"As a builder, nobody knows better than time equals money. My builders hoist went down on site causing major delays. As it was pretty old, I decided on a new and hopefully faster one. Found Lifting Gear Direct on Google and called them. As they were fairly close an engineer came out and managed to get the hoist going again, at least for now. This was great as I could keep the construction going whilst I waited for the new scaffold hoist to arrive. Great service, good prices and timescales. Would gladly recommend these guys. Thank you."
Builders hoists or gantry hoists are specialist electric hoisting systems which attach to a special gantry frame. They are commonly used on building sites for new builds, building reconstruction work and maintenance work, and also in other areas where there is no scaffolding to enable the use of a scaffold hoist, but materials still need to be lifted and lowered to varying heights.
The gantry frame can be positioned so that is overhangs the side of the building with the builders hoist attached to the overhanging edge. The gantry frame uses ballast boxes at the rear in order to counterbalance the weight, the ballast boxes can be filled with suitable materials exceeding the combined weight of the builders hoist and load to be lifted. We can supply gantry frames and ballast boxes to suit lifting capacities of 300kg, 500kg & 800kg.
