Floor Requirement
The lift MUST be installed on 3000 PSI concrete with the minimum thickness of
4 inches (please reference anchor bolt manufacturer website) and a minimum
edge distance of 5’’ from anchoring points. New concrete must be adequately
cured by at least 20 days minimum.
Specifications of concrete must be adhered to. Failure to do so
could cause lift failure resulting in personal injury or death.
A level floor is suggested for proper installation. Small
differences in floor slope may be compensated by proper
shimming. Any major slope change will affect the level lifting
performance. If a floor is of questionable slope, consider
pouring a new concrete slab.
7.5
Site Layout
• Now locate the lift according to the floor plan in figure 8, use a carpenters
chalk line to layout a grid for the column locations;
• After the column locations are properly marked, use a chalk or crayon to
make an outline of the columns on the floor at each location using the
column base plates as a template;
• Double check all dimensions and make sure that the bases of each column
are square and aligned with the chalk line.

Installation Of Column Extension (Ref. Fig. 9)
• Remove the column extension from
the package. Make sure to be careful
to avoid damaging the paint;
• Align the holes between the column
and the extension with carriage bolts
M10X20 and flange nuts M10;
• Tighten the bolts and nuts thoroughly.
7.7
Anchoring Columns
Figure 9
• Use the base plate on the column as a
guide and drill each hole in the
concrete with the rotary hammer drill 3/4in bit. Please refer to the anchor
bolt manufacture website for recommended values. To assure full holding
power, do not ream the hole or allow drill to wobble;
• After drilling, remove dust thoroughly from each hole using compressed air
and/or wire brush. Make certain that the column remains aligned with the
chalk line during this process;
• Assemble the
washers and nuts
on the anchors then
tap into each hole
with a hammer
until the washer
rests against the
base plate. Be sure
that if shimming
is required that
enough threads are
left exposed;
• If shimming is
required, insert the
shims as necessary
under the base
plate so that when
the anchor bolts
are tightened, the
columns will be
plumb;
Figure 10
Installation
Apex-10 / Apex-10H
32
• With the shims and anchor bolts in place, tighten by securing the nut to
the base. DO NOT use an impact wrench for this procedure;
• If anchors do not tighten to 150 ft-lbs. installation torque, replace the
concrete under each column base with a 4’ x 4’ x 6” thick 3000 PSI
minimum concrete pad keyed under and flush with the top of existing floor.
Allow concrete to cure before installing lifts and anchors (typically 2 to 3
weeks).
• Anchor another column as outlined in above steps;
• Make sure the columns are square and plumb as shown in the figure 10.
The requirements for column’s square and plumb must be
adhered to. Failure to do so could cause lift failure resulting in
personal injury or death.

Lockout and Tagout Procedures
Please refer to ANSI Z244.1
Purpose: This procedure establishes the minimum requirements for lockout of
energy sources that could cause injury to personnel by the operation of the lift.
All employees and/or operators shall comply with the procedure.
Responsibility: The responsibility for seeing that this procedure is followed is
binding upon all owners, employees and lift operators. All owners, employees
and operators shall be instructed in the safety significance of the lockout
procedure by the owner, supervisor or appropriate personnel. Each new or
transferred affected employee or operator shall be instructed by appropriate
personnel in the purpose and use of the lockout procedure.
Preparation for Lockout: Employees authorized to perform lockout shall be
certain as to which switch, valve, or other energy isolating devices applies to
the lift. More than one energy source (electrical, mechanical, or others) may
be involved. Any questionable identification of sources shall be cleared by
the employees, their supervisors, or appropriate personnel. Assure that job
authorization has been obtained before lockout commences.
Sequence of Lockout Procedure
• Notify all affected employees and operators that a lockout is required and
the reason therefore;
• If the lift is operating, shut it down by the normal stopping procedure (such
as assuring the disconnect switch is off);
• Operate the switch, valve, or other energy isolating devices so that
the energy source(s) (electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, and other) are
disconnected or isolated from the lift;
• If it is a lockable device, lockout with an assigned individual lock. If it is
not a lockable device, replace with a dummy device and tag accordingly.
If more than one individual is required to lock out the lift, each shall place
their own personal lock on the energy isolating device(s);
• Adequately label or tag the lift stating not to operate or tamper with the
tag or label;
Additional Information
Apex-10 / Apex-10H
57
• Stored energy (such as that in capacitors and hydraulic systems) must also
be addressed;
• After ensuring that no personnel are exposed and as a check to ensure
the lockout is working, operate the push button or other normal operating
controls to make certain the lift will not operate. Return the lift operating
controls to neutral position after the test;
• The equipment is now locked out.
Restoring Equipment to Service
• When the job is complete and equipment is ready for testing or normal
service, check the lift area to see that no one is exposed;
• When lift is clear, remove all locks. The energy isolating devices may be
operated to restore energy to lift.
Rules for Using Lockout Procedure: The lift shall be locked out to protect
against accidental or inadvertent operation when such operation could cause
injury to personnel. Never attempt to operate any switch, valve, or other energy
isolating device bearing a lock.

Wire Rope Replacement Criteria
WARNING
If any cable is found to be in need of replacement, the
entire cable set, pulleys and safety rollers, must be
replaced immediately. See Cable Condition Guide.
The Wire Rope MUST be Replaced if One or More of the Following
Criteria Are Met:
• More than six (6) randomly distributed broken wires in one rope lay or 6xd
length;
• More than three (3) broken wires in one strand in one rope lay or 6xd
length;
• Three (3) or more broken wires at rope terminations;
• One outer wire broken at the point or contact with the core of the rope
whish has worked its way out of the rope structure and protrudes or loops
out from the rope structure;
• Heavy rusting, corrosion, or pitting. A light surface corrosion on outer
wires is normal;
• Wear or scraping of one-third (1/3) of the original diameter of outside
individual wires;
• Excessive stretch. It is normal for new cable to require adjustment during
“break-in,” after which small periodic adjustments may be required.
However, if a cable that has been in service for 6 months should suddenly
require frequent adjustments or has used all the cable adjustments
available, all cables must be replaced immediately;
• Deformed strands, kinking, crushing, bird-caging, or any other damage or
distortion of wire rope structure;
• Variations in diameter (necking) or any change from normal appearance;
• Reductions from nominal diameter of more than 1/32” (for cables 3/8” to
1/2” diameter inclusive.);
• End attachments cracked, deformed or worn.
* Lay is the distance measured, parallel to the rope axis, in which a single strand makes one complete
turn around the rope axis, or the wires make a complete turn around the axis of the strand.
Please reference ANSI/ALI ALOIM standard for more information on
wire rope cable inspection.
