Tower Hoists

With the Sky Climber Tower Hoist, the rider controls his own ascent and descent with a wireless remote control. Hand or radio signals are no longer necessary and productivity is improved without using a second operator. The speed is regulated to 35 fpm maximum.

It has a mechanical secondary safety brake should the motor brake fail, a top limit switch to prevent the rider from ascending into an upper obstruction, and mechanical controlled descent capability in case of power loss. Additionally, the machine has a very small footprint allowing it to be used in close quarters in the crown.
