An important case for any rigging, light & sound or audio-visual company…the Hoist Trunk! Usually from the Heavy Industrial, Tour Grade or Super Tour specification, due the weight of the hoist and chains. Hoist cases can be produced in singles or multiples, depending on the size of the hoist. The smaller 1/4 tonne models can be 4 way layout, where as the larger 1 and 2 tonne units are popular singles.
Internally, hoist trunks feature a CNC machined ‘cradle’, fabricated from high quality birch plywood. As a rule, at least two main supports are shaped to the same profile as the hoists.
Space is also provided for the chain, hook and chain bag as well as the power inlet connector. In the lid, either a mating plywood cradle of high density polyethylene foam blocks are used to clamp the hoist, ensuring that if necessary the trunk can be up-ended in transit. Stacking caster cups and PAL label dishes are a popular option on all hoist trunks.
Why not get creative and have your next cases in a two-tone colour scheme to match with your corporate identity. It doesn’t add much the the cost but will look great and increase security!
