Electric Wire Rope Hoists

We supply Electric Wire Rope Hoists and Crab Units with up to 50 tonnes capacity from top manufacturers.

We can supply, install and repair all types of Wire Rope Hoists with various modes of suspension.

Types of Electric Wire Rope Hoists:

Fixed Position Wire Rope Hoists- Manufactured for basic installations where the hoist will be fitted in a static position generally as a foot mounted unit.

Monorail Wire Rope Hoists- Designed to be ‘underslung’ on a power travel trolley running horizontally along a beam on the bottom flange with a standard headroom configuration.

Low Headroom Electric Wire Rope Hoists- Designed to gain the maximum hook path in applications where headroom is critical or where hoist dimensions need to be kept to a minimum and allowing the hook to lift right up to the underside of the beam.

Top Running Crab Unit with Electric Wire Rope Hoists- Suitable for double girder Overhead Cranes where the hoist sits on top of the girders instead of running along the bottom flange like the other variations. This configuration also allows maximum hook height and indeed higher lifting capacities to be achieved.

Our range of Wire Rope Hoists are supplied with dual speed operation, have capacities up to 50 tonnes and feature innovative design and high quality components to ensure maximum safety and efficiency.
