You have

the vision,

we have the know how

However large or small your ceiling hoist project, we are happy to provide  a complete service to designers, builders and users.

Our Symmetrikit sales team are all trained to understand  the needs of clients and carers.

We are happy to advise on the ins and outs of different design options tackling issues such as sling compatibility and day to day use from the outset.

  • Suspended ceilings

In House: design,

installation* and maintenance

Once we have an understanding of what needs to be achieved, our engineering  design team can provide a full liaison and drawing service to provide a well thought out cost effective solution. As manufacturers we can also tackle special bracketry as required and can take on the most challenging room designs including vaulted ceilings, suspended ceilings, composite beams and non load bearing walls.

When it comes to installation, you can be assured that you are dealing with a Constructionline* approved company with directly employed installation teams who are DBS checked and trained to work in both domestic environments and on large institutional projects.

Following installation we offer commissioning, training and planned maintenance/LOLER testing  on both hoists and slings and should your needs change we can quote to relocate equipment as required to ensure that you always get the best from your investment.

*Constructionline approval is required by most major building contractors. Before selecting a supplier, please ensure that they have achieved this status.

  • bespoke systems

  • advice on fixings

Skyframe Track can be wall or ceiling mounted. Free standing options are available where a temporary solution is required  or no permanent fixing can be made. Straight rails can span up to 4.25m between fixings if required*. This extra span length often means that we can install wall to wall without needing extra steelwork in the ceiling.

Symmetrikit Skyframe®

The Skyframe system incorporates everything you could need to create a seamless moving and handling system into your building: curves, straights, turntables, gates, flush mounted or suspended track and power traverse for greater independence.

“H” frames (or x-y systems) are popular as they offer great room coverage and flexibility when it comes to locating furnishings.

When choosing a pool lift, remember that many clients with more profound physical difficulties cannot easily maintain a seating position. For these clients an overhead hoist and a suitable sling will be safer than a pool side chair hoist. Symmetrikit offer a choice of pool slings in including the new wearable hydro gym sling.

* Gates cannot be used with flush mounted “H” systems

The Symmetrikit Skyframe® Hoist

  • Low voltage permanent charging - always ready for use
  • Low maintenance

The Skyframe lifting cassette is a permanent charge system; its 24v battery pack is always being charged wherever it is located meaning no false starts-it is always ready to go; no special charging points are required and no one needs to remember to plug it in. Being low voltage and corrosion free, it is perfectly safe to use for pools and bathrooms.

Skyframe cassettes are capable of lifting 160kg or, for a little extra, the unit can take up to 375kg with appropriate track fixings
