VGPA workshop portal frame

A characteristic of VERLINDE´s VGPA workshop portal frame is that it is entirely made of EUROSYSTEM ALU type aluminium hollow sections. It is designed for handling loads of from 125 to 2000kg. The VERLINDE group´s range of aluminium sections designed for overhead handling systems is known as EUROSYSTEM ALU. EUROSYSTEM ALU sets itself apart by the lightness of its aluminium hollow sections with a rolling coefficient enabling effortless travelling trolley positioning.

The lightness of EUROSYSTEME ALU sections enable the VGPA portal frame to be installed and handled by one person. Its weight is now half that of equivalent conventional steel structures. The lightness of the rails also offers the user easy, relatively effortless manipulation even with heavy, unwieldy loads.

With its fully modular design, VGPA portal frames are fitted with folding legs and their height can be adjusted from 1550 to 4000 mm. They are mounted on white polyamide hinged wheels for inside use. The portal frame is fully mobile under load.

EUROSYSTEM ALU profiles offers VGPA many operational advantages. The aluminium is anodized outside and inside meaning remarkable resistance to wear. Furthermore, they are compatible with all ITEM standardized accessories and guaranteed weld-free for greater safety. Finally, the remarkable smoothness of the track surface ensures silent operating.

A power supply line together with a lockable switch are optional.
