Hoist Solutions

Inclined Böcker hoists

Our range of inclined hoists ensure the safe, efficient, and cost-effective transport of loads to great heights, making them ideal for roofing and general building contractors working on large flat roof projects and where space is limited.

Trailer mounted and self-erecting they can be moved between locations quickly and easily.

Easy to operate with no requirement for technical training, a hydraulically powered winch extends and retracts the ladders to the desired height, whilst another winch raises and lowers a carriage, which runs on the ladders.

Also available with hybrid and all electric motor versions delivering low-emissions, quiet operation and suitable for confined spaces.

With an extensive range of accessories, our inclined hoists can be tailored to your specific needs and load-bearing requirements for roofing materials, bulk materials, and solar panels. The highly popular tipping carriage allows easy access to the platform without compromising the edge protection.

All our inclined hoists are available for short and long term hire, with full technical support, installation and onsite operator training.

Ladder / top-lift hoists

Sectional inclined elevators work on the same principle as the trailer-mounted hoists; however, their ladder sections are bolted together in situ and they are powered by an electric motor. Very versatile with a selection of platforms for different operations, they have a safe working load of 250kg. The tipping carriage is a popular choice as it allows access to the platform without compromising the edge protection.
