ADVANCED SAFETY IN THE WORKPLACE
Cranes and hoists are designed for vertical lift only. Side pulling of loads causes damage to the hook block, ropes, sheaves, rope drum, guide, bearings, and the general structure. Associated with this is the increased accident potential due to misuse and the potential failure of limit switches and other associated safety items. With the Installation of the Liftco side-pulling prevention device, the dangerous practice of side-pulling of the load is eliminated. The crane/hoist can thus lift only vertically, as designed, increasing safety levels on the factory floor and reducing maintenance costs and wasteful downtime.
