The K4E car parking lift allows driver on board during operation for the
whole of its maximum travel distance. Operation is via a touch screen
easily accessible by the driver on board.


The K4E travels at a maximum speed of 150mm/second (9-metres per minute) fully loaded thus capable of travelling between 3-metre levels in approximately 20 seconds. The maximum speed is set by the Australian Standard and is specific to when a person is travelling on the lift platfrom. The K4E has the ability to double its travel speed when it is unloaded for both the up and down motions. This load sensitive over speed (LSOS) is able to provide major reductions in the full cycle time of the lift. Additionally, in order to minimise waiting time in high capacity buildings the K4E can travel at 80% overspeed when being called (unloaded) to the respective level.


The unique drive system relies on fail safe brakes which engage in a matter of milliseconds and doesn’t need to rely on clunky, failure-prone locking pin arrangements to ensure the platform is secure at the entry and exit levels. The lift is managed by a Category 3 safety control system comprising market leading Siemens variable speed drive and sensor technology which constantly monitors critical systems to provide safe operation.


The K4E has the capability to harness the kinetic energy normally discharged by conventional drive systems and store this energy in a battery backup array capable of saving energy bills and providing emergency means of egress in the event that a vehicle is in the lift during an unscheduled mains power outage. The K4E has the ability to run completely off grid. Owners can choose to install the ACL Solar Option which, together with the ACL battery and ACL regenerative power technology (RPT) will enable the system to operate with no connection to mains power.


Uniquely designed and manufactured in Australia, the K4E meets the internationally recognised global essential safety requirements for elevators and is designed in accordance with the relevant Australian design and installation standards: including but no limited to AS ISO 22559, AS4024, AS3000, AS3990.

A range of customisable interiors are available, including cladding and lighting
