A construction hoist is the safest, fastest and easiest way to transport passengers and/or goods vertically.

The hoist cage/platform is driven by a geared single or three phase brake motor depending on the safe working load of the hoist. 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 an independent 'safety device' that will activate should the hoist cage exceed its rated travel speed in a downward direction. This brings the hoist cage/platform to a safe and controlled stop within three metres of operation.

Hoist cages/platforms can be supplied by Rapid Hoists in a variety of sizes and payload between 200kg-3200kg. With access to the cage available from two or three sides, our hoists can be configured to suit most applications in the construction 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 hoists are usually operated from inside the cage and goods only hoists are usually operated from ground level by ground enclosure controls or handsets
