Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors (VRC)

Matot VRC's are the cost effective solution to provide productive access to all levels in a building

VRC’s follow the ASME B.20.1 Code, therefore there are far less restrictions for this product than material lifts and dumbwaiters as they do not pierce fire rated floors.  They are typically used in industrial settings but do have commercial applications. Similar to material lifts, they are larger than dumbwaiters and almost always floor loading.  Matot Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors transport goods to mezzanines, basements, balconies or between floors of a multi-story building.  They can interface with material handling systems as well.  All levels of a plant or warehouse can be utilized for increased production and storage while a minimal of floor space is needed for a VRC.
