Winches for personnel transport - Flexible, practical and safe

Special work in steep shafts requires the safe movement of personnel. The mobile personnel transport system from Kummler+Matter EVT is a safe and modern solution for this. It is offered for rent in ready-to-use form or can be individually adapted in line with the customer's requirements.


Pressure pipelines, pressure shafts and collector ducts tend to rust. Therefore, the pipelines, welding seams and fundamental components must be inspected regularly. Professionally completed corrosion protection increases the service life of such pipelines massively. In order to be able to carry out such special work, Kummler+Matter EVT offers a mobile transport system with winch operation. Due to the vertical and inclined shafts, the construction and work in these areas is risky. The cable winches of Kummler+Matter EVT comply with the complex laws, regulations and guidelines of the controlling body IKSS (Intercantonal Concordat for Cablecars and Ski Lifts). Kummler+Matter EVT offers a complete package:  planning, installation, rental, logistics. This means the workers can carry out their work on the pressure pipelines without any worries.
