Rigging screws / turnbuckles are also used for lifting applications though before using to lift with please check with the operation and used manual to ensure that they are certified for lifting; the reason being that many manufacturers only certify for pulling applications. We offer closed body and open body versions. A turnbuckle can be adjusted when under load to pull two items together or to tension / loosen. They can also be used to take slack out a system if there is any movement or stretch over time. The lock nuts will hold maintain the bearing to bearing when in use that can otherwise creep / slacken due to vibration and other reasons. Standard turnbuckles go up to 34 tonne though specials are available to meet our customers’ requirements. Each range come is different lengths so that dependant on the safe working load that you need and so there should always be an option with the correct amount of adjustment.

This includes rigging equipment for connecting wire ropes, items like wire rope grips Bulldog clips fast grip double bolt clips made from galvanised steel and stainless steel. We also offer a category with end terminations for steel wire rope including thimble eyes, spelter sockets, wedge sockets and swage fittings including a range of hooks.

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.
Load restraint equipment us used to tie down equipment stopping it from moving. Load restraint and cargo restraint products are not lifting equipment and cannot be used for lifting application under any circumstances. Items need restraining from movement when being transported between locations for example road and rail freight. If the cargo is not restrained it could easily cause an accident falling from the vehicle or train. The products fall into two categories, cargo restraint ratchet straps and load binders, both are available in different sizes , capacities and lengths to suit our customers applications. Ratchet straps have a steel ratchet handle with a polyester webbing sling. Single part ratchet straps have the long webbing sling fitted permanently to the ratchet. 2 part ratchet straps have a separate web sling with end fittings. The web sling can be supplied with different end fittings dependant on our customer's applications, usually hook or eye or buckle (many types). We also supply cam buckle restraint straps, lorry straps, one way straps and stainless steel cargo restraint latchet straps. Load binders are to achieve exactly the same function as ratchet straps.
Most items of lifting equipment in our catalogue have many optional products from other lifting equipment manufacturers and therefore fill a category dedicated to that range of products. Here we have items that are unique to our web site where no competitive items exist. As other products arrive online items will move from this category into their own dedicated list of product.
Load Swivels are a piece of lifting equipment that adjusts to the movement of the load to avoid putting stress on either the lifting equipment or on the support structure.

Please feel free to contact our sales team who will assist with any enquiries and quote accordingly.
Pulley sheaves otherwise known as pulley wheels are used for deflecting the direction of a steel wire rope or a synthetic rope; to change the direction that the rope travels usually between the hoist and the hook meaning that the wire rope path can be located in a safe area. Sheaves are also used with steel wire ropes reeved back and forth to increase the capacity or safe working load of the lifting equipment. Sheaves are available to suit all wire line sizes and can be supplied with many bearing types, either both a plain bore (no bearing) or with centre bronze bush bearing or needle roller bearings. Other options include common bore pulley sheaves, tapered bearing type pulleys, and many options of sheave that are integrated into housing. Sheaved supplied mounted in to a housing are often known as lead blocks and can be bolted to the anchorage surface, welded or fixed by a shackle. Some lead blocks can swivel and other rotate to the direction of the load. We offer sheaves from top level reputable manufacturers including McKissick, Crosby, Pfaff, and Western with options for fast speed operation by a powered hoist or winch (electric chain hoist / pneumatic pulling winch) or slow line speed as would be the case with a hand operated hoist or hand winch.
