Stannah ups passenger parking in major UK rail stations

To help manage rising levels of rail passenger traffic, the Major Projects team of Stannah Lift Services has been commissioned to install two 16-person, 6-stop, traction-drive passenger/goods lifts in each of the brand new multi-storey car parks serving Birmingham International, Rugby, Preston and Luton rail stations.

The installations at Birmingham International multi-storey car park were completed to
budget and schedule and have been in operation since the car park opened in September 2009. The extra 835 parking spaces ranged over six storeys have brought the total spaces available to 2,225. This project has been closely followed by Rugby and Preston, with Preston showcasing two hydraulic-drive models to cater for this car park’s particular headroom considerations. Luton is scheduled for completion in October 2010.

Serving one of the busiest airports in the UK, and the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham International station’s multi-storey car park now features two Stannah passenger lifts that will enable all members of the public, including those with compromised mobility, to access all its six-storeys, and the station, safely and easily.

Combilift Launches Two New Products

The global leader in the long load handling market, Combilift Ltd, recently added two new innovative products to its wide portfolio of 4-way forklifts. Having successfully launched its smallest truck, the 2.5t capacity counterbalance design Combi-CB in 2008, Combilift has broken another size barrier with the launch of the largest Combilift to be produced at its manufacturing facility in Monaghan. With a lift capacity of 25 tonnes, the C25,000 model has dimensions of around 5 x 5m, three double sets of wheels, an unladen weight of 32t and a 170 HP John Deere engine.

The C25,000 was developed for Gloucestershire based BladeRoom, which supplies energy saving  factory built modular data centres to the IT sector.  The company considered other handling options for manoeuvring the finished modules, but overhead cranes would have been very costly to install and inflexible in use, and the sheer dimensions of a counterbalance truck capable of lifting the 18t units at extended load centres would have taken up too much space in the production area. BladeRoom’s CEO Paul Rogers: “Thanks to the Combilift’s flexibility to go anywhere and do anything it is the ideal machine for moving our 14m x 4.2m, 18t modules around the factory.”  

Combilift has also launched the Combilift Straddle Carrier, designed as a very cost effective container handling solution for haulage, distribution and shipping operations even with relatively low throughput levels. MD Martin McVicar explains the rationale behind the new product: “We saw a gap in the container handling market for a cost effective, very light but nevertheless extremely stable alternative to container handling forklifts, reach stackers or mobile cranes. It offers customers complete independence when it comes to moving products around a site. Savings made by not having to hire other equipment make for a very quick return on the initial capital investment.”
