Rigging Hardware Product Highlights for Heavy Lifts

Keeping your rigging operation safe, reliable and efficient is more important than ever. That means you need rigging hardware that can bear exceptionally heavy loads.

Here is some of our favorite rigging hardware specifically designed for heavy lifts. Which hardware will most benefit your job site?

Crosby Lifting Eyes

We love Crosby lifting eyes. That’s because they are strong, durable and designed to meet rigid safety standards. In fact, they are the top choice in the transportation, construction and mining industries.

In addition to handling heavy loads without breaking or flailing, Crosby lifting eyes are coated with corrosion-resistant material to combat rust. They are easy to use and come in a variety of sizes, styles and capacities.

Load Monitoring Systems

Smart technology has revolutionized rigging hardware, especially in the way that heavy lifts are monitored. Load monitoring systems, such as smart shackles equipped with sensors, provide information about weight, stress and temperature, which helps operators make informed decisions. By continuously monitoring the load, smart systems boost safety and efficiency in heavy lifting operations.

High-Strength Shackles

Rigging as we know it wouldn’t be possible without powerful shackles. Modern shackles made from alloy steel provide higher load-bearing capacity and durability, making them perfect for heavy lifts. They can also withstand extreme environments and distribute loads evenly, increasing overall performance on your job site.

Versatile Hooks and Swivels

Durable hooks and swivels are vital for connecting lifting equipment to your load. Eye, choker, carbon swivel and forged snap hooks are just a few of your many configuration options. Consider not just how heavy your load is, but how much rotation will be required. Ensure your hooks have secure closures, such as latch mechanisms, to prevent disengagements.

Robust Lifting Plate Clamps

You never want to deal with an accidental drop on your rigging site, especially with how heavy your loads are. That is what makes lifting plate clamps so crucial.

These clamps are designed to securely grip the edges of steel plates, ensuring a stable hold during the lifting process. The risk of slippage decreases when the weight of the load is evenly distributed across the clamp’s jaws. Lifting plate clamps are ideal for construction sites, shipyards and manufacturing facilities.
