Types of cranes
Typically, lift service refers to: passenger, passenger-freight and freight lifts, as well as construction, theatre, hospital and special lifts. Based on the drive, they can be divided into electric and hydraulic lifts. Hydraulic ones have a drive using a pump, while electric ones operate thanks to a hoist set in motion by a motor.
Authorisations are granted by the Office of Technical Inspection for the following types of cranes:
- construction cranes,
- hospital cranes,
- freight and handling with internal controls.
Cranes construction can be found on construction sites. They are used for the vertical transport of heavy construction materials on a platform that moves along vertical and sometimes slightly inclined guides.
Cranes personal are designed to enable the vertical transportation of people to higher floors in a special cabin that moves in line with rigid vertical guides.
Freight do not carry passengers in the cab and only serve specific stop levels. They are constructed in such a way that they would not accommodate anything other than a vertically transported load. Some goods lifts are lifts without the right for people to enter the cabin. The reason for this is to ensure hygiene in the food handling industry. They are also used in the construction industry and in commerce.
Lifts freight and passengers is used to move goods including those responsible for loading and unloading.
Cranes hospital are used to transport hospital beds and medical equipment and people. They have features to accommodate priority driving.
A piece of equipment intended for use on a construction site must have a valid operating permit in order to be used legally. Such a certificate is issued by the Office of Technical Inspection. In order to obtain it, a written application for a technical examination must be submitted. This is a temporary permit that must be renewed. It is therefore advisable to keep a conscientious record of all repairs to the crane, as well as any maintenance activities.
