Hoists

When it comes to stage automation, one hoist does not fit all needs. When you choose J.R. Clancy, you can select from several families of stage rigging hoists to meet your creative, technical and budgetary requirements. Custom rigging hoists can also be developed for unique solutions.

  • Helios™ Hoist

    Helios is an economical, automated hoist ideal for smaller venues and available in fixed or variable speeds. The patent-pending drum and innovative brake design offer a compact solution where space is a premium. Helios’ access panel and operation lights provide state-of-the-art diagnostic capabilities with ease-of-use serviceability.
