Protecting your outdoor electric hoist from weather and sabotage
Electric hoist devices are highly useful for all types of businesses. They can allow you to move heavy objects with ease, which reduces your labor costs as well as your potential for injuries to your staff and your costomers. Moving heavy objects with an electric hoist also has much less potential for causing damage or accidents to the objects. So, there are a number of reasons to have an electric hoist installed in any business that deals with moving heavy objects frequently.
Electric hoist devices are especially useful for outdoor businesses, because you cannot have a complicated indoor hoisting setup like you can in a warehouse. Many businesses such as construction sites or construction supply depots or landscaping supply depots make use of electric hoists to reduce the stress and strain on their staff and to protect their staff from injuries. Electric hoists can also speed up the rate at which your business can move merchandise to satisfy your customers.
However, when you have an outdoor electric hoist, it will naturally be exposed to all the hazards of any machinery that is placed outside for extended periods of time. Hoists can suffer rusting to their components due to weather damage from rain and snow, as well as mechanical and stress damage from expansion and contraction due to heating and cooling during day and night. Another source of damage is sand and grit that can be blown in from nearby areas or from the materials in your supply yard, depending on the wind conditions of your local area and on the materials that your business works with.
Outdoor electric hoists can also be damaged by other means. Insects can build nests among the components, which can lead to catastrophic failures. If the hoist is not used for a period of time, birds may also nest in it, leading to contamination and mechanical failure as well as a tragedy when the hoist is turned on again if the bird’s nest is not removed. Hoists can also be damaged by vandalism and sabotage by hoodlums if your construction yard is left unlocked. Hoodlums can even end up injured from playing around with an electric hoist, and may be able to sue your business as a result.
So how do you protect an outdoor electric hoist from these sources of damage? There are several methods. One of the easiest is to put a tarp over the hoist when it is not in use, which will protect it from the elements as well as provide some protection from heat and cold. However, you will not be able to use the hoist when it is raining or snowing or when there are heavy winds carrying dust and grit. A more elegant solution that will allow you to use the hoist in all weather conditions is a plastic covering shell that will keep off all rain, snow, and dirt no matter the weather,these are a little more expensive, but they are worth it.
