The Requirements

The veterinary college contacted Hoist UK looking for a system that would aid in their treatment of equine animals in their specialist medical facility.
The horses needed to be safely lifted from the anaesthetic room, to the operating theatre and out again into recovery. Knowing they needed to do this as safely as possible to maintain their duty of care to the animals, they needed a lifting equipment solution appropriate to the handling needs of the horses.

The Challenge

The challenge in this situation was to fit the hoist in a way that optimised the space in the room to ensure there was no loss of operational floor space, needed for dealing with such large animals.

The Solution

The hoist provided was one of our electric chain hoists with a safe working load of 2000kg, with a powered and articulating carriage so it could negotiate around a curved steel beam with a radius of 800mm.

The curved steel runway beam was suspended from the ceiling of the new operating theatre complex, so that there was no loss of operational area within the facility due to supporting steelwork columns and supplied with a totally enclosed power feed system for cleanliness.

The hoist was also fitted with a radio control system so it could be operated wirelessly by one of the operating theatre technicians.
