Explanation of ATEX Chain Block Benefits
You can find a number of ATEX rated chain blocks here at Lifting Gear Direct, including the adapted YLLHP/G low headroom hoist which is also manufactured by Yalelift. All of these models, along with this 360 iteration, come with coatings that combat sparks. This means that they will not ignite flammable gasses, combustible liquids or explosive powders. In certain industries, such a design will be vital to ensure safety.
If a fully-fledged ATEX compliant chain block is an unnecessary feature of your business, it is a good idea to browse our full range of other units. These manual models come from Yale and rival brands such as GT and Tiger.
ATEX Yalelift 360 Chain Block Options
The capacity of each of these hoists is dependent in part on the number of chain falls that are present. The more chain falls, the greater the weight that the block can bear. The largest of the bunch is easily able to shoulder 20,000kg across its six chain falls. The smaller models with a single chain fall can manage between 500kg and 3000kg.
All examples come with a rotating hand chain guide, which allows them to be operated with greater ease than other units. This applies even if the operator is positioned overhead, rather than to the side of the load. Such flexibility is an uncommon attribute and boosts this already eye-catching chain block above the competition.
