Chandelier Winch Systems

We design both single rope and multi-rope chandelier winches that raise and lower chandeliers and other luminaires making them more accessible for cleaning, maintenance or to enhance functionality.

We have been designing and building bespoke chandelier 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 by a single rope over the heads of person below. We have unique Contact Suspension Units for chandeliers or other lights that lock the chandelier to the ceiling when raised and make and break the electrical connection automatically. These can be used with manual or electric lighting winches and greatly simplify the installation when they can be used. Alternatively twin and triple multi rope systems can be employed.

  • No winch system parts are visible once the fitting is raised and in place
  • Our lighting winching systems can incorporate the use of Contact Suspension Units which combine robust construction with simple and reliable operation.
  • Soft start/stop is a standard feature of all-electric systems to aid with the required smooth operation when raising and lowering delicate light fittings.
  • One man sited at the winch position can easily and quickly lower the light for cleaning and maintenance using the remote control without the need for ladders or scaffolding.
  • Our systems help employers fulfil their duty of care to employees.
  • Our systems comply with best practice guidelines by eliminating the need to work from height and ensuring that the suspended load has two means of support.
  • Planned maintenance packages ensure the continuation of these compulsory annual checks.
  • Single rope systems – suited to raising and lowering lighter and smaller symmetrical objects that can be supported by one fixing point.
  • Multi-rope systems – suited for larger, heavier objects that can be supported by multiple fixing points.
  • Self contained systems – suited to raising and lowering very light objects where space is limited.
  • Control can be either wall-mounted push buttons, a flying lead style plug in remote, a full radio remote control system or our can easily be integrated with all modern home automation systems (Crestron, Lutron etc).

Our Chandelier Winch Systems

Single Rope Chandelier Winch Systems

Single rope systems are better suited to raising and lowering lighter and smaller symmetrical objects that can be supported by one fixing point.


Multi-Rope Chandelier Winch Systems

Multi-rope chandelier winch systems are the best solution for raising and lowering larger objects and objects where the weight is not distributed evenly.

Safe & Reliable Chandelier Winches

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 chandelier winches 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.
