Is Your Back Standing Up To The Strain?

Rooftiling is perhaps the most physically demanding occupation in the building industry. It requires a considerable amount of heavy lifting with much of the work being done in a stooped or bent over position.
At Hytile we are acutely aware of the need to produce equipment that helps keep back strain and physical effort to a minimum, equipment that is also safe, effective and user-friendly.

If you’d like assistance setting up your machine on the job, consider using a Hytile Elevator Lifter. This useful device allows one man to lift the longest Hoist or Elevator to roof level with no back strain.

The Lifter is clamped onto a rafter and a nylon rope is dropped down and tied on to the Elevator. By pumping the lever your Elevator is easily lifted to roof level.

Regular maintenance on your hoist will save you time and money
Worn trolley wheels can wear out the tracking on your hoist, just as dented, damaged hoist sections can shorten the life of your trolley wheels – so it pays to keep them both in good working order.

To get the most out of your trolley wheels, regularly inspect the tracking to ensure that it is free from dents and debris.
When new trolley wheels are fitted, straighten the wheel supports and manually run the trolley along the full length of the tracking to ensure it moves smoothly..
