Entertainment chainhoists GIS



The induction-hardened and manganese-phosphated, black-matte profile steel chain offers approximately 15% higher load capacity with the same nominal diameter compared to a round steel chain. The larger cross-sectional area reduces wear and increases the chain's lifespan. The manganese phosphating enhances corrosion resistance and running properties. The load hook is equipped with a damping system and a sturdy cast latch that securely attaches to the hook.



LPM, the smallest chain hoist in the LP family, lifts an impressive 400 kg (D8 plus: 250 kg) with a mere 12 kg of weight. It is modular in design, compact in size, and therefore suitable for installation in trusses.



Due to the design of the chain hoist with protection class IP65, it is inherently protected against dust and jet water. The LP is therefore ideal for outdoor use, even under the most challenging conditions. At open-air events or on concert tours, riggers appreciate the weather resistance and reliability of this electric chain hoist.



All LP electric chain hoists are equipped with a 3-stage, self-contained gearbox. The helical gearing with geometric optimization provides extremely smooth operation, allowing for the movement of loads during events. Thanks to the protection provided by the cover and chain hoist housing, the LP has a sound pressure level of only 60 dB, making it one of the quietest motors on the market.
