Snatch Blocks, Sheave Blocks and Crane Pulley Blocks
In this category we offer mainly snatch block and crane blocks which are both sheave blocks. Snatch blocks used to deflect a wire rope and can be supplied as Tail Board, with top hook suspension or as shackle suspended. They are often used suspended from a hook for lifting equipment application s though just as often used for pulling applications. A number of snatch blocks can be rigged multi reeved to increase the capacity (SWL). The more times the wire line is reeved through a snatch block / crane block the greater the safe lifting capacity of the hoist or winch that is pulling the wire rope. This is why crane blocks are reeved many times, to increase the capacity. On the negative side every time the wire line is reeved the lifting speed is reduced by 50%. We offer quality lifting equipment as made by Crosby, McKissick, Western, Tractel, Yale and Lebus with more manufacturers to be added to the catalogue in the near future.
