Chandelier winches for easy maintenance of chandeliers . These chandelier winches make light bulb changing and cleaning of chandeliers an easy and far safer task. The 50-4, 100-5, 100-8, 150-11 and 250-12 winches are operated by a remote control unit which makes the operation of the chandelier lift very straightforward. The model 200 and model 300 winches have an optional smart lift controller key pad which can be located in a convenient position. All the winches are of a compact design and can be easily installed in the floor void between the ceiling and floorboards. If access to the floor void is not possible then the winches can be mounted directly on the ceiling and a decorative cover can be supplied to hide the lighting winch. Where space is a real premium above the winch then the model 200 and 300 winches have a remote mount facility to enable the motor unit to be mounted remotely and just the pulley and contact plate above the chandelier. This is most useful where aesthetics demand the the motor is hidden for example of the chandelier is lifted into a dome. The winches are easy to install and can normally wired straight to the existing light wiring. The model 200 and model 300 chandelier lifts have a separate electrical circuit for the winch motor and the chandelier bulbs which has the advantage that the chandelier can be used on a dimmer switch to adjust the lighting levels. All winches have built in safety mechanisms which operate in the eventuality of a power failure and additionally the electrical supply to the bulbs is automatically disconnected on lowering for safety of operation. These winches will typically pay for themselves in a short period of time by offsetting the costs of scaffolding, access equipment and labour. .
