If your data center employees are still handling heavy servers, power supplies, and switches by hand, without the use of a proper data center lift, you place your company at risk for equipment accidents, employee injuries, and even lawsuits.

Purpose built data center lift have taken the physical challenge and risk out of handling even the heaviest servers. Having one in your data center is a must – it will prevent costly accidents and save money by increasing operational efficiency.

There is only one company whose products perform all 3 of the essential functions a data center data center lift must be able to do:

  1. Transporting servers around the facility
  2. Positioning equipment where it needs to be
  3. Assistance with installing or removal of servers

At the very least, you really don’t want your data center team physically lifting heavy and expensive equipment; that’s just asking for trouble – in the form of injuries and equipment damage.

But, if you have decided to invest in a lift for your servers and other equipment, you’ll want the one and only data center lift – engineered and manufactured to be the most rugged, accurate, and convenient lift you can buy.
