Böttcher's Geda 300 ZP P transport platform at its new tyre storage facility

German Opel car dealership Böttcher has built a two-storey tyre storage facility to ensure products are kept at the right pressure and temperature throughout the year.

The company installed a Geda 300 ZP P transport platform to transfer the tyres between floors. With its platform size of 1.35 m x 0.95 m, the permanently-installed lift safely transports up to 300 kg or three people. It has a lifting speed of 12 m/min and lifting height of up to 50 m.

In the Böttcher tyre store the transport platform is deployed with a lifting speed of 9 m/min and can be placed in any part of the facility.

To further increase safety along the shelf structures, a Geda landing level safety gate on the upper entry/exit points ensures the safe transfer between platform and landing.

The platform has been fitted with a loading door specifically for use in the tyre store and can be driven at ground level with a sack truck.

As with all Geda rack and pinion hoists, the 300 ZP P can also be used with the Geda Uni-Mast system.

Owner, Gerd Böttcher, said, “With such a high order volume it was simply no longer feasible to transport all the tyres manually or with a forklift. Our new Geds transport platform has made our operations faster and significantly safer. However, the biggest advantage is that we are protecting the health of our staff.”
