Castor Portable Lift is ideal for occasional lifting needs in a specific location or where it is impossible to install a permanent rail system on the ceiling.
Low weight and high loading capacity
Castor is made of aluminium, which makes it light of its large loading capacity (up to 300 kg/660 lbs). The design is both compact and discreet while at the same time making Castor one of the sturdiest freestanding lift stands on the market. Easy to assemble, move and store. Castor is very easy to assemble and disassemble and, therefore, easy to move to locations where there is a need for lifting.
A gantry hoist is a ceiling track hoist. The only difference is that the cassette (hoist unit) is mounted on a portable frame with legs rather than fixed to a ceiling. Gantries are ideal if you only need the system for a short time. For example, sometimes, we fit a gantry system as a temporary measure before we fit a ceiling track hoist or for clients who do not want any holes drilled into their ceiling or walls.
Gantry hoists are floor-standing frames that can be used with a mains-powered hoist unit or a battery-powered portable hoist unit. They are usually stood over a bed and are valuable for those confined to bed for long periods. While some frames are awkward and heavy to set up, all of the models offered here at Active Mobility Centre are chosen because they are well-designed and boast excellent usability. This often means they are lighter and more manageable. Our gantry hoists do not rely on support from the ceiling, making them suitable for properties where any potential structural issues have been encountered.
