Picture7Alpha 500/800 – Industry Leader

The Alpha hoist series has often been referred to as simply the best hoist ever made in the powered suspended access business. The Alpha series boasts a unique traction mechanism which allows the wire rope to enter without friction and then squeezes the rope with equally distributed pressure over 360° to attain the lifting traction.

Picture7Sky Lock and Sky Grip Fall Arrest Safety Devices

The Sky Lock is a fall arrest safety device that detects over-speed. The Sky Lock, available for 8 mm, 9 mm and 10.2 mm steel wire ropes, is used in combination with our Sky Climber hoists and acts on the secondary safety rope. The Sky Grip is a breakthrough in the field of safety brake devices as it not only senses slack rope, but also functions as a mechanical anti-tilting device. Installed on a platform with two hoists, the Sky Grip covers the risk of failure of the suspension rope, no load condition of the suspension rope and an inclination of the platform of more than 12 degrees.
