Personnel hoists are used to move construction workers and materials between floors in high-rise construction projects. Personnel hoists typically have a platform that can hold multiple people, and a cage that surrounds the platform to keep people from falling off. The cage is also used to transport construction materials.
Lifting is the process of transferring a load from one point to another. Hoisting is the process of raising or lowering a load by attaching it to a stationary object, typically using ropes or chains. Construction workers often use hoists to raise and lower heavy construction equipment or materials.
Most personnel hoists consist of a platform that is raised and lowered by a cable and pulley system. The platform is typically large enough to accommodate one or two people and is equipped with a railing for safety to prevent passengers from falling off. The platform is connected to the main cable via a series of pulleys and is raised or lowered by activating the motor that powers the pulley system. Some personnel hoists also have a second, smaller platform that can be used to transport tools and materials.
