EG - ServerLIFT SL-500X Automatic server lifter to transport and install heavy IT components in data centres

In the past, rack mounting and moving heavy and bulky IT components around the Data Centre was difficult. This back breaking work was performed by the Data Centre technical or facility personnel with only some relief provided by using a trolley or cart to move the equipment to the cabinets. At least two people were needed to lift the heavy IT equipment up to the desired RU space in the cabinet. This procedure presents a high risk of injury for the Data Centre staff as well as a potential danger of damaging sensitive and valuable IT equipment. These difficulties are compounded by the fact that today’s Data Centres are growing dynamically and therefore IT hardware has to be changed, supplemented, relocated and reconfigured ever more frequently. Trolley carts and the muscle power of the IT staff naturally reach their physical limits, so the only way to correspond to the increasing demands is to use a capable transportation and server lifting solution.


 The ServerLIFT SL-500X is an automatically operated lifting trolley for the safe transport and easy integration of servers and other IT components in data centres. Able to handle loads of up to 226.8 kg, it allows data centre personnel to move even the heaviest IT equipment to the racks by themselves. This equipment can then be lifted up to a height of 2.4 m and inserted into any rack unit. It takes just 30 seconds to automatically lift the equipment from floor level up to the maximum height. The server lifter can be loaded from both the right or left side of the platform.

The server lifter, which is only 60 cm wide, is especially compact and thus easy to navigate through narrow doorways and rack aisles. Its excellent manoeuvrability is supplied by a locking system for the front wheels which allows the lifter to rotate on its axis to every degree even in the narrowest of rack corridors. A single operator is able to navigate the heavy load easily through doorways, narrow data centre aisles and can rotate on it on its axis to any degree and into the smallest of spaces.

For added convenience, the ServerLIFT SL-500X is equipped with a built-in battery charger and charge indicator. Both guarantee that the server lift-solution is provided with the optimal power for its heaviest work at any time. To make sure that this can be done with the required safety and stableness, the wheels of the ServerLIFTer chassis are secured for each lifting process with the integrated stabiliser brake system.

ServerLIFT SL-500X highlights:

  • Platform can be lowered to the bottom of the rack
  • The telescopically extendable platform can be raised up to a height of 2.4 m within just 30 seconds
  • The front wheels can be locked for extremely precise manoeuvring and stable positioning during loading
  • Maximum capacity: 226.8 kg
  • Can be loaded from both sides
  • Also ideal for use in contained cold or warm aisles
  • Fail-safe and powerful battery allows continuous operation of up to 8 hours when fully charged
  • Non-hydraulic winch motor

Transport and install heavy IT equipment easily and safely with ServerLift solutions in the data centre without breaking your back

Server lifters and hub solutions simplify installation and make it possible for IT personnel to transport heavy IT equipment in the data centre. Up to 454 kilograms of IT equipment can be automatically or manually transported with the ServerLift solutions for every rack, lifted up to a height of 2.4 m and integrated on any rack unit easily, comfortably and safely. Optional add-on modules such as a platform extender or a mechanism for precise vertical lifting of heavy IT equipment make it possible, for example, to vertically lift IT equipment right out of a packaging box and allow for easy hardware installation even in contained aisles with a low ceiling panel height or for special racks up to 3 m high.

Data Room Supplies are pleased to be able to offer a quick and simple way of purchasing your new equipment, through our preferred finance partner, Focus Leasing.

Established since 1994, Focus can offer you a finance solution to suit your needs for any equipment for £1000.00 plus VAT or more.  They cover the whole of the UK and have facilities to suit all of our customers, from start up ventures to PLCs.

 Improve Cashflow

Your complete purchase can be delivered and operational without the need for capital expenditure.  Have what you need today with no cash outlay.

 Retain Credit Lines

Keep existing banking arrangements, credit lines and cash free for uses that are more appropriate.  Our finance facilities cannot be withdrawn like overdraft facilities.  Use cash and bank funding for working capital to maintain a healthy business.

 Simplify Budgeting

Payments are fixed throughout the term of the agreement enabling accurate and simple budgeting and forecasting.  Bank facilities are generally related to interest rates, which is fine when they are low but can cripple cashflow when they increase.

 Let the Equipment Pay for Itself

Enable the finance payments to coincide with the benefits of having the new equipment as they start to appear.  You wouldn’t pay all your staff costs up front!  Pay for the equipment as you gain the benefits, not before.

 Keep Up to Date

Combat obsolescence problems or requirement changes as the equipment can be supplemented or upgraded at any time in the future.  Have what you really need to do the best job for you, not just what your budget limits you to.

 Simple Approval in Two Ways

First of all leasing may be classed as a revenue item for budget purposes which may make it easier for you to obtain authorisation for the expenditure.  Secondly, our approval process only takes one phone call and an approval is usually provided the same day.  

Finance figures quoted are subject to credit approval for business users trading for over 3 years only.  We can also offer finance to start up and new businesses – ask us for figures.

 An administration fee is payable with the first rental and will be confirmed on acceptance of a facility.
