Our customer was investing a good deal in their property and has hoist systems being installed as part of the work. Early in the project, she requested that we proposed ways to improve the look of the products we were installing for her - this was after all a fantastic opportunity to ensure that her environment was designed to suit her needs for as long as possible, and she wanted to keep her assistive devices as unobtrusive as possible.
We suggested that we could hide the fixed rails of her hoists within the ceiling line and this was agreed to. Working with the builder we visited before the ceiling boards were put up to install the support structure within the floor space and install the fixed rails in such a way that the ceiling boards would be flush with the lower edge of the rail. The rails were protected against construction damage and then, once the ceilings had been decorated we returned the site to install the travelling rails and hoist units.
The final result is a clean design that leaves the ceiling-mounted hoist system as unobtrusive as possible.
