Passenger Elevator vs. AJAY VRC Lift

    Compared to passenger hydraulic elevators, the AJAY VRC lift is far less costly and more practical for self-storage facilities. See for yourself, here are just some of the factual comparisons against the two types of lifts.
Passenger Elevator
 
AJAY VRC Lift
vs.


Passenger Elevator
Very Expensive Permits

In order to install a passenger elevator for the storage industry expensive permits must be purchased.

 

AJAY VRC Lift
Inexpensive Permits

AJAY's VRC Lifts carry cargo only, this dramatically decreases the danger and liability thus the permits required are dramatically less expensive than a passenger elevator permit.

Energy Efficient

Passenger elevators consume considerably more electrical energy. Up to 150 amps for a passenger elevator vs. 30 amps for an AJAY VRC Lift. This makes an AJAY VRC Storage Lift up to 80% more energy efficient.



Passenger Elevator
Only New Facilities

It is nearly impossible to consider an installation of a passenger elevator after your building has been built.

AJAY VRC Lift
New or Existing Facility

An AJAY VRC Storage Lift can be easily retrofitted into a new or existing facility.


Passenger Elevator
Requires Building Support

Passenger elevators have expensive structural building requirements that must be supplied for stringent installation needs. Most passenger elevators require “load bearing” concrete structural supporting walls.

AJAY VRC Lift
Free Standing

AJAY lifts are free-standing “exclusive truss design” masts which require no structural requirements for support. There are no requirements to build “load bearing” concrete structural supporting walls. The installation into new or existing facilities is quick and easy.


Passenger Elevator
Requires Deep Concrete Pit

Passenger elevators usually require a deep pit (3 to 10 feet deep) in order to install buffer springs and other equipment at the bottom of the shaftway.

AJAY VRC Lift
5 1/2 Inch Concrete Pit

AJAY lifts only require a 5 1/2 inch deep pit.



Passenger Elevator
Requires Penthouse

Passenger elevators require the installation of a large raised “penthouse” on the roof for routine service or maintenance issues, adding to the cost of the lift.

AJAY VRC Lift
Simple Installation

AJAY lifts are specifically designed in a way to fit inside any standard two or three story building with no major structural modifications to the building.


Passenger Elevator
Requires Deep Hole for Cylinder

A deep hole must be excavated under the elevator car in order to install the cylinder. Some elevators must now also have an EPA approved sump pump recovery system, adding to the cost of the lift.

AJAY VRC Lift
Simple, Reliable Cylinder

With an AJAY VRC Lift there is no need to excavate a deep hole into the ground to install a caisson for the hydraulics. Our single acting cylinder is attatched to the mast to eliminate such inconveniences.



Passenger Elevator
Large Electical Panel Installation

Passenger elevators use 100 to 150 amp 3 phase electrical service.

AJAY VRC Lift
Small Electrical Panel Installation

Our VRC lifts require only a standard 30 amp single or three phase electrical service.
