Stertil lifts help Topview Sightseeing London 24 November 2023

Stertil Koni Topview Sightseeing London

Stertil Koni has installed two sets of wireless column lifts with a lifting capacity of 7.5 tonnes at the new Wimbledon workshops of Topview Sightseeing London.

Topview Sightseeing provides sightseeing opportunities for tourists in London and New York.

When used as a set of four, the combined capacity of the lifts is 30 tonnes. Each column incorporates Stertil’s ebright Smart Control System, which allows workshop staff to operate the columns individually, in pairs or in any other combination from any column in the set. Positioning of the wireless columns is also flexible, enabling them to be used in any configuration around a vehicle. The ebright’s wireless mesh networking system is said to eradicate any possibility of communication problems between individual columns when numerous sets are used in the same building.

The ebright Smart Control System has been developed to simplify operation by providing maximum visual information about every lifting operation. For added safety and performance, it also shows how many columns in the set are being used.

These heavy-duty lifts are powered by long-life deep cycle batteries which provide optimum performance for at least a week on average before recharging is necessary. Also, battery life is prolonged because power is only used to raise the vehicle, therefore less time is spent recharging the lift which is carried out via a 230v single phase supply. Importantly, with no cables on the workshop floor, the risk of tripping is removed.

Safety is further enhanced by an independent mechanical locking system, incorporated into each column, which allows technicians to securely lock the lift to prevent a vehicle from being inadvertently lowered.

According to Stertil, the lift’s synchronisation system ensures a smooth lifting and lowering cycle, even in the event of extremely uneven load distribution. The ST1075FWA provides a maximum lifting height of 1.85 metres which is reached in 75 seconds.
