SafetyLiftinGear's chain blocks and electric hoists were recently used to dismantle a large goods lift at a hotel on London's Park Lane.
Elevator Solutions Ltd, a Kent-based company who specialise in decommissioning lifts, were asked to remove the 8 tonne lift car and all shaft pulleys. After carrying out an initial site survey and tests, the Elevator Solutions team used a 10 tonne chain block from SafetyLiftinGear to tackle the lift car.
