A lightweight, 3.6m GL12 material hoist was hired for Kennards Lift & Shift to help replace an exhaust fan in the garbage compaction unit at one of Sydney’s largest hospitals.

Allstaff Airconditioning has the maintenance contract for air conditioning and ventilation at St Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney. The air conditioning system at the hospital has been maintained by the company since its installation eight years ago.

Allstaff Airconditioning crew is on site full-time to carry out periodic service and respond immediately to any problems given the critical nature of the equipment.

Service manager Steve Duncan said that they hired equipment from Kennards when their own equipment was fully utilised or when a more specialised model was needed for projects ranging from residential apartment buildings and office complexes to shopping centres and government buildings.

He explains that Kennards’ extensive network of branches enables them to get equipment quickly and easily.

Kennards Lift & Shift offers a comprehensive range of mechanical hoists designed for limited access and heavy lifting applications:

  • GL12 material hoists can lift up to 159kg to a height of 3.6m
  • GL10 material hoists have the same capacity and lift to 3m
  • T-bar lifts in 2.3m and 3.3m models have the same 100kg capacity
  • Gas hoists in 3.8m and 5.6m models have capacities of 136kg and 116kg respectively

Kennards Lift & Shift operates equipment hire centres in Brisbane, Sydney, Wollongong, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
