Beta Max Provides Global Glazing Contractor with Specialty Hoists for WTC Towers in New York

Industry Leader Beta Max delivers lifting solutions by providing the Leo Variable Frequency Drive Hoist to global Seattle based company, Benson LTD, for installation of glass and curtain wall panels on the World Trade Center Tower 4 and the Freedom Tower in New York. The hoists are currently installing glass panels on The WTC Tower 4 and will soon be used to install glass panels on the last remaining floors of Tower 1.

Beta Max's specialty hoist, the Leo VFD Series, provides a smooth controlled acceleration and deceleration that is instrumental for precision placement of larger more delicate materials such as glass, unitized curtain wall, cladding, solar panels, marble, granite, large stones, architectural panels and exterior finish system (EFS). It has all the capabilities of the Standard Leo hoist but has a variable speed controller and two wireless handheld remotes. The Leo VFD hoist system enables you to have multiple rigging options that is less expensive than traditional methods and it's more productive by installing more panels in less time.
