Improved Safety & Productivity

Rack mounted equipment has been growing in size and weight recently contributing to more serious employee injuries and equipment damage when dropped. Container style data centers depend on RackLift to improve safety during server installations. They also enjoy the added benefit of a 400% increase in productivity.

Here’s Why

Racklift Server Lift

Without RackLift, heavy servers are laboriously stripped of power supplies, fans, modules and anything that can be unscrewed and unplugged in an effort to make them lighter. Three or four technicians lift the device and hold it in place while another fastens it to the rack. This is followed by the reinstallation and connection of all the previously removed components. This time-consuming, labor-intensive task can be accomplished in half the time with a single technician installing a fully assembled device.

How It Works

Three simple steps:

Step 1

Place the equipment to be installed on the RackLift platen


Step 2

Crank the winch to raise the load to the required level


Step 3

Slide it up to 24 inches into the rack for mounting


RackLift utilizes important safety features to help protect users and equipment. The safety winch utilizes an auto break system which locks instantly when the user releases the handle. RackLift is equipped with four ratchet straps to fasten RackLift to the rack housing and also to secure the load during transport. Four swivel casters allow for easy rolling, cornering and even 360˚ rotation in the aisle. Two of the wheels lock to prevent movement when raising or lowering loads. Heavy duty slide rails easily extend and hold the load in the receiving rack for installation or removal.
