United Kingdom



The new four-masted ALIMAK FM cargo elevator series fits on all types of industrial applications and is available both for safe areas as well as hazardeous areas. The Alimak cargo elevator series is designed to handle materials weighing up to 12,000 kilograms when required. All Alimak elevators are built to last in the most extreme environments.

The typical Alimak cargo elevator has a payload capacity of between 5,000 kg to 12,000 kg. The cargo elevator ensures easy transportation of various heavy duty goods and consignments between different levels. Loading and unloading has never been easier with crane or forklift, since the elevator floor will level with top most landing without permanent equipment above.

Well proven in the offshore industry

The new Alimak FM builds on the experience gained from several installations offshore, which have been given a vote of confidence by customers across the industry.

Made of hot dipped galvanized steel the Alimak cargo elevator handles the toughest working environments. Four galvanized mast towers / guide rails gives a very slim installation profile since they are recessed into the floor design. The Alimak elevator can be provided with a wide range of optional equipment and functions deliv­ering you the right equipment for each individual task.

Rack & pinion elevator benefits

The Alimak cargo elevator incorporates features that have made Alimak elevators a benchmark for the offshore industry worldwide, which elevators to less demanding environments takes advantage of. The Alimak FM cargo elevator platform have it’s drive machinery fitted beneath the elevator floor, along with brakes and gears, thus eliminating the need for a separate machine room or lift-well. The operation is not affected by rolls, pitches or heaves and the design is well suited for high earthquake loads. These benefits and the narrow installation profile makes the Alimak cargo elevator suitable for harsh environments.
