When it comes to achieving safe, high-level access for workers, few methods provide the simplistic ease and efficiency of the humble man-basket.
Providing safe and versatile accessibility, man baskets have long been the preferred route of choice for many industrial workers; however, space and capacity can prove to be limiting factors.
Luckily, the good folks at Eichinger look set to make those limitations a thing of the past with the new 4-Man Man Basket!
Made with safety in mind, the 4-Man model features solid, half-height sidewalls to ensure maximum safety at height.
Fully covered for overhead safety, the basket also comes with a mesh rear wall for further stability, while also maintaining a high level of visibility from the inside out.
As if those features weren’t enough, the 4-Man also boasts internal overhead harness points to truly provide maximised safety for those on-board during use.
Additionally, the cage comes complete with a fully-moulded working tray built-in to the front. The overall unit is also painted bright orange for enhanced visibility to further enhance its safety.
The unit itself also features a 4-leg chainsling for crane use and can be operated via crane or forklift for universal versatility.
Boasting a safe working load of 660kg, the 4-Man from Eichinger is theoretically suitable for four workers of up to 165kg each (just under 26 stone).
In addition to the 4-Man version, Eichinger also offers a 2-Man Man Basket for lighter use. Featuring overhead protection, internal handrails and a mesh rear wall, the 2-Man version offers a safe and simple solution to high-level work access.
Also featuring an inward opening door, overhead harness point and 150mm floor surround, the ease and efficiency of this model makes it a firm favourite amongst contractors looking for height access for two.
Much like the 4-man, this product also boasts double-heel pin and 4-leg chainsling attributes for crane and forklift use.
A true veteran name in the industry, Eichinger Equipment Ltd has been providing high-quality lifting gear for well over a century. With a history that dates all the way back to 1904, the company has more than earned its reputation as a trusted brand.
Each product encapsulated the world-renowned quality of German-engineering, providing robust and durable lifting solutions. The Man Basket range is no exception and fully exemplifies just why Eichinger has been able to stay at the top of the game for so long.

When it comes to securing heavy-duty loads, few products can boast the versatile, load-restraining abilities of the ever-reliable ratchet strap.
Safe, secure and reliable, these durable restraints are ideal for keeping cargo in place and effectively eliminating any hazards related to falling loads. For heavy-duty transport, they are simply a must.
As always, our efforts to bring you the very best in safety lifting gear have seen our collection of ratchet straps expand this week, as we welcome a new product to the fold.
Say “hello” to the ERGO Ratchet Lashing from RatStrap.
New to the 5-tonne ratchet strap range at SLG, the ERGO Ratchet Lashing is a uniquely designed, heavy-duty ratchet strap fit for a wide variety of fastening jobs and purposes.
Unlike traditional ratchet lashings, this product features a fundamentally different approach to the tried and tested mechanism.
Instead of pushing the handle upwards to secure the lashing as is often the case, the ratchet handle on the ERGO product is pulled down in order to achieve a tighter fastening.
The result of this contrasting approach means you need to apply less force to achieve the desired tension, allowing you to achieve a firm fastening with considerably less effort.
The lashing itself measures an impressive 10 metres in length. Made from 50mm webbing, it features a claw hook on either end for simple, safe and sturdy attachment.
The aforementioned pull-down tightening action is also enhanced by a longer handle, specifically designed for ergonomic ease of use.
Capable of withstanding up to 5 tonnes of pressure, this heavy-duty ratchet lashing is also inherently absorbent of shocks, ensuring an all-round safer, more stable transit experience.
The ERGO Ratchet Lashing is the brainchild of specialist ratchet strap brand, RatStrap.
RatStrap aims to provide the most reliable, well-crafted ratchet straps on the market, with the ultimate goal of keeping your goods safe and secure as their top priority.
With RatStrap products, you know you’re not only getting a high-quality ratchet strap that provides superior safety, but you’re also getting a specialist product that’s tailor-made for the task at hand.
The ERGO Ratchet Lashing is no exception, incorporating a revolutionary approach to handle operation that makes load securing jobs considerably easier, improving the overall efficiency of the task at hand.
