Air Chain

Air chain
Used in situations where safety is key, Air Chain Hoists get the job done the way you need it. Unlike electricity, compressed air does not generate sparks, making these hoists the perfect choice in a hazardous situation. These units usually use self-cooling motors and variable speed lifting. They are ideal for a situation where electricity just isn’t an option.
