Ceiling Hoist Fixing Types
Ceiling Hoist Fixing Types Explained
OpeMed offer many different ceiling hoist fixing types for a Disabled or Patient Ceiling Hoist (also known as Overhead Hoist).
Wall Fix Ceiling Hoist
If the ceiling fix is not an option, OpeMed can install the track using wall fixings. These are either a
-Wall bracket onto a solid or load bearing wall, or
-Wall post for a partition wall where the wall post runs down the partition wall and transfers the load onto the floor. For the Wall Post the partition wall must be “tied” at top and bottom. If there is a skirting board that cannot be altered or curved lino flooring then a bespoke wall post can be made to curve around.
Ceiling Fixing the Overhead Hoist
The standard method of installing an overhead (or patient ceiling hoist) is onto the Ceiling. OpeMed’s unique in-track bracket ensures no ugly bracket or fixing can be seen and allows quick and easy removal of the track if it ever needs repositioning.
Suspended Ceiling / MF Ceiling installs of Patient Ceiling Hoist
OpeMed are experienced at installing overhead or patient ceiling hoists onto suspended ceilings, whether a tile and grid or MF ceiling. If the void to the structure is over 300mm we normally install additional lateral braces to prevent sideways movement.
Non Standard Ceilings
OpeMed can provide solutions for nearly all non-standard ceiling types when installing an overhead or patient ceiling hoist, whether a sloping ceiling, glass ceiling or ceiling with different levels.
OpeMed specialist in manufacturing bespoke solutions when the standard solution will not work. It might be a glass wall where a frame is required, a roof pyramid, working around asbestos or a temporary building. Please contact our Technical Team to discuss how we can help. The earlier OpeMed are involved the more cost effective the solution will often be.
