Construction Hoist Hire
A-Plant (through GB Access & Hoist-It) supply goods and passenger hoists for hire to the construction and industrial sectors.
Passenger and Goods Hoists
We supply hoist cages in a variety of sizes: 1.0 - 6.3 metres long, 1.3 – 2.0 metres wide and payload between 500 – 3200Kg. With access to the cage available from three sides, hoists can be configured to suit most applications in construction and industry. Different drive technologies and control systems are available to suit the intended use and provide a reliable and efficient solution for your hoisting needs.
Goods Only Hoists
Goods only hoists are available with cage internal lengths of 1.0 – 6.2 metres, internal widths of 1.4 – 2.0 metres and payloads of 300 – 2500Kg and use one, two or three motor drives as per the passenger goods hoists. Goods hoist cages are equipped with large drop down flaps at either end of the cage to provide a loading ramp to the landing level. This enables pallet trucks and trollies to be moved in to and out of the cage with ease.
We can produce bespoke hoists or modify existing units at our manufacturing facility. we can engineer bespoke hoists, multiple units and common tower configurations to suit any lifting requirements you may have. While most hoist applications can be fulfilled by configuration of standard hoist components, our fully equipped workshops can modify hoist cages and accessories for those awkward requirements. Hoist cages can be adapted to suit different sizes and shapes of existing lift shafts or finished in our customers' own brand colours.
Most commonly found on city centre construction sites adjacent to main roads with no offroad unloading facilities, beam hoist is an 'I' section beam, mounted on the site scaffolding and extends past the outer edge of the gantry. A motorised trolley unit, which has an electric winch suspended from it, runs along the beam. This enables materials to be lifted from the delivery vehicle, transporting them via the trolley onto the gantry for distribution to the workplace. Winch units are available with a variety of chain lengths and 1000 or 2000Kg lifting capacity.
We offer a range of accessories which enable our hoist cages and industrial lifts to be configured for maximum safety and efficiency. These products include landing protection panels, landing infill plates, foundation steel plates, landing bridges, top hats and pipe carriers.
