Confine Space Entry Hoist: What is Used for and Types

Confine space entry hoists

Confine space entry hoists are designed for manhole and confined space entry, retrieval, and rescue applications. We have portable hoist systems designed for quick and easy set-up, to permanent installations intended for frequent use.

There are different types of confine space entry hoists, i will highlight some of them.

Types of Confine Space Entry Hoist

Generally, a confined space entry hoist can usually be divided into either:

  1. A vertical entry-type system or
  2. A horizontal type.

Entering confined spaces such as a manhole on a street, vertical confined space rescue equipment is needed. Some confined spaces require entry from the side such as a tank, and for these, you will need a side-entry or horizontal type confined space safety equipment.​
