Maxi-Lift introduces Super Splice
Maxi-Lift, Inc. introduces the Maxi-Lift Super Splice. The new Super Splice is specially designed for splicing elevator belts rated between 800-1200 PIW.

The Super Splice fills that void and then some. This splice is simple to install and effective in purpose," says Bo Fisher, VP of Sales for North America.
