Atlas® Automotive Equipment ATPK-BP-EXTKIT Baseplate Extension Kit
The Atlas® Base Plate Extension Kit is designed for those customers who are unsure of the integrity (thickness and PSI) of their concrete floor. These extensions increase the column base surface area that is anchored to the floor.
These extensions DO NOT increase the rated lifting capacity of the base plate lift.
As we have described on our website, an overhead lift has more “stability” than a base plate lift because the bar across the top of the overhead lift helps to stabilize each column as the vehicle (located between the columns) is raised.
The column support of the base plate lift relies solely on the anchoring system that secures the columns to the concrete floor. The column bases of all Atlas® base plate lifts (when properly anchored to 4 inches of concrete (3,000 PSI)) provide required stability for the rated capacity of the lift.
