12 volt Summerlifts operate for a guaranteed 10,000 cycles with load capablities ranging from 160 to 600 pounds. * loads in excess of 225 pounds employ dual Summerlift cable lifts; loads in excess of 350 pounds use quad-Summerlift cable lifts.
||Summerlift Cable Lift design permits easy adaptation to fit your cabinetry - - width and height adjustable, Summerlift Cable lifts mount above, below, to either side . . . Lifting and lowering is done with 1/16" diameter flexible multistrand stainless steel cable . . . easily routed and directed by pulley placement. Pulleys are fastened with nuts/bolts and mounts provided to fit your application. REVIEW THE PULLEY BASICS PAGE - CLICK HERE|
|For example . . .
Fabrication of Pop Up TV brand cabinetry is a combination of cabinetry and a Summerlift Cable lift.
|A Pop Up TV like those shown, consists of an outer
shell to which faux doors are attached - - and an inner section (carrier)
that exposes the TV when raised.
The outer cabinetry (shell) has four sides - - no top. The top is attached to the carrier. The bottom of the carrier is the platform on which the TV is placed.
The carrier fits closely within the outer cabinetry - - with both remote control and manual controls for raising, lowering and automatic limiting travel in both directions.
Depending on configuration of your cabinet, the lift power unit may be located under the platform, behind the outer cabinetry or even located inside adoining cabinetry.
|The basic cabinetry is shown built of 3/4" (17 mm) multi-ply plywood.
The advantages of plywood strength and light weight are considerations.
Building a Summerlift into an existing cabinet, chest or drawer unit to elevate a TV often requires fitting of four internal partitions representing front, sides and back of the outer shell. Remember that the inside of the outer shell represents the surface on which the carrier will be sliding.
Lining the inside of the outer shell with high presure laminate is one desired method.
|The carrier is fabricated as a unit with two sides, back and platform. The top is best designed to be added last.|
|The carrier is raised and lowered by cables fastened in each corner.
One method used is to attach the cables to aluminum angle which is then
fastened to the platform.
Cables from each corner pass over pulleys mounted to the inside of the fixed outer shell for four point lifting and lowering.
|The cable & pulley arrangement shown (CL-1 model) illustrates the
Summerlift Cable Lift placed below the platform. The cables may be connected
directly to the carrier, or if desired, to the optional angle (shown)
to support the platform/carrier.
The adjusting turnbuckles (furnished) are to make final adjustments and leveling easy.
|The power unit may be located outside the lifting area by placing direction-changing
pulleys as needed. Remember that the load on each requires that they be
securely fastened (bolts and nuts).
A typical Pop Up TV may have a lifted weight of 55# (TV) + 60# (carrier cabinetry) + 30# (weight of the top). The 145 pound load is divided over the four lifting points - - approximating 40# per lifting point.
The height of the upper pulleys is determined by the height of the TV. The pulleys must be positioned high enough to be able to permit the platform surface to be just below the top of the front of the outer shell.
|Modification of existing cabinetry to accept a TV lift may require the internal addition of one or both sides, front and/or back plus carrier and top.|
|Looking down at the platform top shows the pulley placement on the outer shell. The pulleys are just under 1/2" thick (including the bolt/screw)|
|Cable travel can be varied to fit individual project requirements merely by repositioning pulleys.|
|The weight to be lifted, and width, length and height are up to you!
For example, a plasma TV may require a 40" wide platform that is only 6"
deep and 36" high.
We provide cable terminations and cable lengths to fit your needs. We'll make up the cables if you wish or, you can easily do it yourself. We provide the crimping tool too! It is simple requiring only a wrench to tighten two bolts that crimp the fittings.
|The power lift unit|
|The Summerlift Cable Lift RF remote control mounts within the cabinetry in
any convenient location. The antenna consists of a one meter length of
18 gage wire that is secured to the inside of the cabinetry.
Control wiring carries less than 1/2 amp thus
SHOW ME HOW
IT WORKS ON NEW and EXISTING CABINETRY:
|There is nearly no limit to the ways to utilize the Summerlift Cable Lift.|
|Lowering a TV from the ceiling requires adequate space above the ceiling to
house the outer shell, carrier and lift.
Joist framing and a trim cover frame are needed too.
