Founded in 1858, Verlinde began its history as a supplier of new and innovative screw hoists for the French navy and army engineering corps. Today, Verlinde is France’s leading manufacturer and exporter of industrial and commercial hoisting and handling equipment. Lifting Gear Direct supplies a range of versatile electric hoists from Verlinde, including the Eurochain VR for loads of between 63kg and 5,000kg and the compact Eurochain VL electric hoist.

With its compact build and variety lifting capacities, this range of electric chain hoists can handle between 500kg and 2000kg, depending on the model. Each unit offers a number of benefits, including two different lifting speeds, a double brake system with load limit settings for outstanding on-stage safety, straightforward operation via a control pendant and more besides.
As the name suggests, this hoist is especially well suited to use in theatres and other performance spaces. Its quiet, consistent operation allows it to make handling scenery and moving heavy equipment as simple and safe as possible.
With a redesigned body and a number of class-leading capabilities, the SR is a natural upgrade on the already impressive SM range. All models come with double brake as standard to give you peace of mind. For safe rigging tasks of all types it is a good investment, with unique perks like the chain flux system allowing smooth performance and minimal chance of jams occurring.
The higher capacity of this range stretches all the way up to 10,000kg, although the design of the VL has since been superseded by the VR range. It can still hold its own in a number of lifting scenarios, particularly when combined with an overhead beam, crane or other existing setup. For light and mid-weight operations alike it is a consistent, composed performer. And with IP55 certification it is tough enough to withstand the wear and tear of everyday use.
The cutting-edge VR range features a new, sleeker chassis and is built using the latest materials to improve its overall durability. From the galvanised lifting chain which resists corrosion to the disk-based lifting brakes, it is a quality product inside and out. It also features a revised approach to the way that the chain is handled to prevent snags, sudden speed changes or unwanted drops.
