Ceiling Hoist Installation Process and Components

Did you know Qspec can supply and install ceiling hoists?
Qspec can supply and install tracks, turntables, hoist units and slings. The following information is useful in clarifying ceiling hoist considerations and the installation process.

Did you know Qspec can also design ceiling hoist track configurations to suit the existing floor plan and unique needs of the client?
The first thing that needs to be assessed prior to the ceiling hoist installation is the structural integrity of the building the hoist is being installed to. If required, a Form 15 will be issued by an Engineer which is used to certify the structure. At times the existing support is adequate but sometimes additional structural support will need to be added. Qspec are experts at preparing the environment to plan for the hoist install. Once the installation is ready to begin Qspec will install all hoist components. Depending on the complexity of the structure and hoist configuration this may take between 2 – 5 business days. Upon completion of the installation, the tradesmen will load test to the specified safe working load before handing over to the client.

Qspec can source and supply a range of suitable slings in many different fabrics and sizes.
