Load Arrestor – 500kg

Full Safety Protection Feature

Hoist UK offers load arrestors at 500kg which provide a secondary safety back-up for overhead loads. Used in conjunction with a primary lifting device or support such as a hoist. If the primary support fails, the load arrestor will automatically stop the load from falling, preventing damage to the load and, more importantly, protect people below.

Our load arrestors are provided with a high-strength retractable cable that extracts and retracts, following the movement of the load. This means the load arrestors can be fitted to equipment that needs to be moved (dynamic loads), as well as static loads. If the load was to enter into free-fall, the cable is extracted at an accelerating rate; once the activation speed has been reached, the braking system will engage, bringing the load to a smooth and cushioned stop.

  • Also available in 300kg & 1000kg
  • Shock absorbing brake cushions the fall
  • Galvanised steel cable fitted as standard
