Entertainment industry

In theatres, schools, sports centres, multi-purpose halls, arenas, convention centres, TV studios or concert tours GIS electric chain hoists are in use worldwide. They are quiet in operation, light and compact, which is why they are ideally suited for the special requirements of the entertainment industry. Whether as a permanent installation in opera houses such as Zurich, Helsinki and Sydney, in O2 arenas like Berlin or Prague or as a climbing hoist in mobile events: our customers appreciate the reliability and operational safety of GIS electric chain hoists and the corresponding durability.
