TC16 Lifting Column

The TC16 lifting column is a self-supporting, lightweight unit made for domestic, office, and medical applications where quiet operation is required. Built around a combination of double-telescoping lead screws with belt driven gearing, this unique design ensures a high load torque capacity.  It also features a very short retracted length and a low stroke-to-retracted length ratio.

The TC16 lifting column is no longer available. For new applications please consider the LC2000 Lifting Columns.
