Passenger & Goods Hoists

Passenger and Goods Hoist Hire

Passenger & goods hoists are used to transport people and materials vertically up a building or structure, and down a shaft below ground level, with the ability to stop at a number of landings.

The hoist cage is driven by one, two or three geared brake motors, depending on the payload of the cage. The geared motor drives a pinion acting on the mast rack to move the hoist cage in the desired direction. In addition to the drive motors there is a completely independent ‘safety device’ that comes in to play should the hoist cage exceed its rated travel speed in a downward direction. This brings the hoist cage to a controlled stop within three metres of operation.
Hoist cages can be supplied in a variety of sizes: 1.0 - 6.2 metres long, 1.3 – 2.0 metres wide and payload between 500 – 3200Kg. With access to the cage available from three sides, hoists can be configured to suit most applications in construction and across industry.

A recent addition to our fleet is the Alimak Mammoth 55/46 hoist, which has a 5500Kg capacity and measures 3m wide x 4.6m long.
Different drive technologies and control systems are available to suit the intended use of the hoist and provide a reliable and efficient solution for your hoisting needs.
Passenger & goods hoists are usually operated from inside the cage by a trained driver, who responds to calls from site personnel and supervises the safe loading and unloading of the cage at the required landings.
