Childrens Hospice Ceiling Hoist – Netherlands

This new Children’s Hospice with Ceiling Hoist Project has 12 rooms allowing for an additional 30 children per year to be cared for in this high profile unique establishment.

Ceiling Hoists (also known as Overhead Hoists) are an integral part of the design and are throughout the new building, transferring by overhead hoist from the bedroom through to the bathroom and living areas. All Ceiling Hoists in this Childrens Hospice Project have the 4 point cradle and the design involves Ceiling Hoist turntables and connections through the door headers.
