In the past week, the team at SafetyLiftinGear have been busy helping out with an exciting project in partnership with lifting specialists, King Lifting!

The project was focused around helping to lift Dorian, a restored ship used in both World Wars, namely during the evacuation of Dunkirk.

King Lifting had previously purchased a number of round and webbing lifting slings from us to assist with other lifting applications but in order to lift the Dunkirk ship, further equipment was required.

This time around, SLG supplied a 12ft Modular Spreader Beam frame (4 x 4 meter) with associated shackles in order for the weight of the ship to be properly carried (tare weight of the boat on the crane was 9.7 tonnes), helping it on its way to the next part of its journey.

Eight long years have passed since restoration started on Dorian in 2011, but now she is ready to take to the sea again, ready for the Return to Dunkirk. Organised by the Association of Dunkirk Little Ships to commemorate the 80th anniversary of Operation Dynamo in May 2020, SafetyLiftinGear is proud to have played a small part in the ship’s long and historical story.

We have an extensive range of the spreader beams used to help lift the Dunkirk ship in stock, ready for both hire and full purchase, depending on your needs! And just like many other products in our vast collection, our beams are able to be customised with different configurations and extra struts. You can browse our spreader beams and see images from the project below.

The season of giving is far from over, as the whole team here at SLG have been working hard to expand our extensive product offering, providing our customers with even more quality lifting equipment.

Over the past week, SafetyLiftinGear has added several lightweight swivel lifting davits to help your lifting applications on-site run easier, smoother and safer. Available in a choice of working limits, Davit arms for lifting are very similar to jib cranes though limited in reach and capacity. Our collection of Davit arms is highly portable, so you can transport them along with you whenever and wherever lifting tasks are required. However, they can also be permanently fitted to a position on site where continuous lifting applications occurs.

Manufactured with galvanised materials to protect from the elements and corrosion, our Davits are perfectly suited for a range of environments, whether indoors or out.  these are designed to help carry out work effectively without risk of physical overload. As with many of our products, our lifting davits can be built to your exact specification to meet your lifting needs. Learn more about the product specifications of our lifting davits below.

Christmas came early for a Welsh steelworks this week as SafetyLiftinGear came bearing gifts in the form of industrial lifting equipment.


air hoist lifting gear hire


Lifting Gear Hire from SLG

SLG’s Cardiff depot rented out a whole host of heavy-duty haulage products to a local site ahead of planned maintenance works over the Christmas period.

The sizeable hire consisted of some of our most popular industrial-use items, including the following:

With 11 of each product, the client looks set to make light work of any heavy lifting that comes their way over the Christmas period.

Should St Nick need any help lugging presents while he’s soaring over Wales, he’ll know exactly where to go for a helping hand.


air hoist lifting gear for hire


SLG Air Hoist and Beam Clamps Hire

The specialist air hoists ordered by the firm are capable of lifting up to six tonnes in weight, which equates to roughly the same as a fully-grown African elephant.

While it’s unlikely the guys and gals at the Welsh steelworks will be using these air hoists for such a mammoth task, it’s reassuring to know that our air hoists are more than fit for the job.

Meanwhile, our beam clamps are no weak link either. In fact, they are capable of lifting about the same weight as a cruise ship anchor, ensuring any industrial heavy-lifting tasks are plain sailing all the way.
