Advantages of weight beam arrangement:

  • Splayed apart weight beams stabilizes the hoist
  • Weight beams are angled away from the roof deck and act as side guardrails towards the front of the hoist
  • Side guardrails help protect worker falls from the roof edges
  • Weight beams touch deck in 3 places leaving hoist in place during roof tearing
  • Roofer Hoists are designed to meet or exceed the requirements of OSHA, Part 1926-500/501/502, Subpart M & Appendix B, Fall Protection.
