Specifically designed for alignment
The cheapest way to produce an alignment lift is to take a flat platform lift and simply ‘build it up’. This is what many manufacturers do, and is certainly a feature of Chinese lifts. So instead of producing a platform with the recesses for the turnplates and slip plates built in, they are instead placed on top and the gaps then filled in. The downside of this is that you have an unnecessarily high lift when it is in its lowered position, and this causes problems with even the most common vehicles, let alone those with a low ground clearance. The only solution is to have extra-ordinarily long run-up ramps, which are impractical and space consuming. All of the Cascos alignment lifts are designed and manufactured specifically for alignment and therefore offer the lowest minimum height, shortest run-up ramp and minimum space consumption.
Our platforms are reinforced by hot rolled profiles (a bit like an RSJ). This avoids any deformation and bears the weight better, keeping the platform totally flat/straight over the lifetime of the lift.
Peace of mind security systems
Cascos use a double mechanical safety system (security ladders and safety bars) coupled with a pneumatic security system, providing far better reliability than electromagnetic devices used on budget lifts.
