Rustlite Hoists

We have a selection of standard size hoists ( block and tackle ) available to buy or hire: 730 mm tall, 1122mm tall and 1500 mm tall. Each hoist comes with top hanging chain, and a length of chain running through the wheel, with a hook on one end.

Being made from expanded polystyrene, the hoists very light and easy to handle. It is produced with a toughened coating which makes it much stronger than plain polystyrene. Due to the nature of the material, the polystyrene chain offers low noise levels, which can be especially useful for film sets.

Finish Options

The hoists are available in a range of finishes. The "museum / Film" grade hoists have a highly realistic rusty looking finish. We then have the display grade which has less detail, and then the event grade - which is less detail again. We can also work to custom / bespoke finished and designs.
