Electric Chain Hoists

Quick Ref: CN-6
Discounted high quality, low cost electric chain blocks (chain hoists) - We can supply an electrically powered hoist to suit almost any budget and application.

LiftingSafety offer in our online shop/catalogue a range of Electric chain hoists to suit most applications from many of the leading quality hoist manufacturers including Yale, Stahl, Hadef, Donati, Tractel, Verlinde, Kito and many more to come in the near future. We are constantly looking for new manufacturers with additional lifting equipment features so that we will be able to cater for all our customers requirements.

Options for the powered chain hoists that we offer are very similar to that of the manual hand chain hoist with the addition of powered motions as opposed to requiring manual effort to raise or travel the load along a crane or runway beam.

Our electric lifting hoists are fitted with supplied hook suspension or with an integrated manual or powered trolley and they can be controlled by a push button pendant or by radio remote control. Options are available with slow, fast or variable lifting speeds and hoists can be supplied to suit a variety of different voltages / power supplies with bespoke hoists also available, suitable for different environments (offshore, cleanroom, wet and/or dusty etc.), dependant on user requirements.

We can also supply specialist application units which have been specifically designed for use on wind turbines and Atex areas.

We appreciate that an electrically driven chain hoist can represent a sizable investment and so if you are even a little unsure as to the most appropriate type or model, then please contact our sales or technical staff who will assist you accordingly.

Wind Turbine Electric Chain Hoists with High Speed Lift and up to 1000kg Capacity

LiftingSafety are compiling a collection of hoists for use or potential use on wind turbines from lifting equipment manufacturers all over the globe. We offer both electric chain hoists suitable for offshore use. Used for maintenance and some times and permanent installation. The key feature about a chain hoist used on offshore wind turbines is the lifting speed and the weather protection. The chain hoist must be able to lift the load faster than the see can raise (sea swell) as per the industries acceptable sea state conditions. We offer turbine hoists from Columbus McKinnon and from Verlinde though will be adding to this category in the near future.

Verlinde Electric Chain Hoists up to 10 tonnes

Verlinde electrically powered hoists are of excellent quality and are extremely customizable, based on the requirements of the user, with capacity options from 60kg up to 10000kg. Verlinde manufacture their hoisting equipment in France for Morris materials handling and for Kone Cranes, which are basically the same hoist with a different badge. As with the Kito hoists, the range of Verlinde electric hoists are more costly than some other electric hoists though the range is far greater than most, as is their ability to modify a particular hoist to suit the customers specific working environment.

More Information

An electric hoist, with a mains powered electric motor (generally 110v, 240v or 415v AC) and that utilises a chain to perform the lift, is often referred to by a more common term which is an 'electric chain hoist'. We can supply almost any type or brand of electric hoist from most major hoisting equipment manufacturers. We are also a supplier of a complete range of manual chain hoists, wire rope hoists and scaffold hoists that could possibly prove to be a better suited hoist for the more specific application.

Just about all of the hoists which we supply are also available with a full range of customisations and accessories to suit, which can add usability, practicality and functionality, that then in turn can ease user effort required, thus increasing productivity and possibly reducing overall production costs.

This particular type of hoisting equipment can be supplied with a variety of compatible options such as:

  • 1Ph (single phase) electric - Generally 110v or 230v/240v
  • 3Ph (three phase) electric - Industrial 400v/415v
  • 18v DC - See our battery powered electric chain hoist for more information. Though only available in 250kg or 500kg safe working loads.
  • Capacities ranging from 60kg up to 50000kg.
  • Wide range of other unit specific features such as twin hooks or spark resistance for example.

Note: One of our electric winches may also be a more suitable lifting device, which could make lifting and handling your loads easier, more efficient, and possibly faster. Also available, which may be of interest is a wide range of air hoists, which have a more specific assortment of features, that make them more suitable for conditions such as hazardous environments or under-water (sub-sea) for example.
