We were asked to design and install this hoist system, which was required to cover as much of the room as possible.
The classroom has a very high ceiling which was great for the learning environment. In addition, we found that the structure behind the suspended ceiling was not adequate to install a hoist system to.
Using the GoLift 400 with its 28 stone capacity, and a combination of our high capacity track profiles and cleaver wall brackets, we designed a system that allowed us to hang the supporting rails from the sidewalls of the classroom, just below the acoustic paneling.
This allowed the room to maintain its light and airy feel and didn't compromise the acoustic properties.
The system was installed in a single day, with minimal impact on the running of the school
