CARLO Alu, Classic 185

Loop Sling Hoist

The CARLO Alu, Classic 185, is characterised by an extremely light but nonetheless very stable aluminium construction and offers maximum safety and comfort to your residents and your nursing staff.

The lifting arm with a 4-point sling spreader bar can be lowered to the floor by means of a hand control which ensures that a person who has fallen to the floor can be safely and easily lifted by just one staff. The carrier frame can be spread electrically and is thus very comfortable to operate. Due to the low height of the carrier frame, the CARLO Alu, Classic 185, can easily pass underneath both bathtubs and care beds.

The stable sling bow is suitable for all loop slings, is provided with a safety locking mechanism to attach the slings and is characterised by a patent-pending adjustment option to reduce rotation.
