Our permanent Lifting or Hoist Magnets eliminate the hassle of electric cords and awkward slings. They can’t fail due to power fluctuations. They have been proven safe and reliable for over 30 years. After 100 years, the magnets will still be over 99.5% strong! All lifting magnets use an easy hand release lever and are built to last with stainless steel casings and our high strength ferrite magnets. Use in tandem for heavier loads with a spreader bar. These magnets are also heat resistant up to 600-degrees Fahrenheit.

Are you looking to use a magnetic lifting magnet instead of a traditional hoist?
A magnetic lifting magnet offers the immediate advantage of being able to be place on top of the item to be lifted, thus reducing the potential of damaging the item. If you use a sling or chain to lift your item, the item is at greater risk for damage due to the pressure applied by the chain or sling.
Since the hoisting magnet or lifting magnet is on top of the item, it can be a safer way to lift because there is less “hands-on” interaction and less chance of injury.
A magnetic hoist is also often easier to move around and stores more easily than a hoist, chain, and sling.
Surface condition and air gaps are important considerations when considering hoist magnets. Magnetic fields are disrupted by air gaps that may exist between the magnet and the item being lifted – especially when lifting items with irregular or “bumpy” surfaces. Old paint, rust, dirt, paper, padding or other materials on the surface can effect hoisting magnets ability to lift.
Likewise, the better the hoisting magnet can come into contact with the item to be lifted, the stronger it will perform. A flush match, or flat to flat match will produce the best results with hoisting magnets.
