Material Lift/ VRC Lift –A perfect Match for your Structural Steel Mezzanine

Move up to the next level with a material lift. Mezzanines by design is your premiere vertical material lifts and vertical reciprocating conveyor(VRC) manufacturer. Vertical Material Lifts, often called VRC’s (vertical reciprocating conveyor), are a safe and reliable way to transfer material from one level to the next on your mezzanine or platform. Vertical Material Lifts are a cost effective alternative to higher priced freight elevators. Since these lifts are not elevators and transport material only, elevator safety codes do not apply to this line of products.

With platforms ranging from 36 x 36 inches to over 30 x 30 feet and travel heights to over 100 feet, our team can design and manufacture the best lift for your specific needs. We understand that every application is unique and that is why we design & engineer every pertinent detail from the material being moved to the environment of the job site.
