We've had some bitterly cold weather in the UK this week - the Met Office have issued amber weather warnings in several parts of the country, and many people's travel plans have been massively disrupted by the snow.
Today, we'd like to announce a rather timely addition to our product range: snow plough attachments for forklift trucks!
These sturdy galvanised blades can be mounted on the forks of your truck and used to move snow out of the way. This attachment is ideal for those who don't have access to a real snow plough and don't wish to shovel the snow themselves - it's great for clearing car parks, access roads, and any other site where snow could present an inconvenience during a cold snap.
Our plough attachment is available in 3 different blade sizes:
The plough attachments are available to buy or hire - click here to browse all options.

Some new additions have recently been added to our Fall Protection Beam Anchor Clamps and Trolleys G-force range!
We work to provide the best quality equipment here at SafetyLiftinGear and our new Beam Anchor Clamps and Trolleys do not fall short of this standard. Here's a quick look at the new additions and their benefits.
This lightweight adjustable Fall Protection Beam Anchor is fully adjustable and portable. This allows for hands-free horizontal mobility and is ideal for overhead use. Some further benefits include:
Similar to our new adjustable beam anchor, this Fall Protection Fixed Beam Anchor is both portable and adjustable to suit your needs. Ideal for use as an anchor on steel beams but also can be attached to vertical l-beams due to the built-in locking mechanism that holds the device securely in place.
Our high-quality Fall Protection Adjustable Beam Trolley is the final new addition to our G-force range. This fall protection trolley is both portable and adjustable and moves along horizontal beams as a secure anchor point for your fall arrest equipment.
All of these items are available to either buy or hire depending on your needs. To hire this equipment, simply click 'hire me' when on the product page and 'enquire' once you reach the checkout. If you'd like to get in touch about any of the products mentioned today, you can do so here.
To continue bringing you all the lifting equipment you could need, we've recently expanded our selection of chainslings! We now have fantastic 16mm Grade 100 Chain and Components in stock to make single leg, 2-leg, and 4-leg chainslings.
These are capable of giving 25% higher capacity than the standard Grade 80 Chainslings! All of our chainslings are made to the highest standard so that you can be sure that they will get the job done time after time.
Fitted with Self Locking Hooks, the latch automatically locks when a load is applied which makes them extra safe compared to standard latches. Furthermore, it is much stronger than traditional pressed steel latches.
Our 2-leg and 4-leg chainslings are conveniently adjustable so that you can choose the length you need for your lifting project. Our standard chainslings are available in lengths between one and six meters, but we are capable of customising chains to make you a bespoke product ready to order.

Here at SafetyLiftinGear, we pride ourselves on being able to provide our customers with high-quality, reliable products. That's why when someone wants to use our products to carry out a test we are more than happy to help. Recently, we were asked to carry out a davit arm test. A davit arm is used for recovery of personnel out at sea, so it's important that the crew are aware of exactly how much weight the davit arm on board can take.
The test was carried out on a davit arm that had recently been installed on a commercial rescue boat. We supplied 150kg of hand test weights and sling shackles so that a live load test could be conducted whilst the rip was on its mooring in Lymington Yacht Haven.
(20kg test weight)
The davit arm was successfully tested and we were all happy with the way it turned out!
If you have any questions about what you may need to test your equipment, we are more than happy to help. For any queries on any of the products, we supply feel free to contact our friendly team.
