Our Galvanised Pump Lifting Chains 

Pump lifting chains are designed to make the lowering and raising of submersible pumps easier. Their unique manufacture means they are purposefully designed to lift in underwater settings such as waterworks and sewers. 

They have been fitted with a master ring at each end and at one-meter centres to allow for easy hook up to underwater pumps. Both chain and rings have been manufactured with a galvanised finished to prevent rusting from being underwater, this means our lifting chains can perform optimally for long periods of time. Perfect if you plan on using them a lot or for a number of years!

Spreader Beams 

Our range of modular spreader beams is another effective and efficient lifting solution when it comes to lifting extremely heavy loads. They work to eliminate the horizontal forces that are created during the lifting process by producing a mainly compressive force which is distributed across the length of the beam that is attached to the load that you are lifting. Our spreader beams can lift loads of up to 70 tonnes and are adjustable when it comes to their length, making them an extremely versatile piece of lifting equipment!

Electric hoists are the ideal lifting solution when a manual hoist doesn't quite cut it. Whether you work within the construction or industrial sector where a host of lifting applications are required, we are sure you will see the benefits that come with using an electric hoist. Our hoist range offers electric hoists in a variety of WLLs and voltages to cater to a comprehensive range of tasks, so no matter what job you may have, we are confident our range of hoists can help.

Mobile Gantry Cranes 

Often used to complete heavy lifting jobs within the construction sector, gantry cranes offer a simple and effective lifting solution. However, these cranes are often large and static and do not move. For smaller lifting tasks, our range of mobile gantry cranes is the perfect thing! Fitted with 160mm diameter 360-degree castors for easy transport, they are great for the use within small workshops that may require heavy lifting jobs such as removing engines out of vehicles. Each of our mobile gantries is fully adjustable with the working height and hoist position able to be changed on a job-by-job basis.

In the past, SafetyLiftinGear has helped a variety of different people and organisations to transport and relocate many different things such as this Dunkirk Little Ship, way back in January of this year.

This trend doesn't seem to be slowing down any time soon either, with the latest news that we'd like to bring you of how we helped to relocate a male forest elephant in the Ivory Coast! 

Wildlife veterinarian Dr Richard Harvey (http://www.izvg.co.uk/) was asked to assist the Ivory Coast Ministry of Water and Forests to transport a male forest elephant named Hamed. 

Hamed was relocated from a small village in the south of the Ivory Coast to N'Zi River Lodge Reserve due to him being a little out of control and causing damage to a number of things, including heavy machinery, vehicles and people's homes!

The situation was getting out of hand and raised concerns for both Hamed and the local population. As a result, Hamed was required to be moved to a safer environment where he could no longer cause harm to others or himself. But, as you can imagine, to move a fully-grown elephant you require specialised equipment. That's where we come in.

 

How SLG helped 

To make the transportation of Hamed as safe and effective as possible, we supplied Dr Harvey with a selection of our strong, reliable webbing and round slings. These were used to secure and lift Hamed safely onto a trailer where he was transported to his new home. 

Take a look at the images of the lift below:

 

Our round & webbing slings 

If our round and webbing slings are good enough to help lift an African male elephant, they'll be more than suitable for your lifting applications! All our lifting slings are made with the finest of materials to ensure a safe, effective and reliable lift. They are extremely tough yet lightweight and offer incredible flexibility that minimises shock during the lift.

advantages of pallet truck with brake

Warehouses and factories can be very dangerous places to work, so keeping your staff safe should be at the top of your priority list. Pallet trucks are often used to transport pallets of heavy and fragile goods around. Being able to stop a pallet truck quickly can be very beneficial, especially if there are forklifts or other members of staff moving around the workplace. 

As you know, we offer a wide range of pallet trucks here at SafetyLiftinGear including manual pallet trucks like this 2.5-tonne pallet truck from LoadSurfer, and battery-powered pallet trucks like this 1500 kg 'Edge' fully-electric battery pallet truck from Batt Truck. But today, we're introducing you to one of our pallet trucks that features a built-in brake. 

One of the biggest advantages of choosing a pallet truck with a brake is that you'll have much better control of it on slopes and ramps. This is particularly important if you're moving heavy goods, the weight on the truck could cause a serious accident! 

Some other advantages of choosing a pallet truck with a brake are as follows:

  • You'll be able to stop quickly in case of an emergency
  • You'll have better control over the pallet truck and the load you're moving around the workplace
  • You'll find operating this pallet truck easier and more convenient than a standard manual pallet truck

LoadSurfer 2.5 Tonne Pallet Truck with Brake

The pallet truck you see above is a revolutionary pallet truck model that's fitted with a break for maximum safety and control. It features a 3 position control handle, wheels and rollers that are coated in durable polyurethane and a high-quality hydraulic pump unit.
