{{this.show}} {{this.hide}} G-ForceŽ Intelligent Lifting Devices

G-Force® Intelligent Lifting Devices image

G-Force® Intelligent Lifting Devices

Gorbel's G-Force® Intelligent Lifting Devices enable operators to lift and maneuver naturally, as if the devices were an extension of their arms. There are two G-Force® models to choose from: the Q and the iQ. The Q model is our feature packed base model. It offers the same speed and precision as our higher-end iQ model, but without the added Input/Output features that the iQ offers. The iQ model offers a wealth of additional intelligence features.

G-Force® technology fills the void between traditional lifting devices and completely automated robotic solutions. These devices use the human''s intelligence and adaptability for guidance but the work is done by the device.

h All of Gorbel's G-Force Intelligent Lifting products come with float mode as a standard feature.

{{this.show}} {{this.hide}} Handle Accessories

Pendant Handles image

Pendant Handles

This handle is a two-button infinitely variable control handle for use with our G-Force® and the Easy Arm™. It is a no-charge optional alternative to our standard G-Force® slide handle.

The buttons of the G-Force® Pendant Control require less than one pound of force to depress, making it up to 70% easier than traditional pendants. This reduces the potential for fatigue and repetitive stress injuries of the hand and wrist.
Force Sensing Handles image

Force Sensing Handles

The new Force Sensing Handles for Gorbel''s G-Force product line offer versatility in ergonomic lifting. Compared to standard slide handles, which use displacement of the handle to initiate upward or downward motion, the new design senses force applied without any handle motion. This creates a versatile option for tooling, or elongated handles that perfectly serve applications with a wide range of motion.
Slide Handles image

Slide Handles

The in-line slide handle allows the operator to get close to the load for more control and precision.

The remote mount slide handle offers the same smooth control as the slide handle, but accommodates set-ups where the operators can't be close to the load.
Soft Touch Pneumatic Handle image

Soft Touch Pneumatic Handle

The Soft Touch Pneumatic Handle is used to control any air or electric powered device or to control end effector tooling for the G-Force and Easy Arm. A common handle base for air or electric applications gives you design commonality and flexibility, whether your application requires air valves for direct control of end tooling, or electric switches to activate your G-Force and Easy Arm iQ inputs.

{{this.show}} {{this.hide}} Fall Protection

Tether Track Fall Protection Systems image

Tether Track Fall Protection Systems

A Fall Arrest System is an active means of protecting workers from injury due to falls. A complete personal fall arrest system includes an anchor, a body harness and a connector- such as a shock-absorbing fall arrest lanyard or self-retracting lanyard (SRL).

Using a Gorbel Tether Track™ Rigid Rail Fall Arrest System as your anchor provides workers with a high degree of mobility and freedom, while preventing falls to lower levels. Standard systems are designed to accommodate multiple workers, each weighing up to 310 pounds with tools.

Gorbel Tether Track™ Rigid Rail Fall Arrest Systems provide a reliable and cost-effective solution for reducing the risk of injury in elevated work environments. Available in various configurations, including multiple track profiles and support center distances, fall protection can be easily customized to fit every budget and application. All systems are designed by qualified engineers to meet the OSHA 1926 Subpart M construction standard, as well as the ANSI Z359 Fall Protection code.
Bridge Systems image

Bridge Systems

CEILING MOUNTED SYSTEMS use the structure for support, as the rail is mounted either perpendicular or parallel to the ceiling beams. Should overhead obstacles be present, drop rod hangers with sway bracing can be supplied so that the system avoids these obstructions.

FREE STANDING SYSTEMS may be preferred whenever floor space is readily available to install column supports, when changes in work practices are anticipated, and when a building structure isn''t available. The flexibility of free standing systems allows them to be easily modified and moved should processes or fall protection needs change.

Multiple bridges can be supplied for both ceiling mounted and free standing systems, thus allowing multiple workers to utilize the system simultaneously.
Free Standing Cantilevered Monorail image

Free Standing Cantilevered Monorail

Free standing cantilevered monorails are available in heights up to 26 feet to effectively protect workers maintaining, inspecting, or loading/unloading railcars, tankers or flatbed trucks.
  • Standard heights from 16'' to 26'' make system ideal for applications such as rail car or flatbed loading and unloading
  • Standard lengths up to 204'' ; Single and Dual Track Styles

Ceiling Mounted Monorail image

Ceiling Mounted Monorail

When floor space is at a premium, ceiling mounted monorails can provide unparalleled fall protection while maintaining an open floor plan for material handling, production, or related activities. Ceiling mounted monorails use existing support steel for overall anchorage strength, and are ideal for production facilities and warehouses with tall ceilings since column support is not needed. Even if the facility has standard ceiling heights, the compact, low-profile design of ceiling mounted monorails provides full protection without headroom concerns.
Fold Away System image

Fold Away System

The concept of a Fold-Away Fall Arrest System is simple: Deploy it when you need it, and fold it back when you''re done, maintaining productivity without compromising safety. The Tether Track'' Fold Away Fall Arrest System is the perfect solution for work cells requiring access to overhead cranes, when valuable floor space is limited, or when infrequent fall protection is necessary.
Swing Arm System image

Swing Arm System

The Tether Track™ Swing Arm Fall Arrest System from Gorbel provides circular or semi-circular fall protection with a compact footprint. Versatile and infinitely variable, simply position the swing arm over the work space and swing it out of the way when not in use.
Single Pole Systems image

Single Pole Systems

When numerous obstacles exist in the work space and standard multiple-column systems are not practical, single pole systems provide a convenient alternative. Used regularly in tank car servicing or heavy-duty truck securing and tarping areas, single pole systems require only a single foundation. Standard span lengths from 10' to 53' mean the system can be designed to meet the requirements of most loading/unloading and maintenance facilities.
