When hoisting lightweight goods and material on site a Gin Wheel can be very useful and also very dangerous.

The creators of the Securepulley found this to be a problem with the common Gin Wheel and there for designed the solution; the Securepulley.

Featuring a self activating brake to stop the load from moving as soon as the user releases the rope. The load is held eliminating any risk of falling loads and eliminates the risk of danger to the operator and others around.

Self activating brake protects the load and user!

The Securepulley key features are:

Lifting and Lowering of loads with automatic brake Lowering the empty rope

Secure Pulley is the only Gin Wheel for the building industry that conforms to Machinery Directive ECC 89/392 complete with CE mark.

Being a labourer isn’t always easy, hauling heavy loads of bricks, motor and other building material is strenuous hard work but mostly it costs you time, and time, is money!

Money well spent is a scaffold hoist, as an investment that will save you time, effort and money, get the job done quicker, save on labour costs and move on to the next job quicker! Life becomes easier with the addition of a builders hoist.

High quality industrial builders hoists can be supplied for under £800 in 230v or 110v 1 phase 50hz power formats with the safe working load up to 200kg (anything over this requires a gantry frame as the scaffold poles will bend over 200kg) usual heights of lift extend to 25 meters, hoists can feature extendable booms for long reach and rotating A frames that attach to the scaffold using scaffold clips that are easily tightened.

110v and 230v single phase electric chain hoists are only available from A handful of manufacturers at a higher price than normal three phase options.units with one phase are usually sold into the hire market for use on building sites and residential areas where three phase power supply is not available.

There are several complications that can occur when choosing a single phase hoist, a couple things to consider are the distance the hoist will be from the supply and the supply itself, to startup and run these units require a lot of power and it is recommended that all single phase units have their own dedicated power supply in order to ensure that sufficient power is supplied to the machine. Further issues such as two speed operation are not an option with single phase, not are entertainment hoists with a double brake as the secondary brake requires a direct phase for power. Electric travel beam trollies are also not an option with most manufacturers, CM L...

Scaffold Hoists are ultimately designed to make a builders life easier! With working heights up to 30m a Scaffold Hoist can usually lift up to 200kg as this is the maximum weight most scaffolding poles can cope with.

Easy to use a scaffold hoist can be rigged up and ready to operate in just a moment! Simply mount the hoist on a scaffold pole and tighten the securing clips until you are satisfied it is safe.
