Our electric chain hoists are designed and built in Germany using only the highest quality European components.

With more than 50 years of experience in the design and manufacture of electric chain hoists our range has many features as standard that other manufacturers only offer as extras.

Unique Safety-Brake System

All hoists incorporate a unique safety-break system. In this system the clutch is located between the motor and break in such a way that the break will continue to hold the load safely in the unlikely event that either the clutch or motor fails.

Also due to the compact design of our range of hoists headroom is kept to a minimum to provide the maximum lift height. In addition running noise is kept low due to the use of helical gears made from the highest quality of stainless steel.


Our product range goes from simple systems for conventional rigging to hoisting. All SB models guarantee a higher level of security for working above people with its two separate brakes as well as an emergency and limit switch, higher security factors and many optional equipment details. Computer controls in all possible comfort classes, as well as variable speeds because of integrated frequency regulations round up the program.

An electronic sensing unit can be offered optionally, in our new ENTERTAINMENT STAGEKET versions, we alternatively offer integrated load sensing. In both cases the evaluation is done over internal or external controls

One of our latest developments in this area combines the requirements of our customers with what is technically achievable on a maximum level. The ENTERTAINMENT STAGEKET is the answer to all difficult tasks involving low operating noise, safety and flexibility.
