The Challenge

The simulation room at the Airbus facility in Stevenage has been designed to mimic the terrain on Mars and maintaining this environment is paramount. One of the key features in the design process of this project was the focus on cleanroon standards and to ensure our bespoke elements had a high standard of compliance.

The Solution

Working directly for Bouygues Energies and Services, Hoist UK designed and manufactured a bespoke cleanroom standard monorail hoist from our hygienic and clean room range which had some bespoke designed unique features for this very unique application.

The Electric Belt Hoist had a 1.6 tonne safe working load with 5.8 metres height of lift and all external surfaces of the hoist were polished stainless steel 316, with minimal horizontal surfaces to help maintain the cleanliness level of the room for the application. The unit was fitted with an infra-red remote control system for easy operation.

The hoists lifting medium was a dyneema belt which is a non-metallic, natural fibre which does not require any additional lubrication, so is ideal for this type of application where cleanliness is a key feature of the required design.

Normally, an electric chain hoist or electric wire rope hoist would be used for this type of application, but these types of hoists all need lubrication on the chain or wire rope, which is not desirable or permitted in order to satisfy the cleanliness levels required for this environment.
