Zarges Aluminum Systems Rope-Guided Service Lift

Zarges Aluminum Systems is making the ride from the base of a wind tower to the highest internal platform more stable and user-friendly. We'd like you to be one of the first to see our innovative modular design and how it will make wind turbine service easier for maintenance personnel.

Zarges, a global leader in wind tower internal system design and manufacturing, has developed the new, rope-guided service lift in response to requests from customers. Designed in collaboration with several wind turbine and tower manufacturers, the lift offers several improvements for operational ease, space availability and overall stability. And, as with all Zarges products, we've designed the new lift with safety of its users as the top priority.

Please join us to learn more about the benefits of this new lift. We'll show you its many innovative features and explain its benefits to users, developers and wind project owners.

We will be happy to meet with you at any time during WINDPOWER 2011. Please RSVP to Susette Brandt, vice president of sales, at or 806-350-6400.
