There are several benefits to buying this brand of lifting equipment, including the impressive safety features that come as standard and the hard working, reliable components it uses.
The GIS GCH electric hoist possesses an adjustable double slip clutch, making it one of the safest hoists around. This is also helped by the positioning of the new brake system, which is located after the clutch.
The hoist motor works well in arduous conditions and is available in single or dual speed versions. You also have the option of adding extras such as a temperature control system and/or insulation for high heat and humidity areas.
The load chain is fixed to the main body of the hoist and has no risk of jamming thanks to the two-part chain guide. The disc brake is maintenance free which is an added bonus.
Helical gearing means that the hoist is extremely quiet in operation. The chain wheel is manufactured from hardened steel and has extra pockets to help improve the smooth flow of the chain.
You can easily double the load capacity of these hoists by changing them from a single to a double fall, this is simple to do. Low voltage 42V control is standard. There is also a geared limit switch as standard for chain lengths of up to 120m.
The pendant controller fits nicely in the palm and has 2 button controls with an emergency stop as standard. A working hours counter can be added as an optional extra. This makes it easier to monitor the hoist and schedule maintenance at suitable intervals, which can be useful when high duty cycles are regularly handled.
The main body of the GIS GCH hoist is made from cast aluminium and incorporates cooling gills/fins to help keep the hoist cool in tough operating conditions. This has the added benefit of reducing wear and tear, as well as minimising the likelihood of unexpected downtime. So in terms of consistent performance and cost-effectiveness, this hoist is a real asset.
Also available is the chain handy - (pictured) for left & right hand use. There are 2 versions of this tool handler; the standard chain handy and the telescopic chain handy. Both can be used for SWL up to 250kg and enable a safe and quick method of moving goods around with exact positioning. Please note: this will now be based on the new GP hoist.
