We have been designing and building bespoke lighting hoist and winch equipment for many years, working to the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations ensuring all our products are CE marked. The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations apply to any winching or lifting system that involves a change in level. This puts certain duties on the installer and operator and we are able to help offer peace of mind when it comes to safety.
Nothing should be suspended from a winch by a single rope over people directly below. We have unique Contact Suspension Units for chandeliers or other lights that are used with our single rope winch systems. These devices lock the chandelier to the ceiling when raised and make and break the electrical connection automatically during the raising and lowering process ensuring that the fitting is isolated for additional safety.
Alternatively, twin, triple or other multi rope systems can be employed depending on the shape and size of the fitting you need to raise and lower. Multi rope systems are perfect for when a light fitting needs to be illuminated throughout the full raising and lowering operation or when there is a requirement to suspend the fitting illuminated at different heights.
Although our winching systems are most commonly used for light fittings such as chandeliers or high bay lighting, they can also be used for any other high-level items that require cleaning or maintenance such as artwork, ceiling fans, speakers, CCTV and sensor units.
