Slings are the most important component of any hoist system as they are the interface between the client and the hoist. We offer a comprehensive range of slings in a variety of designs and materials to allow safer and more comfortable moving and handling. The chosen hoist and sling must be able to lift your body weight. Therefore, the working load should be displayed on both. You must know your weight accurately to select the appropriate equipment.
Check the hoist regularly to ensure that:
1. the lifting arm moves smoothly through its full range
2. the castors on a mobile hoist move freely
3. the brakes are effective when used
4. any emergency stop mechanism works effectively
