Danger in the Data Center​

“Manual material handling is the principal source of compensable injuries in the American workforce, and four out of five of these injuries will affect the lower back.”
– Occupational Safety and Health Administration

“Over 36% of injuries involving missed workdays were the result of shoulder and back injuries…lifting loads over 50 pounds will increase the risk of injury.”
– US Bureau of Labor

No More Manual Lifting

IT equipment manufacturers typically specify using two to four people for handling and installation. Even with four people, manually lifting equipment unnecessarily increases the risk of accident. Manual lifting also delays other critical data center tasks from being performed.

Save Time and Money with ServerLIFT®

Installing servers and related IT equipment is both dangerous and inefficient. Depending on the number of people used to install equipment, data center efficiency can improve by up to 300% with ServerLIFT®.

Two salaried employees installing a new piece of rack-mounted equipment weighing 75 pounds* by hand provides a perfect example. This task requires 30+ minutes of high-tension work per employee, risking muscle strain, pinched fingers, and other injuries. Conversely, a single tech using a ServerLIFT® data center lift can make the move in 15 minutes with no risk involved.

30 Day Money Back Guarantee

The ServerLIFT® Guarantee

The SL-1000X Super-Duty Lift is backed by a worry-free, 30-day Money-Back Guarantee.


Heavy Duty Platform

The platform stays rigid and level, even when lifting up to 1,000 lbs (454 kgs). This provides the critical post-to-post alignment needed to precisely rack-mount any server, making installation a breeze.

Side-Loading Capability

The side-shifting platform orients equipment for loading parallel to racks on either side of an aisle. With 6 inches (15.24 cm) of lateral movement in either direction, the platform provides the support you need while securing the equipment to the rack.
