Passenger and Goods Hoists
Passenger and Goods Hoists are used to transport people and materials vertically up a building or structure and down a shaft below ground level with the ability to stop at a number of landings.
It is not permitted for passengers to ride in goods only hoists as they are not fitted with a roof. This does, however, enable the vertical transportation of larger items, as long as they are safely contained within the confines of the cage.
Bespoke hoists can be produced, or existing units modified, in our manufacturing facility. GB Access can engineer bespoke hoists, multiple units and common tower configurations to suit any lifting requirements you may have.
Beam hoists are most commonly found on city centre construction sites adjacent to main roads with no off-road unloading facilities. These sites typically have a scaffold gantry built out over the pavement and delivery vehicles pull up alongside the gantry to be offloaded.
