Whether you choose an electric hoist or a hand chain hoist, both types can lift your truss construction safely. They are often used in combination with Lifting Straps that are placed on one side of the truss or go through the truss on one side, and are attached to the hoist on the other side. A bow shackle might be placed in between. You can attach the hoist to the ceiling by means of beam clamps. Also check out the rest of our hoists and rigging materials.
