Overhead Hoist Systems

Ceiling track hoists and overhead hoist systems give you a safe, quick way to transfer and move people around. Our AirRise and Airglide360 ranges work perfectly together to provide cutting-edge technology to making hoisting as easy and straightforward as possible.

Our bespoke overhead hoist systems are designed and installed by our team of experts. If you’re looking for more information on ceiling track hoists and how they are installed, then take a look at this article.

Airglide360 Hoist Tracking

Just like a train needs tracks to run on, a hoist unit needs hoist tracking to move along. Our Airglide360 track is some of the subtlest, neatest tracking available.

Uniquely, our Airglide360 hoist tracking can be installed inset to the ceiling so it doesn’t have to hang below. This is a great way to keep the space from looking clinical – and it’s particularly infection-control friendly!

The Airglide360 tracking can be used on X-Y systems (otherwise known as a H-frame) to give complete room coverage.

Available in two different sizes, Airglide360 tracking is shaped to provide the smoothest, quietest ride and optimal control when turning corners. With a radius of just 480mm, our curves are available in 15, 30, 45, 60, and 90° models to suit your layout.

Our rail is generally supplied in white, however if you’re looking for a different colour, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

Hoist Gates & Transit Couplings

In any hoist layout where you will be moving between layouts and rooms, there will be a gate system installed to connect the corresponding rails. Our Airglide360 Transit Coupling uses a clever combination of magnets and sensors to lock the track into place when you go to move between systems.

Just pull the track to the right position and it will lock in place using the magnets. The sensors will detect when you are moving through the coupling and unlock it when you have transferred to the other system.

This is a great way to move between different rooms and tracks. The Transit Coupling gives you a safe and secure way to move patients and clients between areas with ease and dignity.

For more complex overhead hoist track layouts, turntables and track switches can be used to suit multiple routes.

Turntables automatically rotate in the track layout so that you can switch between systems with ease. You can choose between three and four outlet options to make the most of your system.

Track switches are exactly as they sound; they switch between whichever system or route you are wanting to take. The whole system is automatic so that you give your complete attention to the person being hoisted.

AirRise Hoist Units

Any ceiling track hoist system will need a hoist unit; and our AirRise range are some of the best ones on the market. With built-in quiet, smooth-rolling twin trolleys, our AirRise units can handle any turns or corners with ease and comfort.

The AirRise range also features soft-start and soft-stop technology, meaning that patients and users won’t have to worry about any jerky or unsettling movements. These hoist units are also fitted with Battery Protection Software, which helps keep hoist batteries in prime condition and even tells you when they need charging!

Our AirRise hoist units are available in different models and weight limits. The number on the end reflects the number of kilograms that hoist unit can lift.

Choose between the following:

  • AirRise200
  • AirRise260
  • AirRise350
  • AirRise500

If you need extra help when moving bariatric patients, there is also the option to include an electric traverse trolley in your hoist unit that will help you to move the unit left and right when there is weight on it. The motor then automatically switches off when there is no weight on the hoist so you can freewheel it back to the desired position.

You can also choose between a 2-point loop spreader bar, 4-point clip-fixing manual spreader bar, and an AirRise Electric 4-Point Spreader Bar to attach to your unit.

Hoist Unit Charging

To make it even easier for people to use, we’ve made it so you can charge your AirRise hoist unit whenever you put the handset in its docking station. This makes it easier than ever to keep your hoist unit powered and ready for whenever it’s needed.

Alternatively, AirRise hoist units can be charged through the track itself if preferred. Simply move the unit under the charging contact, and magnets will lock it into place to charge.

Our clients are given the option of an Innova servicing contract with all AirRise hoist units, keeping them covered for any possible issues. Our servicing and maintenance department can assist with LOLER testing as well as any other necessary annual check-ups.
