Chain hoists

Stage Kinetik stocks more than 180 different electric chain hoists compliant with DGUV V54 and DGUV V17 for operations on and off stage. On the one hand they are useful for installing truss systems at high altitudes, on the other hand they're able to move truss beams with moving lights around a stage for effective lighting in contrast rigid stage lights. Likewise the scenic lifting and lowering of big loads - for example a flying LED-wall - are able with electric chain hoists.

Chain hoists compliant with DGUV V54

All electronic chain hoists are delivered in a transport case. Compliant with DGUV V54 all devices of the chain hoists are constructed with at least a5-fold safety factor. We regularly we check all chain hoists – according to the regulations DGUV V54 and DGUV V17 – for maximum prevention of accidents, and as the circumstance requires we refurbish or even discard them. So we're able to ensure a high level of safety and also minimize failures.
