Konecranes’ CLX electric chain hoist has received Special Mention in the 2015 German Design Award competition. The award was given for the design quality of the chain hoist. The German Design Award is one of the most prestigious design prizes and prizes are awarded to high-quality products.

The CLX electric chain hoist series is designed for basic lifting and handles loads of up to 5 tons. The chain hoist is ideal for lifting needs e.g. in general manufacturing. The chain hoist is protected by a robust aluminum housing, which can easily be opened for maintenance work. The ergonomic pendant control is rubber-coated to ensure a firm grip.
