chain slings

Here at PalleTrucks-Trolleys, we supply a selection of chain slings in our range of lifting gear, each of which is designed to provide security and reliability when performing heavy lifting operations. In order to ensure that you make the most of your product, it is highly important that the correct safety procedures are performed before, during and after use. This will not only ensure that your product retains its safety benefits, but will also allow your chain sling to operate according to its full capability.

Here are the steps that each user should be taking before using their chain sling:

Inspect - Before use, conduct a thorough check for visible faults and distortions, which may impact the safety and efficiency of the product. Repeat this before storing the product for future use.

Read and Follow Manufacturer Instructions - Always take care to read the accompanying specifications and instructional guides carefully, in order to ensure that operational regulations are being followed, and to avoid misuse of the chain sling.

Ensure That the Equipment is Suitable - Never force or wedge the chain sling, and make a trial lift to ensure that the operation is stable and secure. 
 
Pay Attention to Weight Limits - Always be exact when assessing the weight demands of your operation, and lower the working load limit if there is a chance of severe impact.

Keep Clear - Avoid placing your fingers/hands between the load and chain, and keep the area clear whilst performing the lift.

Treat With Care - Do not jerk the load whilst lifting/lowering, and avoid dragging the chain, in order to prevent possible damage to the chain sling due to stress.

Store Safely - Store in a secure, assigned area that is dry, clean and free from chemicals which could harm the product.

To choose the correct chain sling for your operation, carefully read the specifications in each of our size categories, which can be found here:

The aim of load moving equipment is to make life safer and easier for workers who are performing manual operations, but this isn't always the case if you can't find the right set of products for your application. Load moving solutions should be tailored to meet the exact needs of your operation, which means that a non-specific solution can often be a poor choice for many applications, due to the fact that it has not been designed with an exact range of requirements in mind.

If you're using lifting and moving equipment that hasn't been designed to meet the needs of the load and environment, the benefits of safety and efficiency are often reduced, and at times, completely lost. For this reason, we are committed to offering a range of highly specific load moving solutions and manual handling products here at PalleTrucks-Trolleys, including our range of pipe and material trolleys.

Unlike standard moving trucks and trolleys, pipe trolley products have been specifically designed to cope with the demands of moving long cylindrical objects, which can often be very awkward to manoeuvre and carry. Each is tailored to provide the greatest range of usability benefits, and also has it's own Working Load Limit, allowing you to choose an option that fits the exact demands of the materials you work with.

Here's a closer look at one of the pipe trolley models in our range:

500kg Tube & Pipe Trolley
