When choosing whether to use a ceiling hoist, it's important to understand the benefits and cons associated with the different types of systems that can be installed. Where mobile hoists are bulky and take up storage room, ceiling hoists offer a fixed and more compact solution.
When you’re installing a hoist that alters the structure of your facility or property in some way, it’s important to begin by engaging a specialist team, such as HLS Healthcare. We will examine your ceilings, floors, and walls to make sure that the track can be mounted as safely and conveniently as possible. Once we have determined that you have the right structural integrity in your facility to support a tracking system, we will consider how many tracks are needed throughout the property and where they should be located, such as around bathrooms and bedrooms.
Architects and clients need to work together to consider the needs of the end-user, and the structure of the rooms that the ceiling hoist might need to move through. Standard joists in your facility won’t necessarily be strong enough to withstand the weight of a hoisting system and a user combined, which means that you’ll need additional support in place. Usually, in rooms where timber joists have been used in the ceiling, the easiest way to properly install a tracking system is with the use of load-spreading beams that can span over the joists.
