Bishop’s very own Chain Block has finally arrived!

The Bishop BL-C1 chain block is of exceptional quality and boasts a higher power to weight ratio than the other quality hoists available on the market.

The design and specification of the Bishop BL-C1 chain block includes:

  • Range: 500kg to 10000kg.
  • Light Load Capability: the BL-C1 is tested and certified at 2% of the chain block rated capacity.
  • Safety Latches: BL-C1 top and bottom hooks are fitted with heavy duty cast steel latches, creating a strong and robust hook closure.
  • Overload Indicator Marks: BL-C1 chain block top and bottom hooks have, as part of the hook forging, an overload indicator mark either side of the hook throat. By measuring the distance between the indicator marks, the hook can be quickly and easily checked to see if any stretch has occurred due to misuse or overloading.
  • Hook Housing: BL-C1 top and bottom hook housing are secured with socket head cap screws/hex head bolts and nyloc insert locking nuts.
  • Load Chain: BL-C1 comes complete with load chain that is fully compliant with BS EN 818-7 and finished in zinc/nickel. This extends the lifespan of the blocks and offers a greater degree of corrosion resistance than conventional galvanized load chain.

All blocks come complete with test certificates.

Please Note: Unlike the vast majority of hoists on the market which use poor quality chinese chain, all of the hoists we supply come with load chain that is fully compliant with EN standards.
