    Gantry Hoists for Hospitals

    5th December 2018

    Gantry Hoist – free-standing single rail system

    The freestanding Guldmann patient gantry hoist is great when a high degree of flexibility is needed and it is ideal for short term or emergency hoisting requirements in hospitals. The gantry hoist is completely free standing, requiring no structural support from the ceiling or walls.Two large low rise feet are provide exceptional stability, and the whole system is constructed from lightweight aluminium, making it quick and simple to transport and assemble. The convenient handset of a Guldmann GH1 hoist means a single carer or nurse will have a hand available for the patient at all times.

    Height and Width Adjustable

    Both the height and width of the system can be adjusted within the ranges of 210–280 cm (height) and 250–390 cm (width), and it has a lifting capacity of up to 250 kg. The rail system is made of lightweight aluminum and designed for use with the classic compact Guldmann GH1 lifting hoist. The GH1 is available with a safe working load (SWL) of either 175kg (27.5 stone), 200kg (31.5 stone), or 250kg (39.5 stone)

    Track length options are as follows:

    • 2220mm – 3390mm
    • 2720mm – 3890mm
    • 3220mm – 4390mm

    No Structural Changes Needed

    The system requires no structural changes to the building or room, nor does it have to be permanently fixed to walls or ceilings. This makes it ideal for handling temporary lifting needs – in private homes, for example – where a single carer may need to transfer a patient or other user to and from the bed or chair or to assist with personal care. Being very stable but completely portable makes it suitable for short or long term use.

    Simple and speedy assembly

    The free-standing single rail system is simple to assemble and take down, the operation only takes about 10 minutes and there is no need for specialist tools. As a result, it is ideal for subsequent reuse elsewhere.
