Situations That Call for Personnel/Material Hoists
Construction scaffolding provides temporary work platforms, and is capable of holding employees, tools, and materials up to a certain weight. However, scaffolding alone may not be sufficient for your work site. Workers still need a way to transport heavy items up the building, and for the workers themselves to make repeated trips up and down without becoming overly fatigued. Personnel and material hoists are the solution.
With these specialty hoists, heavy equipment and materials can be transported to where they are needed with minimal risk to the worker. As the work gets underway, debris can be transported out on the hoist. Installing personnel and material hoists is also a smart idea when the construction project must be completed on a tight schedule. Compact hoists are available for work zones in which space is a critical issue, such as in urban settings.
