About Heavy Duty Lifting Bags for Construction Use

These heavy duty lifting bags for construction site use are made in the UK. Most consist of a triple wall system and most have a robust plastic base plate inside the bottom of the bag for strength, protection and stability.

The tube/pole lifting bags have a steel base for the added strength and protection that is needed for lifting scaffold poles and tube materials.

For added strength and support the majority of these bags will have a hard tray base or a PVC protective boot, some lifting bags will have the choice of either option.

Just like the other lifting bags we supply the lifting sling system complies to EN1492-1 and is contained within a special channel. The sling channel incorporated on the majority of bags holds the sling in its perfect position to spread the forces applied by the load whilst keeping it balanced. Most have a range of connection options such as wear sleeves and delta rings.

However one or two hands are needed to carry the bucket which makes climbing ladders difficult. By using a bucket lifting bag your materials can be lifted to the level that you are working at effortlessly. What's more there is no risk of the bucket handle breaking as the bag lifting slings are taking the weight.
