This system uses a winch to drive a continuous tube that is the same length as the cage and is supported by a 1/4” laser cut bracket with (3) phenolic wheels on which the drive shaft rotates. The cage is lifted by 1/8” galvanized aircraft cable. The cables wind up on individual reels located on the drive shaft at each lift point on frame of cage. From our years of experience and constant product improvements, the package listed below is what we feel most of our clients have required in previous installations. If, by chance, there is an item listed that your facility does not require, it can be omitted. Our kits include all the hardware needed, unless your ceiling has an obstruction that we have not encountered or is very rare.
Complete frame includes: Pulleys, beam clamps, hardware kit, and appropriate amount of 1/4” and 1/8” air craft cable and clamps needed. A custom winch mount bracket which is used for mounting the electric winch to a ceiling truss or concrete, block, wooden or steel wall, allowing final adjustment of winch to prevent any cable rub or drag. Custom beam clamps fabricated to accommodate the different thickness of beams and trusses to support pulley lift points.
