6-STORY VERTICAL RECIPROCATING CONVEYOR
The owner of Bayside Harley was designing his flagship store and dealership location for Portsmouth, VA. The site was at a lower elevation than the local Interstate (I-264) and he wanted to create a visual display of the dealership to motorists passing by.
Working with Maurice Slaughter (owner of Bayside HD), Loredana Henderson (owner’s design rep), and HBA Architecture; PeakLogix and Pflow designed a Vertical Reciprocating Conveyor (VRC) that would travel between six levels of a display tower to deliver and transport motorcycles to the five upper-level display areas.
PeakLogix successfully completed design and installation of the M-Series VRC before permanent power was supplied to the tower. Today, the display tower shines with Harleys on each level and is fully visible by motorists from I-264. The system allows for two fully outfitted Electra Glides® to be delivered at one time to any of the five upper-levels.
- Pflow M-Series Mechanical Vertical Reciprocating Conveyor with 6-levels, 3,000 lb. capacity and 6’ x 10’ carriage.
- Turnkey installation in brick and mortar shaft with bi-swing gates at each level.
