Used in diverse work environments, electric chain hoists are designed to lift heavy materials at variable acceleration speeds. Chain hoists are stable and reliable, each with specific modifications for varying use.
Single VS. Dual Brake...What's the difference?
All electric hoist brakes are designed to have a fail safe, spring-loaded magnetic lock which release the brake in case of power loss or malfunction.
This type of single brake is standard and complies with all safety requirements for hoist operation.
A dual brake system is designed with either dual motor brake or a mechanically operated brake that sits in an oil bath and is a “back-up” in case of motor failure.
