are basically two types of mobile systems on the market today,
mechanical and electric. The only real difference between the two is
the method by which the carriages are set in motion. All
manufacturers are limited to the same basic systems.
Although both systems operate on the same
principle, a mechanical system is one
in which the user provides the power to drive the carriages via side
mounted rotating handles. Across the industry, these handles have
slightly different designs, but they all do the same job: through a
system of gears, they transfer physical effort into movement of the
Mechanical systems are the most cost effective
as they perform their duties without the aid of additional
electrical motors. They work very well in all but the most demanding
environments. For a more complete description of our mechanical
systems, please click here.
Electrical systems require just that,
electricity, to power the motors that drive the carriages. Through a
simple push of a button, massive amounts of weight can be set in
motion. Computer based security system can be integrated with the
drive system to provide totally automated detection, safety, and
Although a little more expensive than mechanical
systems, electrical systems provide the utmost in convenience,
performance, and safety for discerning users.
