Chain Hoists; Manual, Electric, Pneumatic

Chain hoists are probably the most common piece of machinery used to lift and lower equipment. They are designed to lift a load vertically using a hook connected to a chain which is then driven either manually, electrically, pneumatically or hydraulically.

A chain hoist can be a permanent fixture for when a lift is commonly required within the same vicinity or temporary fixing for when a lift is required in several different locations infrequently. All chain lifting hoists offered by LiftingSafety are suitable to be fitted to a trolley, which can be either manually moved or have powered travel, by such means as electric, air or hydraulics.

Wire Rope Pulling Winches & Lifting Hoists

Available here are a wide choice of hoists which can either lift or pull a load by means of a wire rope. There are two main differences with wire rope devices, some are designed to lift and pull (hoists) and some are designed just to pull (winches). The main factor that decides if a wire rope machine can be used to lift, pull or both is the factor of safety that it required and the unit is built to; to lift a load there is a FOS (factor of safety) requirement of 5:1, whereas to pull a load the requirement on only 3:1 FOS. Options are available for manual, electric, pneumatic or hydraulic cable pulling and lifting devices. All of which have their own unique features and specifications which can make one more suitable than another. If you feel you need assistance at any point in deciding the right piece of equipment for you, please get in contact and we will do our best to ensure your problem is solved.

Probably one of the largest online ranges of general and specialist lifting equipment including; beam trolleys, all types of hoists, rigging equipment, beam/plate clamps, lifting magnets, pulley sheaves and lifting equipment identification tags/systems etc., from a vast array of suppliers and manufacturers across the world.

Many users refer to the items contained within this category as lifting accessories or loose lifting gear. Many of the items are also listed in other relevant categories within our online shop, advertised here are Lifting Eye Bolts and Lifting Slings, Chain Fittings, Bow and D Shackles and Crane Blocks. We sell quality rigging accessories from reputable manufacturers like Crosby, Hackett’s, McKissick etc....

We offer solutions with Atex (anti-sparking features) and lightweight aluminium cranes though generally can modify to suit our customers requirements.

Forklift Truck Attachments

Fork lift attachments are an item of lifting equipment accessories used in conjunction with a fork lift truck to lift, carry, crane, push, pull, hold, dispense, rotate and clamp equipment to improve efficiency and assist or remove the manual handling effort of the user. There are many items in many categories including roll forward skips, drum handling equipment, fork truck mounted lifting jibs, booms and tines, fork extensions, scoops and snow ploughs. We also offer a great selection man riding basket (fork truck man access baskets) s used to gain access to areas, working at height. Most of the attachments we offer are manufactured in the UK by a factory with over 40 years of experience. We offer special and bespoke fork truck attachments and offer full technical assistance with expert In-House manufacturing at hand. 

Specialist Lifting Equipment

For most of the products in this category that we refer to as specialist application lifting equipment we probably also offer a similar or identical item in another category except is will be made from a different material or made to a different specification from normal industrial working environments. For example the Atex category contains many items that have generally been modified to work safety in potentially explosive areas, items like chain hoists and rather lever hoists which are also offered without the anti-sparking (spark proof) modifications. Other categories include the ROV and Subsea lifting equipment and stainless steel lifting equipment most of which is also available made from other materials or without modifications for our industrial customer. Please feel free to contact our sales team if you need any assistance.

Access and Safety Related Equipment

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.

Workshop and Shop Floor Equipment

In this category LiftingSafety offers many items that don’t really fall into any other category though collectively they are just as important a group of products. This is a very busy category with our customers and included in this shop section are wind turbine lifting hoists, from many lifting equipment manufacturers and a big range of hydraulic workshop presses/hydraulic floor presses. We also offer many items of garage equipment items suitable for use in commercial vehicle garages. Our swaging presses are used for the manufacture of steel wire rope slings and once again we offer an ample range. We hopefully look forward to receiving your enquiry!

Import and Export

We are both an importer and exporter of lifting equipment with a great deal of enquiries being from overseas customers. If you are a buyer from overseas you can be assured that we have the right product range and the knowledge and experience to deal with your enquiry – we are professional exporters!

Where possible, through-out the listings of lifting gear and height safety equipment (fall arrest, rescue, restraint, rope access etc...) have been kept as simple and easy-to-use as possible, however because of the vast range of equipment available in our online catalogue it is a challenge to get things in the right place. For this reason some of the height safety and lifting equipment may appear in more than one category.

What makes us different!

Our business is managed by lifting engineers, people who understand the product range and are able to comfortly offer further insight or advice on the items we have on offer; we are not simply a catalogue company! Our web site is also managed by lifting engineers though uniquely we also employ our own in house IT team who write, present, develop this web site. Our most important asset is our customers so when we designed, we looked at what the customer needed and not simply at what we presently had the technology to offer and therefore the online functionality and presentation was designed for the customers. LiftingSafety respond to our customer's technology requirements and constantly update the web store with functions that improve and enhance the user experience. We tear down the technology barriers and rewrite the rules on what can be achieved.

Discounted Quotation

With almost all of the lifting equipment or fall arrest equipment listed throughout liftingsafety (including some of the more specialist units), we have the facility and ability to offer discounts on the majority of orders and quotes. To get a quote simply find the required product(s) and use the ' add to quote request' button and request a written quote from us, or you can call our office and speak to one of our dedicated team on UK 01977 684600 or overseas 0044 1977 684 600.

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.

Lifting and Height Safety Quotes

All our lifting equipment and height safety products are available for quotation and all of which will receive a discount where possible when quoted by us. The majority of the products which we have within our online range either have a unit price or a guide price. If the price is displayed as a 'unit price', then this generally means that this price is current, this is the price which we will be working from when applying discount to your quotation request. If the price is detailed as a guide price, then this generally means that this is a past price which may have expired or may have increased slightly due to materials costs or a manufacturers annual price increase. This doesn't necesarily mean that this is the case, as in a good majority of instances we are still able to work from the guide price.

All quotations received by us are processed immediately or as quick as is humanly possible by one of our team. If you need your quotation sooner or with a matter of urgency, feel free to contact our office where one of the dedicated specialists will be happy to assist you in processing your quotation.

Material Handling Equipment

For us at Selby Engineering, material handling equipment can cover the majority of our lifting goods too, however we have segregated a few smaller more simplified categories which we feel are the most material handling orientated. These are the following gears: Machinery Skates, Jacking Equipment, Pallet Handling and Stackers, Genie Lifts, Scissor Lift Tables, Platform Trucks/Trolleys and Cylinder Handling Equipment. They can all be accessed from the lifting equipment shop link at the top of every page. We fully appreciate that finding the correct handling solution for your materials application is sometimes a daunting and challenging task, this is why we would like to reiterate, if you need any assistance please feel free to contact us when ever it is a suitable time for you and you will be assisted as best as we possibly can to find the right solution to suit your needs.
