A powerful combination of advanced technology, superior ride quality, versatility and stability mean the FOVF heavy duty lift is in its element across demanding factories and warehouses.

Introducing the FOVF freight lift

Naturally our FOVF system delivers effortlessly when it comes to serious cargo tasks, but it also delivers failsafe reliability and good value too. Combining proven strengths and the latest technology, the FOVF series freight lift takes all kinds of challenging environments in its stride, from factories and warehouses to vehicle transportation. As you would expect, the design conforms with the EN81 code and fully complies with our own demanding safety standard, WWJSSS. ‘Safety First’ is not just an idea; it’s built in to everything we do.

The high performance space saver

Maximising floor space without compromising capability

Durable, energy efficient technology, speed and power combine in our FOVF freight lift to offer you one of the most sustainable choices available. Designed to create space for your architect’s ideas and minimise disruption during fitting, our expert team can install the FOVF freight lift quickly and safely.

  • Powerful Traction with ease

    The traction machine is tough and designed to meet your heavy duty vertical transportation needs. All kinds of freight loads can be shifted with ease. At the heart of the FOVF system, you’ll find our microprocessor based VVVF control system – in other words, a perfect combination of heavy duty traction machine and variable-frequency control technology.

  • Smooth running

    Our VVVF closed loop control and communication technology delivers outstanding cargo shifting performance and smooth operation.

  • High Leveling Accuracy

    Our control system delivers specially optimised motion performance, which means smooth movement and gentle starting and stopping. Extremely high levelling accuracy of +/- 5mm is made possible by advanced sensor devices at every floor.

Built to last

Freight doors are provided with special cast iron sills that are designed to support trucking loads equal to the capacity of the lift. Doors and gates feature approved interlocks so that your lift cannot be used unless both doors and gate are securely closed and locked. Within the door there is a glass vision panel, complete with safety astragal bar, while power gates are equipped with an automatic reversing edge, providing another layer of no-compromise safety. Non-skid diamond pattern flooring is sturdy enough to support heavy loads and also prevents slipping.

Safety beyond question

Since we invented the Otis safety brake, unsurpassed safety has been at the core of everything we do. It’s one of the building blocks of the Otis brand. So, you won’t be surprised to learn that we have gone beyond the accepted safety code standards and created our own set of more demanding guidelines: the Otis Worldwide E3 policy. Each component and design element in your Arise elevator will have passed a whole spectrum of performance, safety and durability testing that includes more than 50 critical safety tests. And we never stop. We’re constantly exploring and refining new methods to ensure that our name is a byword for ultimate safety around the world.
