Product description

BL1

The BL1 is a 3-part lifting column suitable to use in, for example, hospital beds, nursing home beds, treatment chairs, couches and dental chairs.

The lifting column is compact and has a long stroke length. The 3-part guidance enables an overlap between the individual profiles, which ensures a high degree of stability.

The lifting column has an open spindle actuator with a chain drive inside which is practically noiseless.

The BL1 is available with a cable integrated inside the column which enables connection of a hand control or a foot switch from the top or bottom of the column.

As such, the cables are hidden inside the column. It is possible to connect the control unit and motor cable on the top plate but only the motor cable or control unit on the bottom plate.

The integrated cable makes the column easy to fit into an aesthetic design of applications and easy to clean. 

Among the benefits are:

  • Short installation dimensions and long stroke length are possible
  • High degree of stability
  • Low noise level
  • Exchangeable cables
  • Max. thrust: 2,000 N
  • Max. speed: 18 mm/s
