Gantry hoists are a popular short term solution for users that are waiting for a permanent ceiling track hoist to be installed.

This can facilitate discharge from hospital to home without unnecessary delay. Gantry systems are available in single rail or traverse designs to ensure the adequate transfer coverage. A gantry hoist can be a great solution in rented properties where adaptations to the build are not permitted.

At Essential Healthcare we have multiple gantry options available.

Savaria Gantry

The Savaria gantry is manufactured from steel and is available in variety of lengths (2m through to and including 7m), with various height options to suit the ceiling height of the room. The gantry is available in variety of safe working loads, 130kg, 200kg and 272kg, with either straight rail or traverse solutions available, depending on the room coverage is required. The Savaria Monarch fixed or portable motors are compatible with this gantry type.
