Access and Safety Related Equipment

Quick Ref: CN-1212

LiftingSafety sell Portable access equipment as used for many different types of work, for maintenance, access & egress and for production processes. Our working platforms are manually or electrically manoeuvred and lifted; our scaffold towers and ladders come in many different sizes and are easily and quickly assembled. LiftingSafety safety products include load weighing tackle (load cells, load links, load shackles or crane weighers) which are designed as a connection between the lifting hook and the load. The load cell indicates the weight of the load as it is applied to the hoist and it helps to prevent overloading a crane. Load arrestors are a safety product to catch a falling load. They are a fall arrest block for materials applications. We offer on-line an outstanding range in capacity, (SWL) and cable length. Spring balancers (tool spring balancers or load balancers), neutralise the weight of the tool or equipment suspended by them making the tool seem weightless while suspended on a retractable wire rope. Again a much underused piece of safety lifting equipment. Please contact our sales team for a competitive quote.


Load Arrestors

Load arrestors are designed as a secondary safety device to arrest (catch, stop) falling equipment if the primary lifting equipment fails while being lifted lowered or for equipment that is permanently suspended. The fall may be caused by mechanical, electrical failure of due to anchorage point failure. Load arrestors are also known as fall arrestors (though the term fall arrester would more typically lend to PPE such as a fall arrest inertia reel / self-retracting lifeline), materials arrestors, safety fall arrester and increasing door arrestors (bi-folding doors in particular). Load arrestors are commonly used on lifting machines such as electric chain hoists, stage lighting rigs in the theatre and in mechanised production processes such as pallet strapping and shrink wrapping machines etc... Load arrestors provide a secondary back-up safety device that, in the event of the load free falling will prevent damage to the equipment impacting on the lower surface; more importantly 'material load arrestors' also stop the load from dropping onto or in the region of people below where they are working or in a public place such as in a lighting rig in the roof space of a shopping centre. A Load arrester is designed for arresting materials/goods and equipment and not to be used in systems for arresting people or equipment carrying people/persons.
