U.L. Classified / CSA Approved Traction Hoists

As a user of suspended scaffolding equipment, you want a powered hoist you can depend on; one that's easy to handle, has the capacity you need, and is inexpensive to maintain.

The Tirak X-Series and T-Series traction hoists have all the features you need. These hoists use a unique traction system with a wire rope that passes completely through the machine, rather than it being stored in the machine itself. For this reason, this same hoist can be used for any job from 30 to 1,200 feet and even higher. In fact, Tirak hoists are designed for use on all types of suspended scaffolding equipment including swing stages, work cages, and bosun's chairs. You can choose from electric motors (110, 220, or dual voltage) or air powered motors with lifting capacities ranging from 700 to 1,500 pounds.

For emergency situations, a Blocstop BSO 500 secondary brake is mounted on Tirak hoists as standard equipment. The BSO 500 is mounted externally for easy service and inspection. A centrifugal mechanical brake allows for controlled descent even if power is lost. This means there is no dependence on electrical components for emergency lowering. The Blocstop BS/BSO 500 is a combination brake for a dual wire rope system that provides protection in case of a primary rope failure.

As a leading designer and innovator in suspended scaffolding equipment for over 30 years, Griphoists' products will give you years of trouble free service.
