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.
The power supply to our chandelier or light fitting is by 3-core 1.5mm 2 cable and patented circular contacts. To ensure safe operation the LightRig Chandelier Hoist/Winch automatically disconnects the power supply to the chandelier or lighting fixture during winching.
The LightRig chandelier winch is ceiling mounted, the steel wire rope securely connects to the chandelier and terminates to a plastic-coated disc and eyebolt used to attach your own light fitting.
Our LightRig Chandelier Winch is available is 2 models with different load capacities and lowering distances dependent on the weight of your chandelier.
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.
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.
