Ceiling Hoist Installation Planning

Installing ceiling hoists

In general, most buildings can accommodate a ceiling mounted hoist. At Dolphin Mobility, our team of engineers use a variety of fixings to secure our hoists. The following applications are commonplace.

  • Concrete ceilings
  • Steel webbed joists
  • Cathedral/sloping ceilings
  • Steel and timber I beams
  • Timber joists
  • Suspended ceilings
  • Pitched roofs

Get on the right track

You can choose from many different track layouts for your ceiling hoist. The easiest and most cost-effective tracking to install is straight tracking. However, adding curves and bends will increase room coverage and lifting and repositioning flexibility. Our XY hoist track system is a popular option because it allows for full room coverage. For more details, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We provide:

  • Straight tracking
  • Straight track with 45 or 90 degree bends
  • Room to room track systems
  • XY or H frame tracking systems
  • Turntables
  • Y Junction exchangers
  • Wall mounting
  • Semi-permanent tracking

How much do ceiling hoists cost?

The cost of a ceiling hoist system is determined by whether the track is straight or has bends, the track length, the ceiling material, how many fixings are required and the weight of the hoist and the user. A 3-metre straight track hoist fixed to timber joists or a concrete ceiling is usually less than £2,000. A 3-metre x 3-metre XY system would cost between £2,500 and £3,000.
