Ceiling lifts are often the ideal and most effective way to lift and move people. Mounting all the lifting equipment at ceiling height frees up floor space and makes it much easier to get around. A ceiling-mounted lift system also saves on time and resources, because everything you need to carry out a lift or a move is always close to hand.
It is a well-documented fact that the use of ceiling lift systems reduces the amount of strain, over-exertion and injuries – and this means less sick leave and greater work satisfaction for carers.
Ceiling lift systems from Guldmann are designed for heavy lifting with capacities of 175–500 kg / 385-1,100 lbs. They are effortless to operate and provide exceptional freedom of movement. In most cases, this means a single carer is able to carry out day-to-day lifting and moving tasks without assistance, freeing up more time to care for the individual user.

Evolution of Ceiling Lifts
Ceiling lifts ensure effective and thoughtful lifting
A ceiling lift system from Guldmann is an integral part of a complete range of lifting equipment that includes rails, lifting motor, slings and lifting accessories – all designed to fit together.
All this lifting equipment can be combined in many different ways, and makes it possible to accommodate just about every kind of requirement in any building, including private houses as well as residential homes, institutions and hospitals. The system is modular and can be configured in many different ways to comply with specific needs and locations in full.
Identify the need for ceiling lift solution:
- How many lifts are needed each day?
- How long does the lifting take?
- How many helpers are needed?
- Should the ceiling lift system always be available?
- Should the ceiling lift system be available in every room?

Room-covering ceiling lift system
In rooms where a lot of lifting takes place, the most appropriate solution is often a room-covering ceiling hoist system consisting of two parallel rails and a traverse rail on which the hoist is mounted.
Such a setup provides complete freedom of movement along with great flexibility in the actual lifting situation, and the room can be laid out exactly as you wish.
Single-rail ceiling lift system
A single rail ceiling hoist system is ideal for moving people over longer distances, where there isn’t the same requirement for flexibility, such as in building corridors, riding schools or swimming pools.
A single-rail ceiling hoist system can also be used in the same room and situations as the room-covering ceiling hoist system – but please note that the layout within the room can be limited by where the rail is located.
Combination ceiling lift system
- Two systems combined with Combi-lock
You can combine full room coverage and single rail systems in adjoining spaces, using a Guldmann Combi-lock. A safety lock is placed on the traverse rail in the room-covering system, so the lifting unit cannot run off the rail.
A Combi-lock is also placed on the rail from the single track. This locks the traverse rail to the single rail and simultaneously releases the safety lock. The hoist can then easily run from one system to another.
