International Lifting Equipment, Material Handling Equipment & Fall Arrest Equipment Specialists
We are not an on-line catalogue company; we are a professional lifting equipment & fall arrest equipment company with a great on-line catalogue! Thank you for looking and hopefully requesting a quotation.
We can supply all aspects of lifting equipment to suit almost any lifting application. Our online shop is continually being developed technically and new products from additional manufacturers are being added to our catalogue on a daily basis.
We have an IT Team dedicated to putting new product lines into our online catalogue so please feel free to contact us if you do not see the item of lifting equipment needed.
Lifting Equipment - Primary Equipment Categories
In our online Lifting Equipment catalogue we offer a shop with multiple options for the same range / type of products; for example we may offer 20 or more hand chain hoists for 10 different manufacturers. We at LiftingSafety believe that it is very important we offer a wide and varied choice in quality, price, specification, availability & material etc...; to try ensure that we can always offer a lifting equipment solution to suit your materials handling requirement. Our vast selection means that customers can usually find a piece of lifting equipment to meet their specification, budget and lead time.
Lifting equipment is also commonly referred to as lifting gear, lifting tackle, hoisting equipment, material handling equipment and manual handling equipment, among many other terms and phrases and generally covers a massive range. Below are the main categories of lifting equipment that we offer online:
Wire Rope Lifting / Pulling Winches & Hoists
Chain Hoists; Manual, Electric, Pneumatic Lifting Equipment
In this category LiftingSafety mainly offer chain hoists and lever hoists; both use chain connected to a hook to lift a load and are designed to lift a load vertically. Hand chain hoists can be supplied hook suspended or fitted with a beam trolley and are also known as a block and tackle or abbreviated as HCB’s. Chain hoists can be of manual, electric, pneumatic or hydraulic operation and can be for permanent installation or removed after use.
These are probably the most commonly used item of lifting equipment. Lever hoists also often referred to as ratchet lever hoists or pull-lifts are a best seller from our catalogue. We offer a great choice in all hoisting equipment and distribute from many top quality manufacturers - We look forward to receiving your enquiry!
General Industrial Lifting Equipment
Wire Rope Lifting Equipment; Lifting / Pulling Winch & Hoists
In this range we have accumulated all the equipment that uses wire rope to lift or pull the load. A “hoist” lifts the load and a “winch” pulls or hauls the load; a pulling winch cannot be used to lift a load though a wire rope hoist can be used to pull! The reason for this is that different factors of safety (FOS) are required, for lifting 5:1, though for pulling the design FOS is only 3:1. When pulling remember that the capacity of the winch is the maximum permissible inline load and not referring to the self weight of the piece of equipment being pulled. This may help; dependant on incline and rolling resistance (etc..) the self weight will increase or decrease (E.g. bearings / wheels decrease the effort required to pull the load though an incline will increase the effort needed). A wire rope winch is rated at different capacities dependant on which layer of rope is paying off the drum whereas a hoist is rated at a maximum SWL on any layer, this is because it is rated at the worst case scenario. We offer options operated by hand, by compressed air, hydraulic or electric (single or 3 phase), with a wide variety lift heights (pull length) to suit most applications and environments (inc. ATEX)
Rigging Gear; Riggers Equipment
General Industrial Lifting Equipment
As the name suggests, in this category we offer items classified as “General Industrial Lifting Equipment”. Featuring a massive selection of clamps for lifting and pulling; probably the largest selection in any online shop. We also offer beam trolleys, push, geared (chain) and electric travel including corrosion resistant options. Our lifting magnets are from quality lifting equipment manufacturers. This is one of our most active categories containing many unique pieces of lifting equipment. Send us an email if you need any assistance; we are always pleased to help.
Cranes; Mobile, Portable and Fixed
Rigging Gear; Riggers Lifting Equipment
Lifting, rigging and slinging equipment on-line here is generally lifting tackle used under the hook, assisting the rigger and making safe the lift procedure; items that otherwise may be known as lifting accessories or loose lifting gear. Lifting Products such as Eye Bolts and Lifting Slings, Chain Fittings, Lifting Shackles and Snatch Blocks. We sell quality rigging accessories from reputable manufacturers like Crosby, Hackett’s, McKissick and many more. We have an excellent, knowledgeable and competent team of sales and engineering staff that are always willing to help you select the most appropriate item of rigging gear to offer the perfect and safe lifting solution.
Material Handling, Jacking & Fork Lift Truck Equipment
Cranes For Lifting Equipment; Mobile, Portable and Fixed
Our online selection of cranes provide an excellent choice with standard and special / bespoke options on most products. Our cranes can be portable, modular, movable or fixed as a permanent installation; items like overhead cranes. We offer solutions with spark resistant features and aluminium lightweight options. We have probably the greatest choice of floor cranes (portable workshop cranes) and Lightweight aluminium ‘A’ Frame gantries and davit arms available anywhere online at this present time. All these lifting items can be manufactured to our customer’s specification. Power supply options include electric or manually operated and we can build most cranes with hoisting equipment to suit our customers specific requirements.
Specialist Lifting Equipment
Material Handling, Jacking & Fork Lift Truck Lifting Equipment
A superior choice of hydraulic, mechanical & Electric manual handling equipment. The vast range of lifting jacks generally used to lift hold and separate the load / equipment. LiftingSafety give our customers a variable choice in quality, size range (capacities) and price. Materials handling equipment includes materials moving skates and dollies, pallet & stacker trucks and hydraulic lifting tables with manual or electric travel and lift. Our fork lift truck attachments section is very comprehensive as is our range of platform and sack trucks. Our staff are keen to offer the best solution rather than the most expensive options as we are in the business of getting new customers then retaining them; if you need a lifting beam or crane forks we are here to assist – why not get in touch, send us your enquiry today!
Access and Safety Related Equipment
Specialist Lifting Equipment
The Specialist application lifting equipment category contains many items that you may not see on other companies websites, for example we have a category dedicated to Atex lifting equipment which contains lifting tackle used in potentially explosive atmospheres, items like Atex chain hoists and ratchet lever hoists. This type of product is also offered with-out the anti sparking (spark proof) modifications in other lifting categories on our web site. Other categories in our specialist section include ROV (remote operated vehicle), Subsea lifting equipment and stainless steel lifting equipment most of which is also available made from other materials or without the specialist modifications as used mostly by our industrial customer. Please feel free to contact our sales team if you need any assistance.
Other Lifting Equipment
Access and Safety Related Lifting Equipment
LiftingSafety sell portable equipment for temporary access to a working area for maintenance, access & egress or production processes. Our working platforms are manually or electrically manoeuvred, our scaffold towers and ladders come in many different sizes and are easily / quickly assembled and moved. Safety products including load weighing equipment otherwise known as load cells, load links, load shackles or crane weighers and are designed as a connection between the lifting hook and the load to be lifted. The load cell indicates the load as it is applied to the hoist hook and if used by a competent person will ensure that the lifting system is not overloaded. Load arrestors are a fall arrest device for materials, a safety product that will catch a falling load should there be a failure of the primary lifting system/hoist etc... These are a much underused piece of safety lifting equipment and fortunately we offer an outstanding range in capacity, (SWL) and cable length, not to mention our excellent customer choice. Spring balancers, otherwise known as tool spring balancers or load balancers neutralise the weight of the tool or equipment suspended from them, like having a floating or weightless tool on a retractable wire rope. Again a much underused piece of safety lifting equipment, probably as many people do not understand how they work – feel free to contact our sales team for good advise and a competitive quote.
Other Lifting Equipment
Here we offer yet more items of lifting equipment; items that didn’t really fall into any other category though are just as relevant a group of products; a very active category with our customers. Included in this shop section are wind turbine lifting hoists from an array of lifting equipment manufacturers and a massive range of hydraulic workshop presses. We also offer many garage equipment items suitable for use in commercial vehicle garages. Our swaging presses are for the manufacture of wire rope slings and once again we offer a sizeable range. We look forward to receiving your enquiry!
Fall Arrest Equipment & Height Safety Equipment
Our online fall arrest equipment height safety shop offers a very comprehensive range of working at height equipment, PPE, systems and kits to suit most height safety / fall arrest applications. At LiftingSafety we are very proud of our catalogue and we offer multiple options for all product types to make sure that the customer can always find a product that meets with their requirement and budget; our online catalogue is easily navigated from the shop, through the categories and to the various product options. We are constantly adding new items and manufacturer ranges to our online offering and aim to be the 1st choice for supplier and end users alike. We hope you find enjoy the experience and find the fall arrest part needed, though be assured our sales staff are ready to offer assistance when needed. Fall arrest equipment is the most commonly used search term for people looking online for specialist suppliers of all types of height safety equipment. There are many different working at height disciplines though nearly all must employ equipment or design characteristics capable of safely arresting a fall with shock absorbing features that minimize the injury to the casualty; hence the term “Fall arrest equipment”. This category also includes restraint equipment, casualty rescue kits, rope access and many other types of height safety equipment.
LiftingSafety are world wide specialist suppliers / distributors for many quality UK, European and worldwide fall arrest manufacturers. We try to cover all categories of equipment in our online catalogue including the following:Harnesses for Fall Arrest, Work Positioning and Rope Access
Harnesses for Fall Arrest, Work Positioning and Rope Access
In this category LiftingSafety offer Fall Arrest harnesses to suit all disciplines while working at height. There are two main types of fall arrest harness; by far the majority are full body fall arrest harness though we also offer a great selection of sit harnesses. We have split these safety harnesses into manageable sub categories making it easier to find the right product for our customer’s application. Harnesses are split into groups by industry sector such as construction harnesses and electrical harnesses, others by working environment (ATEX and hot work harnesses) and yet more by harness design for example with belt or by manufacturing standard! This is probably the most commonly used fall arrest category in the shop. We offer a great choice of fall arrest harnesses and distribute from many top quality manufacturers.
Lanyards for Fall Arrest, Work Positioning and Restraint
In the lanyard category we offer mainly fall arrest lanyards though there are three main types of lanyards used for working at height! By far the majority that we offer and subsequently sell are fall arrest lanyards with shock absorbing features, thus also referred to as shock absorbing lanyards. Secondly we offer restraint lanyards as used by people working at height who need a system to prevent the worker from being exposed to a potential fall; these can not be used in a potential fall zone! Finally we offer a great range of work positioning lanyards otherwise known as pole straps. These are designed to be used in conjunction with fall arrest equipment. The pole strap fits to an EN358 harness or belt and provides the user with additional support though has no shock absorbing properties. Pole straps are often also used as adjustable restraint lanyards! LiftingSafety offer a massive variety of styles from many of the world’s leading top quality manufacturers. We offer Single leg, twin leg, elasticated and tie back lanyards.
Kits for Fall Arrest and Height Safety
LiftingSafety offer fall arrest kits (fall protection kits) at very competitive prices that are provided to you from top quality height safety equipment manufacturers. We offer Tractel, Yale, Sala, Ridgegear and many more ensuring there is a kit of fall arrest equipment to suit most working at height scenarios. Height safety kits have a combination of many component parts including inertia reels, fall arrest and restraint lanyards and many different styles of fall arrest harness. Different manufacturers use completely different names for kits that contain very similar equipment when either kit will potentially do the same job; for this reason we re-categorise the kits by manufacturer, industry sector and by kit contents. This way we make it simpler and quicker to navigate to the most appropriate product. We can also make up bespoke kits to suit your individual requirement.
Fall Arrest Inertia Reels and Retrieval Blocks
In this category LiftingSafety offer an unsurpassed selection of Fall arrest inertia reel blocks which are also commonly known as Fall Arrest Inertia Reels, Self Retracting life Lines (SRL and SRL's) and Personal Fall Limiters (PFL, PFL's). Some industries also refer to them as a fall arrest pulley? We offer small and large options, also offering lightweight and very robust options to suit all industries and extreme environments. Inertia reels are perfect for reducing the fall distance to a minimum and therefore likely to reduce the consequence of the fall, which typically is the injury caused by a fall. PFL personal issue fall arrestors are small in size, light weight and feature a shorter cable length. They are designed for the worker at height to keep with them, to carry on their person rather than being left permanently installed or ‘on the job’. We offer longer length inertia reels with up to a 60 metre cable length and options with Atex approval. We also supply SRL's with an integrated rescue winch to retrieve the casualty after a fall. This winch on the retriever block will raise or lower them to safety.
Man-riding & Rescue Rope Hoists, Electric / Manual
This category contains machines (Hoists and winches) certified and used for lifting persons and used gain access/egress by lifting or for casualty rescue applications. When choosing a manriding winch please consider the following: application, anchorage point to connect to, use of synthetic fibre or steel wire rope, the length of rope, speed of lift required, duty factor and physical size / weight and the environment suitability. Man-riding hoists are often referred to as a man-riding winch or a rescue winch though this is technical incorrect as a winch is used for pulling applications and a hoist used for lifting. We offer man-riding hoists from many top quality fall arrest equipment manufacturers including Tractel, Miller, Yale, Ridgegear, Sala, Protecta and more. It is sometimes difficult to choose the best lifting hoist (winch) to suit an application, if in doubt please ask our technical staff for the best solution.
Fall Arrest Systems & Man-riding Equipment
LiftingSafety offer in this category Fall Arrest Systems and Man-Riding Equipment. All the items are sub divided into product types so that the customer can quickly find and compare possible suitable fall arrest solutions. We offer complete fall arrest systems such as permanently installed fall arrest lifelines and individual components / products like hand and electric hoists (some people wrongly refer to them as man-riding winches). Some products are standard products supplied direct from the manufacturers, though we also have the skills to design and manufacture Special or Bespoke items such as Davit Arms, Tripods and Gantries. Our range of fall arrest davit arms are unique and a more comprehensive range than offered by any of our competitors. This encompassed a range that we actually design and manufacture to meet with our customers specific requirements. It’s a very similar situation with our lightweight aluminium man-riding gantries, so please contact us is you yourself have a unique requirement! Please let us know if you cannot see a solution to your working at height problem as we have many new products waiting to be listed on-line.
Fall Arrest Anchorage Devices
Fall arrest anchorage devices conform and are manufactured to the standard EN795 (Protection against falls from height, anchor devices, requirements and testing), they are an approved anchorage point to which the fall arrest lanyard, restraint lanyard, rescue system or emergency evacuation system karabiner connector can be connected. We offer a wide variety of products from many leading, top quality height safety manufacturers including Sala, Tractel, Miller, Ridgegear and Protecta (and many more). We believe the vast choice of options from all the different manufacturers and the user friendly nature of our web site make this category one of the best online offerings for fall arrest anchorage devices. LiftingSafety’s online anchor options can be permanently fixed (installed systems) or mobile (portable anchorages) dependant on customer requirements. Please note that it is the responsibility of the competent person to ensure that the structure to which the EN795 anchor is connected to has adequate strength and stability to arrest a potential fall.
Karabiners & Connectors, Fall Arrest, Man-riding, Rescue and Restraint
Fall Rrrest Karabiners have many different names widely used throughout the height safety industry such as connecting links, carabiners, mallions, scaffold hooks (Scaff hooks & rebar hook), snap hooks, fall arrest hooks, oval links and delta links. All carabiners must be a minimum positive and definite action for the gar to open though some require three! This is a safety requirement and the reason is to stop the karabiner from being accidentally opened by the height safety worker. We offer hundreds different sizes and shapes from all the top level height safety suppliers (Miller, Sala and Protecta) and made from different materials such as steel, stainless steel, lightweight alloy (Aluminium) and corrosion protected carbon steel. With this extensive selection and our navigation aids our customer’s should easily find a karabiner suitable for their particular application. We look forward to hearing from you!
Rescue, Evacuation and Rope Access Equipment
The LiftingSafety fall arrest rescue category is very informative and covers two main disciplines for those working at height. Firstly we offer rescue equipment for retrieval / rescuing a casualty after a fall. The employer has a legal responsibility to provide a rescue plan for any employees working at height; this includes people working at height (and below ground) in a potential fall arrest situation and also those not directly exposed to a fall where there is no practical means of egress should the person become incapacitated (heart attack etc...) for example, rescue from an overhead crane even if the crane bridge is fitted with hand rails for collective restraint! Rescue systems are available to remotely rescue a casualty without exposing the rescuer to the falling edge and thus not needing to use rope access techniques to connect to the fallen worker to the rescue equipment; this is achieved by using a remote extending rescue pole. The second discipline is emergency evacuation. This is when the worker at height needs to egress quickly, for example if emergency escape from an oil rig or working on a crane bridge and there is a fire in the building / working area. We offer a good range of kits and equipment for both rescue and for evacuation from some of the premium height safety manufacturers, so please consider contacting us for a competitive quotation.
General Height Safety Gear
Last but not least, LiftingSafety offer a lot more fall arrest equipment and gear for those working at height. There are many items in this category that do not warrant a category of their own and don’t fall into any of the above categories. The products contained within are critical to those working at height making this a highly active shop category and has proven very popular with our customers. Included in this section are height safety accessories, climbing ropes and climbing helmets etc... We offer special sections promoting hot work height safety and fall arrest equipment, plus height safety training courses, though one of the most popular sections is the black fall arrest equipment where low visibility is needed for example in the military or armed forces and also commonly used within the theatre industry where a low-viz / hidden harness is needed.

As it stands at the moment on liftingsafety we feel it couldn't be easier getting a quote for lifting or height safety equipment as every single product has a quantity box and quotation button, however some products do not have every configuration of options available to select for quotation and at this point you can input the specific requirements for the quotation in the comments box or call our sales office. The reason for some product not having the options configured are either because the range of that particular product is so huge it is not feasible to be configured on-line or because when the product was added we didn't have the capability to set the complete range of options available on that particular unit.
All quotation requests received by us are processed immediately by one of our team, we will quote you by return when possible though if we if you require a special or non stock item the quote will take longer.
