Today, we want to talk you through our selection of high-quality load arrestors
- these robust products are designed to make sure that heavy loads don't fall when being lifted, even if the load's primary support system fails.
How do they work?
Each G-Guard fall arrestor consists of a retractable safety line that works in a similar way to a seatbelt in a car. If a load drops suddenly whilst attached to this line, the load arrestor's fall protection brake will automatically kick in and prevent the load from crashing to the ground. The brake's shock-absorbent properties minimise the force of the load arrestor, protecting the load from damage and the user from injury.
Why should I use a load arrestor?
Back-up measures like these fall arrestors are important in case your lifting equipment suddenly fails while you are raising a heavy or valuable load. These safety lines will ensure that your load does not fall unexpectedly where, as we've already mentioned, it may cause damage, injury, or even worse.
Although you might not think you need a back-up load arrestor, you'll be thankful you purchased one when you're saving money later down the line. Many of our customers work with valuable equipment in theatres, in nuclear power stations, in building and home renovation etc.
Now, imagine you're trying to hoist a £10,000 chandelier, a centrepiece in someone's home. Your primary lifting device fails and glass shatters everywhere... Not only is this a huge safety risk, but it's also the type of precious load you or your clients may not be able to replace in the event of an accident. This is why it's important to have the right safety precautions in place!
