Commonly used in construction projects such as high-rise buildings, hoists are particularly useful for lifting and lowering heavy loads through the use of drums or lift-wheels around ropes and chain wraps.
About Our Hoist Service
Construction hoists, otherwise commonly known as Buck hoist, builder hoist, Man-Lift, temporary elevator, or construction elevators, are commonly used on large-scale projects in the midst of construction. During this period, the hoist acts as a method of transporting heavy loads such as materials, equipment, and even people quickly between the ground floor and higher floors.
Our construction hoists can be split into 3 different types: personnel movement, material utility movement, as well as dual-rated which is capable of both. Made with either one or two cage cars that travel vertically along tower sections, the mast sections are securely attached to the building or structure itself to ensure stability. As such, the installation of construction hoists must be carefully planned for depending on the different factors surrounding the building structure as well as the type of load to be moved. With advancements in recent technologies, modern construction hoists now make use of motorized rack-and-pinion systems which allow for climbing mast sections at different speeds.
Benefits of Installing Hoist
Installing a hoist strategically would greatly help to increase workplace efficiency and thus result in a quicker construction process. The hoist would allow workers to transport both themselves and equipment to and from the ground floor and save the energy of workers.
Common Applications of Hoist
As mentioned previously, construction hoists mainly serve the purpose of transporting heavy loads like tools and manpower between the ground and higher floors.
Other types of hoists include overhead hoists typically used to lift or lower suspended loads, as well as mining hoists that help to lower and raise conveyances in a mine shaft, similar to elevators.
