Electric Chain Hoists

For over 35 years, Redfern Flinn Lifting Equipment has been assisting businesses in Australia across a range of industries with the supply of GIS electric chain hoists and telescopic hoists. We stock a range of models that we can tailor to accommodate your lifting requirements – whether it be the height of the lift that you need, the hoisting and travel speed, or your need for a specific operation. GIS hoists are Swiss made and are synonymous with quality, reliability and lifetime value for money.

The Benefits of GIS Electric Chain Hoists

A GIS electric hoist offers a variety of features and benefits. Among them are:

  • Strong, Swiss quality construction, which is easy to maintain.
  • Designed for heavy industrial use. Each GIS chain hoist is robustly constructed with cast aluminium housing for maximum strength. This will provide your company with reliable, efficient and low-cost lifting for many years.
  • Wide range of electric chain and telescopic hoist capabilities to cover a multitude of lifting and moving needs, with load capacities from 40kg to 5,000 kg, various speeds (including single speed, two speed, normal, fast and high speed), and height of lifts available up to 120 metres, ensuring you don’t pay for excess chain that you don’t need.
  • Special chain hoist ranges for low headroom situations, corrosion resistant requirements, workstation models and synchronised lifting.
  • Cost-effective, with electric hoist options available to suit a range of budgets.
  • Availability of equipment and spare parts is assured.

Comprehensive Features to Get the Most from Your GIS Electric Chain Hoist

GIS electric chain hoists and telescopic hoists are designed for tough working conditions, particularly the motor. They’re robustly constructed and have an outstanding service life, guaranteeing years of reliable use. Normal, fast and super fast speed models are available, in both single and dual speed as well as with special voltages. Single phase models are standard, as are geared limit switches. Lifting heights up to 120m are available, and accuracy for repetition is assured.

Our GIS hoist range also includes low headroom options, particularly well-suited to buildings or environments where lower ceiling heights prevent using standard electric chain hoists. These low headroom hoists have load capacities up to 3,200 kg. A range of push and electric trolley hoist options are available with the GIS-CH low headroom electric chain hoist.

GIS Entertainment Hoists

GIS climbing and lifting hoists are widely used in the Australian entertainment industry in many theatres, stages and film studios, as they fully meet VPLT standards for entertainment industry chain hoists and telescopic hoists, including BGV-D8, BGV-D8 Plus and BGV-C1.

These GIS hoists can handle loads up to 2,000kg and are quiet to operate, which means they can be used for raising and lowering sets during performances. With lifting heights up to 120 metres, the GIS range of entertainment hoists are extremely reliable, cost-effective and very versatile. They can be operated motor up or motor down, either directly or through an external controller.
