Products for Hazardous Environments
Columbus McKinnon's explosion-proof and spark-resistant air chain and wire
rope hoists are ideal for environments with high levels of explosive gas,
vapor or dust. Designed to help prevent catastrophic events and keep operators
safe, some of the company's most popular explosion-proof and spark-resistant
hoists include the Yale® Cable King and Global King, Shaw-Box® World Series
and Budgit air chain hoists. With engineered configurations, these hoists are
well suited for offshore platforms, refineries, pipelines and downstream oil
and gas processing facilities.

Columbus McKinnon also manufactures low-headroom hoists, including the Zephyr
from Chester Hoist, to help overcome the challenges of confined workspaces in
offshore applications. We also offer rack and pinion trolley drives and track
clamps that keep the trolley secured on the beam and prevent the load from
moving due to vessel motion.
