Line Shaft Hoists

Need a high-capacity solution for vertical loads? Line shaft hoists from Thern Stage Equipment are ideal for venues where horizontal loads aren’t practical.

Product Description

Our line shaft hoists make multi-line lifts easier than ever. These units install easily and use a single motor to drive one drum for each lift line, evenly distributing loading on the grid or building. They are ideal for lifting stage scenery, curtains, drapes, shell ceilings, lighting, and other items. Easy-to-use electric controls and standard four-pole rotary limit switches provide safe and consistent movement.

Made to last, our components are comprised of durable, heavy-duty materials. We guarantee consistent service life for your Thern Stage Equipment line shaft hoist by offering a two-year limited warranty to make sure that you’re 100% satisfied.
