Lifting Bag Uses


Lifting bags can offer a great solution to many issues that can arise when lifting certain loads. Imagine trying to carry all your tools up a ladder or scaffold tower! This could take numerous trips, not to mention being somewhat hazardous as you need your hands free.

When you opt to use a lifting bag, all your tools and materials can be placed in the bag and lifted in one go by a hoisting device so they are there, ready for use when you reach your destination to begin working at height.


There are many other scenarios that could benefit from the use of a lifting bag. For example, do you need to install solar panels, window frames or some plasterboard sheets? If so then there is a lifting bag which will suit this task, a panel lifting bag has sides which open and close using quick snap buckles for easy loading and removal.


Working on construction sites pose an array of different lifting operations from lifting tools to mortar. Bucket lifting bags are a great solution for lifting may items like these and can even be used with old buckets with broken handles.


Gas cylinders are often required at height but are not easy to lift and manoeuvre. Not a problem if you use a special designed gas bottle lifting bag which also incorporates some great safety features given the nature of the load.
