Innovative Features

The SL range features the new “Perfect Push MKII” patented concept 5 pocket load wheel.

This innovation provides improved chain guiding and flow to help reduce the risk of chain jamming.
This innovation provides improved chain guiding and chain flow, to help reduce the risk of chain jamming.

The design of the new “CHAINFlux MKIII” chain guide in the SL range provides horizontal flow of the load chain as it comes off the load chain pocket wheel.

The high strength aluminium construction of the chain guide allows for a smoother flow of the chain into the chain collector and like the new pocket wheel design, helps reduce the risk of chain jamming.

The LIMITFlux is a built-in safety device housed inside the chain guide (only available on version B – low voltage control hoist models) that’s allow to control setting of hook position in industrial suspension or climbing configuration.

The setting of the limit switch is operated by two magnetic rings (upper and lower) which can be easily moved and set along the lifting chain (click here for video demonstration)


The Stagemaker SL is available for use as a climbing hoist (motor down) or as an industrial suspension hoist (motor up).
