FlexiLift ZF1000 / ZF2500

MODELS 693W and 692W

 

Peter Albrecht’s FlexiLift single and two line hoists are zero-fleet models designed so that they can either be mounted right above the suspended load or in a remote location. Lift cables are routed from the cable drum through a fixed pulley that is an integral part of the hoist. The cable position exiting the hoist does not change as cable is wound on and off the drum. This makes FlexiLift a great choice for applications like chandelier lifts, banner hoists (see model 697W), and suspension of museum pieces or other works of art.

Model ZF is a heavy-duty version of our compact and lightweight FlexiLift models 676W and 697W. ZF hoists are built from our commercial and theatrical hoist platform. They utilize continuous-duty brake-motors, worm gear reducers to help eliminate back-drive, upper and lower travel limit switches with back-up over-travel limits, and steel drums with machined cable grooves. They come standard with a reversing motor starter and a keyed wall-switch.

 

BENEFITS

Improve safety and reduce costs
Safely lower lighting for cleaning, maintenance, and re-lamping without the use of a ladder.

Save time and minimize chances for damage during initial fixture installation by attaching top section, raising with hoist and then attaching subsequent sections.

Simplify fixture, banner, and artwork changes.

Provide means of bringing fixtures and artwork closer to the floor for examination and display and for raising them out of the way as needed.

Set independent upper and lower limit switches to prevent fixture crashes at the ceiling and at the floor.

Brake engages at loss of power and only releases when hoist is in operation.

Worm gear reducer helps eliminate back-drive. Many suspended loads will stay in place even without brake engagement.


Simple, low-cost installation
FlexiLift chandelier hoists can be mounted either right above the suspended load or off to the side.

When mounted remotely, FlexiLifts do not require a minimum distance between the hoist and any pulleys required for the application (such as loft blocks mounted right above the load or mule blocks used to route cable around other objects in the space).

Compact design
: 31" L x 21" H x 21" W (78.8 cm x 53.4 cm x 53.4 cm)

Three phase motor voltage is preferred; however, single-phase is available and motor voltage can be specified to match building availability. (Please verify prior to order.)

Long-term reliability
Designed for decades of trouble-free operation with “set-it-once” reliability.
