Customer's benefit

The GP electric chain hoist was designed for the discerning user. It is simple in its structure and does not contain any sensitive electronics, which minimizes the risk of operational interruptions. The hoist is characterised by quiet running and is made for longevity whilst working hard thanks to the powerful motor with low operating temperature. Maintenance is easy, quick and needs no special tools.

Profile steel chain
The case hardened and manganese phosphated profile steel chain provides about 15% more capacity at an identical nominal diameter compared to the traditional round steel chain. The larger cross-sectional area reduces wear and increases the lifetime of the chain. The load hook with stable, guided hook latch and safety rubber buffer provides maximum safety.

Polygonal connections
The inner part of the modularly designed chain hoist embodies real innovation. All shaft-hub connections are built to a polygonal design. This allows significantly faster disassembly and assembly during maintenance and thus reduces service costs. The service cost can be considerably reduced due to time savings.

Protection class IP65
A feature of the hoist and the control switch is the protection class IP65. It is dust proof and protected against water jets. As it is compact and robust designed, the GP is best suited for dusty environments as well as for outdoor operation.

Control switch
The control switch fits comfortably in your hand and is ergonomically designed. It is robust, impact resistant, safe to operate and controlled by 42 V low voltage. Push buttons placed in parallel increase the ease of operation. The external strain relief protects the control cable.

For these reasons, GIS electric chain hoists are used everywhere, where process safety of crane systems is important: in the hard three-shift operations in the automotives and other high production industries, in dusty or chemical aggressive environments, for outdoor use, for the entertainment industry or for extreme lifting heights in wind power plants. GIS electric chain hoists and trolleys are made to high standards. We grant a 3-year guarantee for our GP chain hoists.
