wire, Rivet Style Shelving, Light and Heavy Duty Pallet Rack and Bulk Rack. This system is available with Flat Track which is ADA Compliant. The anti-tip options are In-Track Anti-Tip, Z-Rail Anti-Tip and Overhead Anti-Tip Systems.
