Dutch care organisation provides all resident rooms with ceiling hoists
SVRZ, a care organisation for the elderly in the Netherlands, has equipped all 1.450 resident rooms with ceiling hoist systems.
A ceiling lift is 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 patient lift in the ceiling also saves on time and resources, because everything you need to carry out a patient transfer is always close to hand.
It is a well-documented fact that the use of patient lifts reduces the amount of strain, over-exertion and injuries – and this means less sick leave and greater work satisfaction for carers.
Guldmann ceiling lifts are designed for heavy lifting with weight 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 patient handling, lifting and moving tasks without assistance, freeing up more time to care for the individual user.
Effective and thoughtful patient transfers with ceiling lifts
The Guldmann ceiling-mounted patient lifts are 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.

Ceiling lift systems in room-covering or single-rail?
– or a combination of both?
A well-designed rail system is one of the most important considerations
when you are looking for an effective, stable and safe ceiling-mounted track lift system.
In rooms where a lot of lifting takes place, the most appropriate solution is often a room-covering system consisting of two parallel rails and a traverse rail on which the lifting motor 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.
A single rail 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 system can also be used in the same room and situations as the room-covering system – but please note that the layout within the room can be limited by where the rail is located.
- Two systems combined with Combi-lock
You can combine full room coverage and single rail systems in adjoining spaces, using a Guldmann Combi-lock.
The ceiling lift can then easily run from one system to another. And from room to room.
