A versatile construction hoist range for every vertical access need

Since the introduction of the world’s first rack and pinion construction elevator 60 years ago, Alimak has continued to pioneer advances in vertical access solutions for construction sites around the world, across a range of applications including high-rise and low-rise construction, renovation and maintenance projects.

Alimak’s extensive range of construction hoist products are designed to meet and exceed the demands presented by a wide range of building projects, from large to small.

Alimak SC

For a wide variety of building projects, from low-rise to high-rise developments, the Alimak SC range of construction hoists offers a flexible and robust design. Its high adaptability means improved efficiency and productivity across a broad array of on-site functions that rely on hard-wearing vertical access solutions. Built around the tried and proven rack and pinion drive technology introduced by Alimak, the SC range offers a rugged vertical access system with car sizes of 1.4 m (W) x 3.0 m (L) or 1.5 m (W) x 3.2 m (L), payload capacity of 2,000 kg and speeds ranging from 36–90 m/min. The energy-efficient operation further enhances its contribution to improved productivity with heavy lifting power and excellent ride comfort for passengers.

Alimak Scando 450

The Alimak Scando 450 range is built to address logistical challenges such as long wait times that impede progress for both new build and renovation projects across the industry. The robust rack and pinion drive is combined with the microprocessor based ALC II state-of-the-art control system. The Scando 450 is highly adaptable to suit a wide range of needs within an economical solution. Available in single and dual car configurations with car sizes of 1.4 m (W) x 2.0 to 3.2 m (L), payload capacities ranging from 600–2,000 kg, and travelling speeds between 30 and 54 m/min.

Alimak Scando 650 and 650 XL

The Alimak Scando 650 is the most popular construction hoist globally and for a good reason. The car dimensions, speed and payload capacity are ideal for numerous real-world applications in the construction industry, where increased efficiency is a must-have. Car sizes range from 1.5 m (W) x 2.8 to 5.0 m (L) with payloads of anywhere from 1,500–3,500 kgs accommodated, with speed capability ranging from 38–100 m/min.

For the specific demands of high-rise construction projects where vertical access is in exceptionally high order, the Scando 650 XL is designed to transport large and bulky materials efficiently. Car sizes range from 2.0 m (W) x 3.2 to 5.0 m (L), achieving speeds of up to 54 m/min with payloads between 2,400 and 3,000 kg as standard. To further enhance the smooth flow of operations, speeds of up to 100 metres per minute and additional car sizes are also available on request.

Alimak Mammoth

When a construction project calls for the transport of particularly wide and bulky loads, the Alimak Mammoth is up to the task as one of the largest construction hoist available on the market. Suited for efficient, time-saving vertical transport for loads such as external cladding panels and large prefabricated pods, the award-winning Mammoth also provides smooth passenger transportation in large numbers for peak demand and emergency evacuation. Car sizes range from 3.0 to 3.5 m (W) x 4.6 to 5.0 m (L), while a high payload capacity of 4,000–5,500 kg is combined with speeds of up to 30 m/min. What’s more, the modular design and twin mast system delivers flexibility along with fast installation and jumping without the need for counterweights.
