Load Arrestors


Load arrestors provide secondary protection to almost all types of goods lifting. They act similarly to how a seat belt works. Should the primary device fail the goods will start to fall which will cause the load arrestor to catch the load thus ensuring the safety of the personnel working in the immediate area.

If you would like assistance with determining which load arrestor you require you can:

APL Load Arrestor

APL Load Arrestor APL Load Arrestor rear view APL Load Arrestor side view APL 3000 kg Pulley

The APL Load Arrestor is designed for arduous duty cycles and where the stopping distance is critical. With a cast aluminium case machined to stop outer water ingress and 4 heavy duty pawls that lock into a ratchet type reduction system this load arrestor will work where others fail. The APL has a minimum of a 2:1 safety factor to ensure that your load is safe if your primary device fails. Offering protection of loads from 50 kgs up to 1600 kgs and able to be either bolt mounted, better for permanent works, or shackle mounted when a temporary solution is required makes it incredibly versatile.

The APL block also has 3 different activation speeds to choose from, 0.3 meters per second, 0.5 meters per second and 1.0 meters per second. All APL Load Arrestors that have a pulley supplied with them can only have the 0.5 meters per second activation speed. The APL unit has a built in activation indicator, once activated the unit must be serviced immediately.

Due to the way in which the APL unit works stopping distances are very exact and can be increased or decreased to suit customer requirements although decreasing the stopping distance increases the anchorage loading and increasing the stopping distance decreases the anchorage loading.

Due to having our own test facility we can build an exact specification of unit should you require it as long as the load to be captured is less than 1600kgs.

Kratos Load Arrestor

Kratos Load Arrestor Kratos LA 10 1000 12

The Kratos load arrestor range is a perfect solution for secondary back up of suspended goods where these loads are not constantly moving.

The system using a friction type absorber which will arrest the fall should the primary lifting device fail. This makes the Kratos unit ideal for back up to lighting rigs, hospital lights, speaker systems and all other objects where the load is in the same place for the majority of the working day.

Light and simple to fit, only requiring a karabiner or ‘D’ shackle to mount they are an inexpensive solution to the majority of load suspension uses.

Units supplied currently do not have an activation indicator although we can fit an activation hook as an extra cost if stated at the time of order.
