LiftingSafety Offers online in our synthetic (Man-made fibre) sling category lifting slings designed to be light weight and help prevent (minimize) damage to the items being lifted. A synthetic webbing sling is also often referred to by a variety of names such as lifting strap/strop, belt sling, polyester lifting sling, flat web/web lifting sling, belt webbing, woven sling, simplex or duplex sling, round webbing and sling endless slings. They are also sometimes wrongly referred to as nylon lifting straps/strops. Soft slings like this are either made as duplex or simplex flat web or endless round slings, both are made from the same core materials, which is typically polyester or Dyneema. Polyester and Dyneema are both synthetic (man-made) materials; polyester units are light weight and very competitively priced; Dyneema are extremely lightweight and compact offering a greater working load limit than polyester. This feature makes the Dyneema a little more expensive than a standard polyester sling, although Dyneema lifting slings start to re-pay their original extra purchase cost as soon as they are put to work lifting heavy loads increasing productivity and the time savings for heavy loads can be massive because they are so compact, lightweight and easy to handle.
LiftingSafety’s lifting shackle category offers a very comprehensive online rage. Lifting Shackles are connection link, used to make a connection between the load lifting device (hoist hook / sling) and the load to be lifted. There are two main shapes / styles of lifting shackle and they are “D” Shackles (or Dee Shackle) and bow shackles otherwise known as Omega shackles. The shackles we offer are galvanized, self colour (forged black steel) and made from stainless steel. As a general rule the galvanised steel lifting shackles tend to be US Federation specification alloy steel lifting shackles and the Black Forged steel lifting shackles tend to be High Tensile to BS3032. (This is usually the case though not always as both types can be self colour or galvanised). Dimensionally the US Fed spec anchor shackles are physically far small than the black self colour high tensile shackles while still maintaining the same safe working load. The load pin on a lifting shackle is fastened to the shackle body in different ways; there is screw pin where the pin screws into the body of the shackle like a bolt and safety pin shackles where the pin passes through the body of the shackle then is captivated by either a split pin or nut c/w split pin. We also offer a great range of stainless steel lifting shackles, ROV shackles, hydraulic remote release shackles and wide body shackles.
Eye Bolts and Eye Nuts are also commonly known in the lifting industry as lifting eyes and are available in a wide range of metric and imperial sizes, as well as high tensile steel or stainless steel options.

This category is populated with beam trolleys, these are load suspension trolleys designed to have a load or lifting equipment suspended underneath then traverse along a runway lifting beam (otherwise known as a monorail lifting beam made from a rolled steel joist (RSJ) or universal beam (UB) or Universal Column (UC). We offer in our online catalogue shop four sections, different types of Monorail runway trolley. Beam trolleys are a mobile anchorage point that can be fitted onto a lifting beam to suspend lifting equipment beneath, such as a chain hoist. This allows the load to travel along the direction of the lifting beam. A Beam trolley can also be referred to as a load trolleys, a beam runner, 'I' beam crane trolleys, a beam flange roller or girder monkeys. This section is for manual push travel beam trolleys and geared travel runway beam trolleys (Chain drive). Gear travel units are moved along the beam by operating a hand chain and give a greater level of control especially on larger capacities. Most trolleys are adjustable and some are quick release. We offer heavy-duty and low-head room trolleys, also swivel truck trolleys to negotiate tight radius bends on runway tracks where required.
We offer lifting magnets online as manually operated and electric powered from reliable lifting equipment and magnet equipment manufacturers like Bux, Magnetics, Eclipse magnetic, Yale, Tractel. Hand operated lever action lifting magnets are by far the most popular category within the Lifting Magnets section of our online web shop. These are permanent lifting magnets which means that they are used to lift material they are permanently switched on and cannot be de-magnetized with-out operating the magnet lever. All permanent lifting magnets have a 3:1 factor of safety (FOS) when used in accordance with the manufacturers operation and user guide. It is air gaps between the surface of the magnet that reduces the efficiency / lifting capability of a lifting magnet. Air gaps are caused by rust, paint, dirt, oil or other contamination, rough surfaces etc..... and must be taken into account before use. Eclipse uses a safety ship to assist the user to confirming that every lift still maintains the 3:1 safety factor. It works by simulating an air gap when a safety shim is used. Put the safety shim between the magnet and the equipment that need lifting then take the weight with the lifting hoist, if the load is held then when the shim is removed you will have a 3:1 safety factor.
Lifting equipment and height safety equipment in the UK and other parts of the globe are subject to mandatory periodic thorough examinations to ensure that lifting equipment is still in good order and therefore still safe to be used. For lifting gear the inspection period is six (6) or twelve (12) monthly dependant on the type of equipment. Thre are bi-annual inspections for lifting equipment accessories and annual inspections for lifting machines. The colour code tags that we offer enable a visual indication to the user that the equipment is still within an acceptable service period and so should be safe to use though still subject to user inspections prior to and after use. The lifting equipment identification tags are also equally great for visual identification that height safety equipment or fall arrest equipment is still with-in its mandatory inspection period. Fall arrest equipment is subject to 12 month examinations and man-riding equipment every 6 months (man-riding includes equipment and PPE that is load bearing such as suspended rope access equipment). Please note that these tags are an indication only in a scheme designed to work towards ensuring that all lifting and height safety fall arrest equipment is safety to use. Lifting / fall arrest identification tags / labels are part of the system, not the whole system. Thorough examination lifting equipment Inspection periods quoted are the maximum permissible in the UK though must be reduced according to user factors including the working environment, chemical and UV light exposure, amount of use, cleanliness, number of users user inspections etc.... Always for the lifting or fall arrest equipment manufacturers instructions on safe operation, maintenance and thorough examination
