So, Which Ceiling Hoist Charge Method is Best for you?
One of the common causes of breakdowns for ceiling hoists is the batteries becoming depleted or flat, as it’s important to charge batteries regularly. When choosing a ceiling hoist charge method, you need to consider the environment it’s going to be used in, how staff will use the ceiling hoist, and what your budget is for ceiling hoists and tracks.
Most care environments with regular use of ceiling hoists and a smaller budget will benefit from a dock or handset charge ceiling hoist.
If you have maintenance teams that are happy to carry out minor repairs themselves, then handset charge would be the most suitable option.
Care environments with heavy use, such as Special Educational Needs Schools, might benefit from a continuous charge ceiling hoist if they have the extra budget for this charging method. If the budget is a constraint, then you might find dock or handset charge ceiling hoists more suitable. Medaco has many SEND School customers that use these two charge methods with no problems.
Medaco is a leading supplier of moving and handling equipment to schools, care homes and hospitals. We design, supply and install ceiling hoists and tracks ranging from simple straight track and H systems (complete room covering) to complex layouts for different requirements.
