Electric scaffold & gantry hoists to help lift materials

The goods hoist is more commonly used for refurbishment or construction projects but we at UK Scaffolders have many different types of scaffold hoist for all sorts of scenarios. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA The first hoist we offer is an electric Imer hoist capable of lifting weights from 150kg – 225kg. This type is single wired and will be bolted to the outside of scaffolds.

The single wire hoist has a hook on the end that will have chains attached for elevating larger items or wheel barrows full of building materials. The Imer type has a lifting speed of about 19m per minute. The next electric hoist type we have available is the Steinweg 300kg rack and pinion used widely throughout the construction, renovation and building industry.

These hoists will be easily operated by a simple push button control with a platform for raising and lifting materials that has 1.8m sides installed to three sides of the platform for easy movement of tube, boards and other large objects. There is a hinged ramp which is locked electronically.

The unloading of this is very easy as the platform will swivel 90 degrees into the face of the structure or elevation of the building. The largest type we have in stock is the Wickham 1000kg mast which will be mainly used for transporting people on site up to a level or for large materials.

This lifting equipment has a large cage 3m x 1.5m and includes a roof to the cage with a trapdoor as an emergency exit and to assist with the erection. There is a control panel for using this and if hired from us we include a free training session for up to six users.

We will include any of these products with or without our scaffolding and for further details or advice on the best options of scaffold hoist we have available for your project please contact us. We will be more than happy to help and please ask for details on our price match promise!
