The difference between the fully raised height of the platform deck and the fully closed height of the platform deck on a scissors lift.

2) Waterfall

Descriptive term for the flanged portion of the wire mesh rack decking.  Most commonly the waterfall extends downwards over the outside face of the beam.

3) Vertical reciprocating conveyor

A conveyor that moves perpendicular to the floor and provides intermittent operation of a single load-carrying platform or cage which travels up and down on steel rails or guideways. There are many configurations of vertical reciprocating conveyors (VRCs) including those with a single mast, single rail, double mast, double rail and even models which offer incline travel versus strict vertical travel. There are also numerous platform configurations ranging from a simple flat steel surface to a powered roller conveyor deck with controls that are integrated with the controls of powered feed and take away conveyor lines at the different levels.
