Overhead Wire Rope Crane Hoists
In this category we offer wore rope lifting hoists to raise a load using steel wire rope rather than using chain! We offer a wire rope hoists to suit our customers working conditions / environment and will custom / specialise the hoist accordingly. Fitting limit switches and overload protection, for indoor or outdoor use and with specialist control systems including long range radio remote control. Wire rope Hoists can be supplied with condition monitoring on board and also with integrated load indicators installed into the pendant control – an excellent accessory in our safety conscious world. We also modify certain hoist so that they are suitable for use in an Atex environment, explosion proof wire rope hoists to suit Zone 1 and 2 that are often referred to as spark proof or spark resistant. We distribute for Verlinde, Morris, Kone cranes, Donati and Yale, all these quality products will soon be available to buy or quote throughout our web site. Our extensive range of overhead Crane Wire Rope Hoists are Wire rope lifting hoists for use in overhead workshop cranes systems and monorail type lifting beams with capacities up to 100 tonne SWL, single girder, double girder, monorail, low headroom and crab units.
Overhead Electric Wire Rope Hoists are used in many industry sectors for the lifting, as a replacement hoist of new installation for the lifting of goods and equipment in a safe and controlled way. Different types and styles are; fixed mount (solid mounted) with monorail trolley, single girder / double girder short headroom (low head room) and crab units. Wire rope hoists give a better duty cycle than a comparative electric chain hoist so are more suitable for heavy duty use such as a production environment. They are also available with greater heights of lift and commonly supplied up to 100 tonne.

The Donati DRH series of electric wire rope hoists are available with a wide variety of options, such as height of lift (hook path) from 4 to 58 metres and 1, 2 or 3 lifting speeds. Also mounting and trolley options can add versatility to the DRH series, some of the trolley options are; fixed mounted, suspended, single beam or twin beam low headroom trolley mounted.
Donati offers a 3-year guarantee on the DRH series of wire rope hoist, starting from the date of delivery, all at a reasonable price.
Tirak X Series has an unlimited height of lift because the wire rope is not stored in the machine, centrifugal brake for controlled descent in case of power failure and pendant control with up/down and emergency stop.
Lighter than the T-series, the X-series are most suited for bosun's chairs, inspection harnesses, one-man cradles and light suspended platforms.
Many options to choose from to create a solid mount (fixed) overhead crane wire rope hoist. Features include two speed pole-change hoisting motors (1:6) with bi-metal sensor and hoist D.C disc brake, maintenance free; they have 4 step gear limit switches (up, down, low speed up approach, phase fault protection) provided with overload protection and variable speed travelling motors: 2 to 20m/min (for hoist with trolley) and the hoist electrics cubicle including low voltage transformer. The motor protection is rated IP55 with an insulation class of F.
A massive range of wire rope hoists for use in industrial overhead cranes. This type of lifting hoist do not mount onto a single girder crane bridge, they span between two girders with a pair of load wheels sitting on the top flange, hence the name double girder hoist. They are often used in higher capacity cranes with longer spans of crane bridge. Their other advantage is that the crane hook rises between the girders creating low headroom capability (very high raised hook position).
We offer a choice of electric single or three phase power supplies or compresses air/pneumatic motors with an optional corrosion resistant finish suitable for offshore use. Monorail hoists and lifting beams to customers dimensional requirements with manual travel or power travel monorail trolley systems (Low headroom design) with integrated wire rope reeler and height of lift to suit customers requirements. Wired pendant control or radio remote control. Optional overload protection that can be factory set to stall at customers chosen capacity. Optional lifting speeds available up to 18 metre per minute and single or dual speed lifting with lifting capacities of up to 3000kg per hoist.
Online at liftingsafety we also have a wide range of electric chain hoists which may prove to be a more suitable hoisting solution to an overhead crane system. Along with the electric chain hoists on-line, there are a complete range of different powered hoists such as a manually powered lever hoist or hand chain block, which are a very cost effective piece of equipment for hoisting. Also we can supply a variety of hydraulic and pneumatically powered hoists. The majority of hoists on offer are customisable to suit customer specification which can make them a very useful piece of equipment. If you are at all unsure about which particular hoist or type of hoist is best suited for your application, please feel free to contact us for assistance.
