It is a world first and truly safe revolutionary alternative to the traditional Gin Wheel. It enables the safe raising and lowering of materials on site and has been developed with full co-operation and input from the scaffolding industry.
Loads of up to 50kg can be quickly raised with less effort and greater control, yet let go of the rope and the load will be gently arrested and lowered to the ground automatically at a rate of approximately 1.5m per second. What’s more, the descent can be stopped by simply applying the slightest touch to the rope. This not only eliminates risk, but completely removes all physical strain during the lowering process. All in all, this is a revolution in safety that is set to prevent injury and save lives.
