When working at height, it is essential to use top-quality equipment that you know you can rely on. The first step to creating a safe and secure system for working at height is to use the best equipment - the second step is ensuring that you’re using it correctly!
We've got a great new range of products to help you out with lifting and moving tasks around the house!
Moving furniture around can be dangerous if it's heavy and you're relying solely on your own strength. Lifting a cumbersome object like a sofa or a fridge can lead to back injuries and other musculoskeletal disorders if you go about it the wrong way. And if you drop the load in question, in can do a lot of damage - to the floor, to the item itself, and of course to your foot. Ouch!
Whether you’re going for a late-night jog or are working in a dark environment and need both of your hands free, headlamps are great tools to have on hand – or should we say, on head!
When it comes to lifting and lowering loads, chain blocks (also commonly referred to as chain pulley blocks, a block and tackle, or chain hoists) are a fantastic tool for giving yourself the means to handle and manoeuvre loads efficiently and safely.
A chain block uses mechanical gearing to reduce the effort of the user to lift the load. A chain block comprises of a load chain fitted with a hook, safety catch and a hand or pulley chain that’s used to operate the hoisting mechanism.

When you’re trying to decide what material handling equipment is best for getting a task done, it’s important to know the right titles to discuss your different options. When it comes to material handling, some equipment names are used interchangeably, particularly when items have similar features or are used for similar purposes.
Two of the most common repeat offenders for this misnaming confusion is dolly and trolley. Possibly because they sound the same, people often use the terms trolley and dolly interchangeably, but is there a difference between the two?
