After a two year period of research and development, production has now commenced on our new model Belt Elevator. Hytile’s new BEND model Belt Elevator has an adjustable bend in the top section. It can be factory fitted between 4ft and 12ft from the top end of the elevator (as the purchaser requires). This means the elevator can be extended further up the roof and carrying off tiles becomes much easier. Reversing option is available.

On this new BEND elevator you have a choice of either the popular FOLDING option, or our new design CLIP-TOGETHER sections.

The folding option means that the elevator does not have to be bolted together each job – just unfold, adjust the belt tension, and away you go.

aug07-1The clip-together option will be popular where there is limited man power. Each individual section can be easily handled by one or two men.

The elevator can be assembled very easily – no bolts between the sections – it just clips together.

The time-consuming task of fitting and un-fitting the belt each job is avoided by the use of a two piece belt that remains within the sections, even when the elevator is dismantled.

Monier Roofing in New Zealand have recently taken delivery of one of these new elevators and are extremely happy with their choice. “It’s an awesome machine” says Cory Tauwhare. “It’s obvious a lot of work has gone into it – the boys think it’s brilliant”.

If you’d like information on one of these new elevators please give Gary or Mark a call – they will be able to give you advice and answer any queries you may have.

The Hytile-sponsored award for “Most Outstanding Apprentice” went to Trent Hogan who works for Roof Top Tiling. Apprentice of the Year winner was Luke Murphy who received Hytile goods that were sponsored by the Victorian Roofing Tile Association.

Well done boys – keep up the good work.
