All of our bags are made from 900 gm/2 heavy duty PVC coated fabric with a lacquered gloss finish and total UV protection on both sides. The bags are all weather resistant so they can be used in all types of environments offshore or onshore. The fabric lasts long and is easy to clean with very high mechanical strength. The bags are lifted with a sling system in place which uses 50mm polypropylene webbing slings supporting and lifting the contents of the bags. A2 rated industrial Delta rings are used as attachment points on our bags, the D-rings have a breaking load of 6000kg and can be linked together with a master-link. The closures of bags uses Velcro hooks and loops for quick and easy opening of the lifting bags. Our trays are made from High Density polyethylene plastic (HDPE) which is known for its High Strength-to-density ratio, Corrosion resistance, Abrasion resistance, Low friction and outstanding wear resistance to protect the lifting bags from wear at the base, and give protection to its contents. HDPE is commonly recycled, and has the number "2" as its resin identification code (formerly known as recycling symbol).
We currently provide 2 types of standard lifting bags; CE-Certified and Load Rated
CE-Certified Lifting Bags:
When it comes to safety, you always want to make sure your on top of your game, that’s why we created CE-Certified industrial lifting bags to ease our clients minds of one extra safety factor to think about. You can rest assured our bags are as tough as it gets, and there for you can buy without any doubt in mind.
We have an integral lifting sling system that complies with lifting standard EN-1492-1. These bags undergo extensive safety tests and are accompanied with a unique serial number which corresponds to the certificate of conformity that is issued and supplied with every individual bag clearly stating maximum safe working loads.
As well as a normal load testing that we carry out on our “load rated” bags, we also test the webbing slings of the bag which is the integral part of the lifting mechanism of these bags. The slings are tested 7:1 ratio of its specified safe working limit meaning in theory they are able to lift 7 times more than the stated SWL.
The design is different in a way that you get round slings supporting the side weight of the contents and the slings themselves are inserted into bags via channels so the user can inspect the slings for wear and tear and if necessay, they can be replaced.
CE-Certified bags are used where the risks are high and correct safety measures have to be taken. Although these bags come at a little extra cost than the standard load rated bags, you can rely on them to do its job correctly, and safely.
Load Rated Lifting Bags:
If you only require lifting of simple materials and non-delicate equipment then we do recommend going for Load Rated Industrial Lifting Bags which are brilliant for hoisting materials, PPE equipment, general tools, scaffolding couplings etc. quickly and easily. These bags aren’t as complicated in technicality, they just do what it says on the bag!
Although these bags don’t come with a fancy certificate of conformity, we do issue manufacturers certificate which states its compliance with the safe working load stated on the bag. They are also issued with serial numbers for tracking.
Load rated lifting bags are a cheaper solution to your lifting problems than the CE-Certified lifting bags, but we can assure you they do not lack in safety and are more than capable of lifting their safe working loads.
