Lifting Straps

Can anyone point me in a good direction to get some lifting straps, ideally the webbing type, 3 point lifting strap ideally 4 tonne.

Many thanks

Richard

I had my lifting stop made by Spencer Rigging, here in Cowes.

Mine is 4-legged 60mm webbing 2T inc. shackles. 188.00. This included lifting the RIB out to determine the balance point.

HSS Lift & Shift stores, should be able to supply all as required. Otherwise ARCO (nearest one to you is Chandler's Ford I think).

We use all Spanset strops on the ships, virtually indestructable. Whatever you do, get a test certificate for each bit of kit just in case it fails and you have to show your insurer you were using the right stuff!

Regards

Simon

You SHOULD find that if you don't have the appropraite test certificate the slinger/crane opertor will refuse to use them! Depends how H&S conscious they are! Always best to carry them with you just in case. I believe this is for the shackles as well.

Thank you, have called them and they are going to sort me out with some straps early November when the Rib comes over. Got to go to them so they can adjust the straps accordingly to balance the rib when lifting. Plus they also issue certified rating certificates.

many thanks

Richard

Nice one.

They certainly make workmanlike strops.

Its nice to know that if someone was woring underneath and they snapped, you should be 'covered'.
