V-Rail – Garment Monorail Systems

View our product video

V-rail systems are used to store and transport garments on hangers. It is an inexpensive non-motorized system. Garments are stored on trolleys that roll on V-rail lines that can be suspended from the ceiling or from a structure. Trolleys can be linked together to create trains that make it possible to easily move higher volumes of garments at a time. For an optimized use of space, the V-rail system can be installed at ceiling level using a motorized booster conveyor that will convey your trolley trains from floor to floor. Moreover, if your building is high enough, your V-rail system can be made of several storage levels.

Planiform will provide a turn-key project. Initially, we will have a professional engineer listen to your idea. Then the design will be presented to you for approval. Once approved, the fabrication, installation and comissioning will follow. This will result in a fully integrated and ready to use system…not to mention a fully satisfied customer.

Rails

The rails are made of steel and are equipped with guides to prevent yokes from falling. They are 10' (2.54 m) in length and may be cut easily during installation. They usually come in a zinc plated finish to protect against corrosion and give a better visual aspect.

Switches

The switches allows the use of another rail. They are available in 45 and 90 degrees on the right as on the left side. They are activated by a manual mechanism and they can outfitted with a pneumatic system for easier toggling.

Nylon yokes

The nylon yoke is reinforced with fiber glass. It is equipped with two wheels made of resistant plastic mounted on ball bearings. It has a capacity of 150 pounds (68.18 kg) per nylon yoke.

Metal yokes

The yokes are equipped with two ball-bearing mounted hard plastic wheels with a 50 lb (22.5 kg) load capacity. Due to their small plastic adaptor, they may be motorized and used in a conveyor.

Trolleys

Trolleys may be designed and customized for a variety of uses and products.Our regular trolleys are very popular and reliable. They may be hitched together to form trains, providing a continuous chain of merchandise. For example, these trains may be inserted on continuous parallel storage lines. In fact, a simple pull on the first trolley can pull an entire train out of its line.

Yoke conveyors

The yoke conveyor is used to move a yoke to a higher level.Often used in gravity systems, the yoke conveyor allows a yoke to be brought to the highest point of a circuit. Once released, the yoke can come back down on its gravity rail that commonly has a 2 degree incline. This type of conveyor is equipped with a sensor that detects the arrival of a yoke at its entry point. It immediately begins its operation to raise the yoke until it exits to then stop after a preset delay.

Trolley conveyors

Our trolley conveyors allow trolleys or trolley trains to be moved from one level to another. The machine may be activated in the up or down mode simply by inserting a trolley in the loading enclave. The machine will stop automatically at a preset time.

Structures

Our supporting structures, designed by professional engineers, allow you to develop a complex V-rail system without having to suspend it from the ceiling.
