Established in 1996, Durham Lifting has become one of the UK’s leading suppliers of a range of lifting products. Making a name for themselves thanks to their extremely high-quality products, very competitive pricing and extensive range of products, including lifting slings, hoists, lift testing equipment and cranes, they can help support the needs and requirements of many different businesses. They also offer other services, such as crane servicing and repair, testing, and lifting equipment hire. The following recommendations are quite general, so make sure to speak to the team and use their lift testing equipment before deciding on what kind of sling you want to use. If you feel like purchasing the gear that you need may not be worth it, i.e. you’ll only be using it once, the company even offers lifting equipment hire to accommodate your needs.
No matter the size of the equipment you’re trying to lift, the company is likely to have lifting slings that can safely and effectively lift it. For heavier items, a chain sling may be your best choice. Featuring superior strength, easier handling and durability, chain slings are ideal when working with heavy loads, elevated working temperatures or severe load conditions. Durham Lifting supplies grade 8 and grade 10 Alloy Chain slings, available in lengths to best suit what you need and in any configuration between single leg and four leg. The weight these slings can support ranges from 1.5 tonnes to 85 tonnes, offering a lot of flexibility when it comes to moving equipment. The chain itself, and the other components of the sling, all meet current EU standards, ensuring quality, safety and longevity.
If you’re moving a heavy load in rugged conditions, for example a construction site, steel wire rope slings could be the answer. Durham Lifting can supply a range of high quality wire rope slings in different lengths to best suit your needs. With lengths ranging from 2m to 8m and safe working loads from 1 tonne to 300 tonnes in stock, they can also provide specialist wire ropes with Flemish loop end fittings that can support up to 1,000 tonnes on request.
If you’re trying to move an irregularly shaped load, this company’s polyester round slings are ideal. Constructed with high tenacity polyester fibres protected by a durable polyester cover, flexibility is a key feature of the round slings, as they mould easily to unusual loads and have a low weight to length ratio versus more traditional types of slings such as chain or steel wire. Available in a range of lengths, from 1 metre to 8 metres, and maximum weights, from 1 tonne to 12 tonnes, polyester round slings are definitely one to consider.
The last type of lifting slings that Durham Lifting provides is the flat duplex webbing sling. These are constructed from 100% heavy-duty polyester webbing, making them very durable but also lightweight, less likely to scratch or damage the load and resistant to mildew and bacterial growth. The company can supply these from 1 metre to 10 metres, with supported weights ranging from 1 tonne to 14 tonnes.
The vast range of slings available makes Durham Lifting an obvious choice when it comes to meeting your lifting needs. Combine the variety of products available with their fair pricing, lifting equipment hire, great customer service and high-quality lift testing equipment and there really is no better place to go when looking for hoists, slings, lift testing equipment and so much more.
