We were approached by a Lancaster based manufacturer who required a robust overhead handling solution to safely manoeuvre large, heavy pieces of stone around their workshop providing a maximum load capacity of 630 kg.
A House of Stone’s workshop had a reduced headroom working environment with a unique ceiling structure which would require our teams to design and manufacture bespoke brackets that could support an overhead lifting system.
From discussing the customers’ requirements and assessing their working environment we believe that the Verlinde Eurosystem ST steel hollow profile overhead handling system would be the best suited lifting solution.
The system was designed with steel UKA 40 profile beams and suspended double girder crane, ideally suited for low headroom operations.
To work around the ceiling structure we designed & manufactured a series of bespoke brackets to enable to safe installation of the Eurosystem ST.
Our engineering team installed the system to a very tight tolerance with just 12mm of clearance between the top of the crane and the underside of the precast concrete ceiling.
The Eurosystem ST in this particular application allows the operator to move the load with very little effort due to the design on the system. Featuring a manual trolley together with powered lift the system provides a flexible, efficient and safe lifting and handling solution with a load capacity of 630 kg that delivers easy, smooth and low-noise movement.
“We knew the kind of system we needed but we were aware that it wouldn’t be a straightforward solution because of the limited headroom available in the workshop and the unique design of the ceiling.
When we discussed the project with Hoist UK they listened to our requirements and gave us technical advice on the most suitable solution for our needs and their design team quickly developed a bracket that would work with the Eurosystem without compromising the limited headroom available.
Their technical knowledge and ability to design and manufacture a solution specifically for our project made this a far easier process than we had anticipated”.
“We understand that every project is unique and standard products aren’t always the best solution. Our team of designers are on hand to work with project managers and produce bespoke solutions that are designed around the specific needs of your project”.
