Our Tractel™ Solution Offering

Tractel™ is a world-leading safety specialist providing reliable, innovative, cost-effective working-at-height solutions and services. These solutions are used in many end-user applications, in particular in industrial, construction, energy, telecoms and infrastructure projects.

Dual driven tirak®has self-powered reelers that automatically collect the wire rope at the same speed as the hoist without the need to add motors, clutches and circuits.

Because the dual reelers do not collect the wire rope under load, we eliminate crushing and strand damage and prolong the lifespan of the wire rope.

Built-in safety devices constantly monitor all operations for complete operator safety. Integrated safety features include an obstruction sensing device, overload detection, centrifugal brake, electromagnetic motor brake and, in the event of loss of power, a manual controlled descent device.

Material hoist can be incorporated into the design for building maintenance or final construction.
