Hoists, Slings and Scissor Lifters
Lifting technology is now more advanced than at any time in history, with off-the-shelf solutions available for many complex applications. These solutions include cranes, hoists and slings, winches, jacks, scissor lifters, and many other types of devices that are often purpose-built for common tasks. To the casual observer, it might seem that the days of traditional lifting gear, such as lashing tools and equipment, are drawing to a close.
In fact, the opposite is true. The larger and heavier the loads which can be moved and transported by such appliances as mobile cranes and forklift trucks, the more extensive the measures to keep those loads stable and safe. Also, just because a product is handled using a purpose-built vehicle at one end of the supply chain, doesn’t mean the same equipment will be available at the other end. However, a well-designed lifting system using top quality rigging equipment will likely be able to handle any load its operators will reasonably require it to, and what’s more, it will prove to be highly adaptable too. If your facility must handle items of all shapes and sizes – for example, a general goods warehouse – deciding “I’ll maintain a good selection of rigging equipment near me” is the best way to be prepared for whatever task you may be faced with.
Chain Lifting Equipment
Chain lashing equipment for the road haulage industry is a good example of how practice have advanced. Loads which at one time would have required special measures to move are transported on the UK motorway network, quietly and without fuss. At one time, it may have taken a low-loader trailer, a powerful all-wheel-drive ballast tractor, and a police escort to get certain large items to their destination. These days, the same items are carried on standard trucks and handled by a single operative, and most of us never ever notice them. This is because reliable lashing equipment has made it possible to safely transport heavier loads than ever before using standardized handling practices. The same is true of other lifting and handling operations.
