Pneumatic Air Chain Hoists

Pneumatic Air Chain Hoists available from RiggingUK

An air hoist is a mechanical chain device that is used in industrial applications to lift heavy objects such as machinery or raw materials.  

An air Hoist is powered by air, reducing the risk of ignition and ensuring safety even when it is used in chemical plants or places where hazardous materials are handled.

Industrial air hoists are designed specifically for industrial and general engineering applications such as automotive plants, chemical plants, foundries, heat treatment plants, paints shops, mines, zinc refineries and acid battery manufacturing facilities. The hoists operate at air pressures of between 4 and 6 bar. They comply with the requirements of ASME B30.16 and EN14492-2. The manufacturing facility producing the hoists is ISO9001, ISO14001 & OHSAS18001 certified.


  • Attaching, removal and transporting of loads or jigs for example.
  • Loading/unloading in a place where hazardous materials are handled


  • Compact and lightweight design
  • Exceptional functionality for operations that require high speed.
  • Can be operated in remote environments because they do not run on electric motors
  • They are typically designed to be low maintenance, impervious to dirt and dust, heat, vapors, high temps, and humidity, and self-cooling
