Hoist UK adapt Eurosystem for low headroom installation

Leading lifting equipment supplier and manufacturer Hoist UK recently supplied and installed a steel Verlinde Eurosystem to Lancaster-based manufacturer A House of Stone to facilitate the safe and easy movement of stone within their workshop.

For this project the customer required an overhead handling system that could safely manoeuvre heavy stone in a reduced headroom operation. The Eurosystem ST steel hollow profile overhead handling system was designed with UKA 40 profile beams and suspended double girder crane which is an application ideal for a low headroom solution.

The workshop’s unique ceiling structure meant that our team needed to design and manufacture a bespoke bracket to accommodate very tight headroom issues. Our engineering team installed the system to a very tight tolerance with just 12mm of clearance between the top of the crane and the underside of the precast concrete ceiling.

The Hoist UK in-house design team produced a sound, secure adaptation to the installation of the Eurosystem ST, designing bespoke brackets so that the system met A House of Stone’s unique requirements. “We understand that every project is unique and standard products aren’t always the best solution. Our team of designers are on hand to work with project managers and produce bespoke solutions that are designed around the specific needs of your project” said Paul Jordan, Director at Hoist UK.

The use of Eurosystem ST in this particular application allows the operator to move the load with very little effort due to the design on the system. Featuring a manual trolley together with powered lift the system provides a flexible, efficient and safe lifting and handling solution with a load capacity of 630 kg that delivers easy, smooth and low-noise movement.

Carl Webster, Director at A House of Stone added “We knew the kind of system we needed but we were aware that it wouldn’t be a straightforward solution because of the limited headroom available in the workshop and the unique design of the ceiling. When we discussed the project with Hoist UK they listened to our requirements and gave us technical advice on the most suitable solution for our needs and their design team quickly developed a bracket that would work with the Eurosystem without compromising the limited headroom available. Their technical knowledge and ability to design and manufacture a solution specifically for our project made this a far easier process than we had anticipated”.
