An electric wire rope hoist is designed to lift and pull a load. When lifting a load, there is a factor of safety (FOS) requirement of 5:1. For pulling a load, the FOS requirement is 3:1. Our stock of electric wire rope hoists and crab units come in capacities of up to 100 tonnes. They can have three speed formats and a variety of suspension formats.
Electric wire rope hoists can come in a number of different types. The one you choose will depend on your lifting requirements – different hoists are compatible with different applications. Here is a brief summary of each kind:
Fixed Position: These are made for basic installations. The hoist will be stationary, though if required in future a trolley can usually be added on.
Monorail: This type of hoist features horizontal movement along a beam.
Low headroom: For applications where there is low headroom, or you need to be able to bring the hook right up to the beam, you will require a low headroom electric wire rope hoist.
Twin Beam (Crab Unit): These are suitable for use with dual girder overhead cranes. The hoist is placed on top of the girders – it does not run along the bottom flange. This allows for maximum hook path and higher capacities.
