Lifting Equipment Store are proud approved suppliers of high quality chain blocks

The Chain Block, commonly known as a hand chain hoist or block and tackle, a chain hoist usually features top and bottom hooks, the static top hook is to suspend the hoist from a beam clamp or trolley, the bottom hook is the load hook, this is raised and lowered by simply pulling down on the hand chain, this then turns gears inside the hoisting unit to raise or lower the load. Both hooks feature safety catches to ensure that the load and the hoist is secure once suspended and lifting.

Alternative methods of suspension:
Not only can your chain block be suspended from a static beam clamp, it can now be suspended by a beam traveling trolley, this allows for horizontal transportation of the hoist and load either pushed powered by electrics a beam traveling trolley can easily be fitted to a suitable RSJ or I beam. Push travel trolleys can be purchased separately as well as electric travel trolleys, however there are certain manufacturers that supply integrated push travel or geared travel trolleys. Geared travel trolleys are operated by pulling a hand chain that turns wheels on the trolley, this moves the trolley along the beam, ideal for heavy loads.
