Hoist Solutions

Vertical hoists

A vertical hoist is used to move materials and equipment up and down the sides of buildings or structures during construction.

They are designed to attach to scaffold and run on either single or twin mast sections, depending on the scale of the project and the weight loads required.

Our range of vertical hoists for hire are supplied by Böcker and ALIMAK, two of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-quality, reliable and innovative lifting technology.

Available in capacities of 300kg, 500kg and 2000kg, simple to operate and suitable for both materials and people transporting, they are popular with roofing contractors and construction site managers working on large multi-storey projects.

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