Systems You Can Rely On

We have been designing and building bespoke lighting hoist and winch equipment for many years and are familiar with the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations and all our products are CE marked. The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) 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.
