Guldmann Hoists

The range of hoists from Guldmann now incorporates the NEW GH1

NEW Guldmann GH1 ceiling hoist

The Guldmann GH1 is a NEW strong, simple, ceiling mounted lifting module, it was developed specifically for the needs of home care and designed to meet the full range of day-to-day lifting needs in private homes, sheltered housing and care homes. It is a small neat design that will fit well in most locations. In use the GH1 is easy and intuitive to operate.

NEW Guldmann GH1 ceiling hoistThe GH1 provides safe and comfortable transfers, its compact size needs very little space and it is compatible with the Guldmann GH-rail systems and Guldmann Slings and accessories. The hoist can be personalised for the home environment, the side panels of the module can be fitted with a choice of four standard decor panels or customised by end users in the same way as the GH3 rails. Being easy to decorate helps the hoist system contrast, match or blend into the interior design.

Unlike the GH3, the GH1 hoist does not charge through the rail, but docks and charges through the handset. Recharging normally takes 2 – 3 hours, and on a full charge the GH1 module will complete in the region of 55 lifts (at 85kg each) this can last up to two weeks at 4 lifts per day.

The GH1 module is based on the innovative and robust technologies of GH3 lift system motors with a SWL of up to 205kg. The GH1 module is not only powerful but also fast utilising modern NiMH battery technology to power the hoist, allowing lifting and transfer operations to be carried out smoothly and quickly - leaving carers, more time to care.

Emergency stop and lowering are incorporated and simple to use.

Guldmann GH3

Guldmann GH3 ceiling track hoistThe GH3 ceiling hoist system is a state-of-the-art system meeting the changing needs of our customers in today's demanding professional healthcare environments.

This system has the big advantage that it is always ready for use – the lifting modules are continuously charged on the rail. These lifting modules move quietly using only a minimum of current. Transitions between rail sections are virtually unnoticeable, for maximum smoothness. Advanced digital systems provide numerous additional functions, including an integrated weighing system, service management and documentation of usage.

Guldmann ceiling hoist trackingAll these capabilities combine to make the GH3 ceiling hoist system the most cost-effective solution currently available for heavy-duty use in any professional care environment.

GH3 rails can be mounted on ceilings, walls or supporting pillars, with unsupported spans of up to 8 metres. Interconnecting elements such as gates and switch tracks make it easy to configure rail set-ups for virtually any building, space or requirements.

The discreet, modern design can be made to blend into any style of architecture, interior or décor – either in new structures or as a retrofit. GH3 lifting modules can lift users weighing up to 350 kg with one lifting strap and 500 kg with two straps. Lifting speeds are up to 60 mm/sec.

All Guldmann systems have proven to have an amazingly long service life. That’s why they have been designed so the new GH3 lifting modules can be used on existing GH2 rail systems.

Liko (UK) LtdLiko Multirall transportable hoist

Amongst their hoist products is the Multirall Portable/Reversible Overhead Lift System

As a simple, portable overhead lift unit that does not compromise on safety or function, Multirall is unbeatable. In addition, Multirall works perfectly as a room-to-room lift. Liko’s Quick-release Hook system is the key to Multirall’s flexibility. Installation alternatives:
Multirall can be installed on a rail system in two different ways.

  • Hang Multirall in a carriage directly on the rail system. It works exactly like a conventional overhead lift.
  • Mount it the other way, with the strap connector attached to the carriage, and Multirall becomes readily portable. In addition, it enables room-to-room transfers with only one lift unit.

A practical trolley for transfer and storage is available as an accessory.

Lifting capacity: 440 lbs. (200 kg.)

Horcher Lifting SystemsHorcher hoist and track

The Original UNILIFT ceiling hoist series offers nearly unlimited options and has been used successfully worldwide for years. The UNILIFT system consists of various rails, curves, and traverses. It is mounted permanently on the ceiling or wall, to individually fit the dimensions of any room. The components of the system are expandable and match up perfectly. Adjustable switches on the ceiling rails enable patients to move to different rooms on one floor using the lift. These systems have been thoroughly designed, and represent the state of the art in safety technology. Thus, persons with walking impairments can use the lift and the electric motor to move from the bed to the bath or toilet without any problem.

Guldmann Logo


Guldmann ceiling hoists are an integral part of a complete range of well-designed equipment, making the lifting and transferring process of people safe and comfortable for both user and carer.

To be able to work efficiently and safely, you have to choose the correct products, and know how to use them in the best possible way. We offer over 30 years of experience for selecting the right product as well as training programmes for individuals and staff.

This all helps ensure a good return on investment that provides long-term benefits, and more time to care.

GH3 – Discreet, smooth and safe

The GH3 concept is the seventh generation of Guldmann ceiling hoist technology, this breakthrough system is the culmination of 27 years of accumulated know-how and 5 solid years of specialist R&D work.

A completely modular system that provides maximum flexibility with minimum components, rapid cost saving installation and considerable versatility. GH3 rails can be mounted on ceilings, walls or supporting pillars, with unsupported spans of up to 8 metres. The lifting modules can lift users weighing up to 350 kg with one lifting strap and 500 kg with two straps. Lifting speeds are up to 60 mm/sec.

The GH3’s contemporary yet timeless design blends in well with both modern architecture and existing buildings, making it easy to specify solutions for both new projects and retrofits into legacy spaces.

If your ceiling hoist could talk what would it say?

The GH3+ range offers the care lift management (CLM) technology allowing you to access vital information; time of lifts, how long transfers are taking, the height of the transfers and the weight of the transfers. This tool helps follow-up on work injuries or other situations in which the data history is of interest, improving working environments related to the processes.

GH Combi-lock

The system is used to lock the rails together when two rail systems are linked, resulting in a combined rail system between rooms making it possible to provide an easy, swift and comfortable transfer of a person up to 350kg. The Combi-lock is easy and safe to use, with its simple lock system that automatically connects when the rails are correctly positioned it easily meets any need whilst blending in with surrounding architecture.
