ASG stocks and installs a wide range of winch sets designed to aid raising and lowering equipment that is otherwise too heavy for a rope set. Winch sets are ideal for lighting barrels and tracks that do not tend to need altering during a performance where speed would otherwise be a consideration. Manual winch sets can also be used for other applications such and raising and lowering access hatches, reefer curtains and chandeliers; ASG has even installed a drawbridge entrance in a shopping centre complete with raise and lower winches.
Manual winches are simple in design and execution with multiple steel wire ropes running via pulleys, terminating to a suspension barrel or other equipment and being held by a self-sustaining winch at the opposite end. There are several different variants of manual winches, the most common being the drum winch, and these can be designed and installed to specification. Manual winches can also ensure that multi-line flown equipment raises and lowers perfectly level and cable management can be provided where necessary.
ASG can design and install a manual winch system to fit your each and every need and can offer a more cost effective method for raising and lowering equipment. For more information or to book a site visit, please contact us.
