PRG XL Video Invests in New EXE Hoists from Area Four Industries U.K.

PRG XL Video buys Area Four Industries UK EXE Rise Chain Hoists

PRG XL Video, the UK operation of Production Resource Group, LLC, has announced a significant investment with Area Four Industries U.K. to upgrade its hoist stock with EXE Rise units.

In a continuing commitment to update its inventory with the latest rigging, lighting, and video technology, PRG XL Video has chosen the EXE Rise range of chain hoists to update its rental offering. During the development of the Rise hoists, PRG XL Video worked with Area Four Industries U.K. to give feedback on the design and specifications.

The selection of the EXE Rise units followed extensive evaluation of different hoists by a team of PRG XL Video’s rigging experts including Chris Walker, Account Director, Q Willis, Head of Rigging Services, and Richard Gorrod, Head of Event Services.

The units are the new 8:1 EXE Rise Chain Hoists, which are both CE and LOLER (Lifting Operations Lifting Equipment Regulations) certified. This ensures they can be used both in the UK and across Europe, and meet higher safety standards than any other hoist on the market.

“We are pleased to take delivery of our first batch of the new EXE Rise chain hoists,” commented Paul Weaver, PRG’s Head of Asset Management, EMEA. “We selected these hoists to meet increased safety requirements across Europe, which is of paramount importance, and they have the added bonus of being fully compatible with our existing control systems.

“Over the coming weeks, we will be phasing in the new hoists, ensuring we have the newest rental inventory in the industry.”

Antony Elson, Rigging HOD continues: “The EXE Rise Chain Hoist adheres to BGV-D8, IGVW SQ P2 code of practice and is CE compliant. The specification includes a DC double brake, ultimate top and bottom limits, a five pocket load wheel and helical gears. These make it one of the most silent and safe hoists available.”
