The LightRig has been developed for industrial lighting applications where regular maintenance and cleaning operations can become expensive or difficult due to light fittings being mounted in inaccessible location or where maintenance would cause disruption and inconvenience, and would need to be safely conducted.
The LightRig is a self contained, remote controlled unit that can be ceiling mounted containing a compact motor and pulley mechanism to raise and lower a steel wire rope. The steel wire rope is terminated to a plastic coated disc and eyebolt which is used to attach you own light fitting.
The technical specification for our LightRig Chandelier and Lighting Hoist/Winch:
The LightRig Chandelier and Lighting Winch/Hoist includes a auto stop feature for safety during operation.
When lowering, the lift stops automatically either if the descent is somehow interrupted or when your lighting fixture reaches the ground, whichever comes first.
The LightRig Chandelier and Lighting Hoist/Winch can be easily raised and lowered to the users desired height. The chandelier winch also has the ability to 'remember' the users predefined lowering height so that this can be stored within the system for easy and quick use in future operations.
Dimensions for the LightRig Chandelier Winch and standard mounting option:
The safety locking device provides additional security when the lift is at rest. Special safety locking jaws engage to take the load off the suspension cables.
The jaws remain locked even in the event of a power failure and only disengage when the lift is operated.
Electrical contact is made by way of spring loaded contacts plates within the main unit and fixed contacts in the lowering coupler of the LightRig Chandelier and Lighting Hoist/Winch.
Upon lowering the chandelier winch the internal relay isolates the electrical supply. Once the unit is in a raised position, the relay returns power to the lower contacts.

A chandelier winch is a compact, purpose designed winch used to provide safe access to chandeliers and lighting installations to facilitate easy cleaning, maintenance and light bulb changing. Usually operated by remote control, the winch is able to raise and lower the chandelier at a controlled and safe speed.
Chandelier winches are mounted onto a ceiling and contain a compact motor and pulley mechanism with steel wire rope. The steel wire rope attaches to the chandelier and this mechanism allows for raising and lowering of the chandelier or lighting fixture.
Working with a Design Consultant we were given a brief to design and manufacture a feature lighting scheme for the front entrance of the store using spheres.
The store also wanted a functional system to allow maintenance and cleaning to the normally inaccessible panes of glass at the front of the building and the hope was that this could be somehow incorporated into the atrium lighting solution.READ MORE
