The Verlinde Stagemaker SM electric hoist is the pre-curser to the latest SR hoist though is still very popular. It is a compact hoisting system which is extensively used in the entertainment industry. They are ideal for use in stage and theatre applications, but are also perfect for use on mobile tours.

These compact electric hoists are very versatile with some models being able to be used in an inverted position. This essentially turns them into a climbing hoist where the load is attached to the suspension hook. This means that the hoist is suspended from the load hook and therefore when operated the entire hoist body together with the attached load will be lifted. 

All models are available as a standard hoist in the normal position and are used in the same way as any other standard hoist.  To be able to use these hoist either way can make theatre work much easier. Stage sets, lighting systems and speakers as well as scenery can be handled in a much safer and quicker way.  

Key Components of the Verlinde Stagemaker SM Electric Hoist 

The Stagemaker SM has some great features to ensure the hoist works to optimum performance, consistently and safely as well as making the hoist easier to use.

 The main body of the hoist is made from injection cast aluminium to reduce the weight. There are also ribbed vents to enable efficient heat dissipation. There is a large panel for access to electrical components including plug and play controllers. Maintenance is also carried out from here. 

For fluidity of the chain movement the load wheel has 5 machined pockets and with a horizontal chain flux output the chain is guided seamlessly.

The black electro-galvanized lifting chain minimises its visibility which is an added bonus when used in theatres etc.  This feeds into and out of the high graded fabric chain bag which can be removed.

Version A has a class F motor, electro-magnetic disc brake and load limiter for enhanced safety. Swivel hooks make fitting the hoist and attaching loads much easier, and the hand grip makes handling and transportation easier too.

Options Available 

There are many extras available including controller packs and flight cases for easy transport.

There are numerous configurations available, Models SM1, 2, 5 & 10 can be configured as a climbing hoist whilst the above plus the SM16, 20 & 25 are configurable as a standard industrial type suspension hoist.  

There is a wide range of optional equipment available for the Verlinde Stagemaker SM electric hoist, these include:

  • Built in encoder
  • Pendant control
  • Geared limit switches with 2 or 4 cams
  • 2 lifting speeds
  • Double brake
