IMER builders hoists have been manufactured specifically for the building and construction industries for more than half a century and produce quality products that can be relied upon.
Construction workers need reliable lifting equipment as down time costs money. Scaffold hoists are commonly used on sites where scaffold towers are present, however it is often the case that scaffolding is not present at certain times during the building process but materials still need to be lifted to higher areas. This is where an IMER builders hoist comes in handy.
Used in conjunction with an IMER gantry frame (see scaffold and gantry hoist accessories) these electric hoists can be positioned over the side of a structure to lift any required materials or equipment. Ballast boxes to the rear of the frame invoke the counter-balance to ensure the gantry, hoist and load remain stable.
You should always refer to and follow the manufacturer’s user instructions to ensure safety and stability at all times.
The ET 300 N is a builders gantry hoist that is both easy to use and compact in design, delivering a solid 300kg load capacity and a simple pendant control unit for uncomplicated operation. It can hit load lifting speeds of between 18 and 19 metres on average, with a maximum working height of 25 metres making it competitive in its particular market segment.
Operators will not have to put up with too much of an aural assault when using this gantry hoist thanks to its sub-75 decibel volume rating. Meanwhile the sturdy steel rope is resilient and reliable, just like the IP67-rated plug.
The larger of the two IMER builders hoists we stock, the BS 500 can cope with loads weighing up to half a tonne, lifting and lowering them at speeds of up to 26 metres per second even when this limit is reached.
The motor can work at 1400rpm and will generate under 80 decibels from the operator’s position, which is definitely tolerable with hearing protection in place.
This gantry hoist is built to be used continuously, so is innately durable and will be tough enough to survive whatever heavy duty lifting tasks you need to throw at it.
If you are thinking about buying IMER builders gantry hoists, you will also need to make sure that they are paired with compatible accessories to allow them to be used effectively and as intended.
