So when the UK’s leading mobility aid manufacturer asked us to design a light powerful hoist we started from the ground up. We undertook a thorough measurement and fitment analysis, testing all suitable estate/hatchback vehicles on sale in the UK .This defined the layout, geometry and power required for the new hoist.
Our new hoist design needed to flexible to fit the range of vehicles so we incorporated a user friendly telescopic articulating arm with a unique safety release mechanism to prevent accidental operation when loaded. A large part of our challenge was to ensure the company could manufacture and assemble their new product in-house, using their manufacturing expertise in cutting and welding. Consequently all components, including the latching mechanism are produced from either stock profiles or laser profiled sheet, then fabricated or bolted together.Our robust design quickly established itself as a market leader, and has been produced for over 15 years.
