Load Arrestors

Fed up of your workforce breaking your loads fall449 Then take a peep at our load arrestor range! We offer UK manufactured/designed arrest systems for capacities ranging from 300-1000kgs with a max stopping distance of 1m and a working length of up to 20m. The load arrestor is completely independent from that of your primary lifting device. This lowers the risk of equipment damage, but more importantly, your workforce. 

Arrestors are implemented as a last resort if your primary device fails, you can compare the functionality of the device to a seatbelt when it receives a certain amount of force it will lock in place. When the primary device fails and the load begins to descent, the load arrestor senses the load is travelling at a 'falling speed' and the mechanical brake inside the arrestor is activated. Slowing the load down quickly but safely until a complete suspension of the load occurs. We also offer a matte black version to accommodate the theatrical and entertainment industry. All of our load arrestors conform to the European Directive 2006/42/EC.
