Passenger Goods Hoists
Passenger Goods Hoists are used to transport men 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.
The hoist cage is driven by one, two or three geared brake motors, depending on the payload of the cage. The geared motor drives a pinion acting on the mast rack to move the hoist cage in the desired direction. In addition to the drive motors there is a completely independent ‘safety device’ that comes in to play should the hoist cage exceed its rated travel speed in a downward direction. This brings the hoist cage to a controlled stop within three metres of operation.
Hoist cages can be supplied 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 of the hoist and provide a reliable and efficient solution for your hoisting needs.
Passenger Goods Hoists are usually operated from inside the cage by a trained driver, who responds to calls from site personnel and supervises the safe loading and unloading of the cage at the required landings.
