The four post gantry track system is an excellent option for short term or emergency hoisting requirements. Operators assemble it at chest height, (reducing manual handling risks), before raising the gantry up to its full height of 2.8 metres.The height can be set according to the building requirements meaning low ceilings do not cause any issues.
The gantry track system is completely free standing and requires no structural support from the ceiling or walls. Four adjustable height legs are provided for stability, and the whole system is constructed from lightweight aluminium, making it very easy to transport and assemble.
The bariatric gantry track system is supplied in a room covering, or ‘H’ frame configuration. It is length adjustable on site without the need for tools. The two combinations are as follows.
3.2 x 3.2 – 4.2 metres
4.2 x 4.2 – 5.2 metres
Choice Of Hoist Units
The freestanding gantry track system is typically fitted with the GH1 Hoist which provides a safe and reliable hoist for the track.
The GH1 can have a SWL of either:
175kg (27.5 stone)
200 kg (31.5 stone)
250 kg (39.5 stone)
This range of weight limits creates the ideal solution for the heavier user and for use in situations where a mobile hoist is too heavy to push safely.
The GH1 is a battery powered hoist that charges via a plug in handset. No permanent electrical supply is required making the combination of hoist and gantry ideal for easy installation and removal.
Where a higher SWL is required, the GH1 hoist can be replaced by the GH3, with a lift capability of 350kg (55 stone). This opens up new possibilities for the safe moving and handling of bariatric patients.
The GH1 is fitted with a loop style spreader bar as standard. Subject to risk assessment, this spreader bar is compatible with most loop style slings.
There are 4 sizes of spreader bar available:
– Extra Small – Small – Medium – Bariatric
The two smaller versions make the hoisting of children very safe and secure.
