Custom lifting sling

Here at SafetyLiftinGear, we pride ourselves not just on our wide range of high-quality lifting equipment but on our ability to provide bespoke lifting solutions for virtually any job.

We recently received an enquiry from R Turner Loft Conversions, a team of contractors based in Dorset. Specialising as they do in loft conversions, they frequently work at height, and they needed an easy way to lift materials such as roof tiles, OSB, plasterboard, etc.

Custom sling in use

We'll let Rick from R Turner Loft Conversions tell the rest of the story:

"We are a small team, and we have been struggling over the years to lift some materials up a ladder, so we decided to purchase a decent hoist.

"I decided that I required 4 slings with a sling hook on each end. I searched the Internet and ended up speaking to James Bertham at SafetyLiftinGear.

"I sent James a couple of rough sketches of what I was trying to achieve and how I intended to use the slings. James supplied me with the correct tailor-made strops, and my simple idea worked perfectly.

"Thanks very much for supplying these custom lifting slings."

If you need a tailor-made solution for a troublesome task, call SafetyLiftinGear on 0117 9381 600 to discuss your requirements with one of our heavy lifting experts. You can also email sales@safetyliftingear.com.

Fork extensions on a forklift truck

Fork extensions offer a simple solution to the problem of an extra-large pallet or a load that is too large for your forklift truck's standard-length forks.

The fork extensions simply slide over your existing forks, adding a bit of extra length to better support the load. The extensions are secured with heel pins so they can't slide off when in use.

How to Calculate Fork Extensions

Before selecting your fork extensions, measure the width and thickness of your fork truck's forks. Then check the dimensions of the fork extensions to ensure they will fit. The extension length MUST NOT exceed 66% of the forks.

You MUST refer to the fork truck manufacturer's manual to ensure you do not exceed the loading capacity of the truck.

For any help or advice please contact our sales team, who are on hand to answer your questions.
