We were contracted to install a lifting system for safety nets and textiles in front of the glass sections by the restaurant.

The challenge in this project was to get the lifting points in the right places. Because of this the six 10m long HEB140 had to be mounted with special brackets between the existing roof beams of the arena. On the beams we installed six GIS LCH500 chain hoists that raises truss with safety nets and other textiles for the various events.

A wireless FlexControl system gives the customer great overview.

The project also included mounting of a large number of motorized darkening blinds in front of large glass sections in the arena.

Through the years we have been back to Göransson Arena regularly for maintenance and small upgrades.

The arena is today one of the venues with the largest lifting capacity in northern Europe. The 72 fixed chain hoists with a capacity of 2000kg each, is controlled by an advanced control system with positioning and load monitoring. It is possible to maneuver up to 24 hoists at the same time. The maximum lifting height is 28 meters. All-in-all the roof has a maximum load capacity of 144 tons.
