“This mobile lifter makes it easier for both users and carers to deal with daily situations involving lifting and moving. It may well help prevent work strains and back injuries for our care staff”

Manager, Long Term Care Facility

GL5 Description

“Mobile lifters are particularly suitable in places and situations where there is no ceiling-mounted hoist system within reach. Maybe there is no room for a stationary installation. Maybe the place does not normally involve lifting. Whatever the reason, a mobile lifter is a practical and cost-effective lifting aid and a great means of extra safety”

The GL5 mobile lifters are the floor based alternatives to the ceiling mounted lifting solutions offered in the Guldmann range of products.

What makes the GL5 mobile floor lifters unique is the attention to detail that makes the lifter easy to use and provides comfort and a safer lifting process.

The GL5 lifter has a lifting capacity of 205kg and features electric lifting and width adjustment to allow easy access around chairs, baths and the ability to lift from the floor.

The configuration means lifting capacity is more than adequate, and GL5 lifters are very stable. These lifters have the ability to be charged on or off the hoist to suit various working environments. The low friction castors, ergonomically designed push handle and the lifting design make the lifters easier to manoeuvre. User friendly features include easy to use buttons and indicators and safety features with automatic on⁄off and easy to reach emergency stop ⁄ lowering functions.

  • GL5 handles all the lifting tasks
  • Lifting to and from the floorGL5 can lift directly from the floor to a chair or bed. This makes a GL5 the ideal solution if an unforeseen lifting need occurs where there is no ceiling mounted hoist available. The lower section of the lifter is designed to give the user ample room and the considerable reach of the lifting arm means the user doesn’t feel boxed in.
    GL5 is ideal for use in physiotherapy, where users have to be lifted from, for example, a chair down onto an exercise mattress. The lower section can be placed in the wide position to make sure there is enough room to make the lift directly above the mattress.
