Yale is one of the most respected names in the lifting equipment world; with almost a century and a half of history behind it and a huge range of cutting edge products on offer.
Yale VSIII Chain BlockThis mid-tier hoist can cope with a range of lifting requirements, with models ranging in terms of load capacity from 250kg right up to five tonnes. It benefits from a modern chain guide system which keeps everything flowing smoothly, avoiding jams and ensuring that loads remain stable. It also features a number of zinc-plated components, which are resistant to corrosion and thus better able to deliver a long lifespan that customers will appreciate.
YaleLift 360 Chain BlockWhen it comes to versatility, the 360 manual chain block is at the top of the pecking order. The hand wheel cover can be rotated a full 360 degrees, which lets you operate it from multiple angles. Safe working limits for this range kick off at 500kg and top out at 20,000kg, with the largest unit of the lot relying on six chain falls to keep loads safe and secure. The slick, precise operation of the chain makes it a breeze to use and you can also buy a version of this product with an integrated trolley for added convenience. Corrosion-resistant examples are offered for businesses that need extra protection and durability.
Yale ATEX YLLHP/G Low Headroom Chain BlockFor work in environments where explosives are present, this ATEX-compliant low headroom chain block is a must-have. The unit and the trolley it sits on are coated to prevent sparks being generated as they work. The brakes have an integrated cooling element to avoid overheating. Models of multiple capacity levels are available, ranging from 500kg right up to ten tonnes, so it should be suitable for a range of organisations and industries.
The standard version of this unit, which does not come with the ATEX adaptations, is also available to buy. As the name suggests, both examples are equipped to deal with lifting in areas where there is limited headroom available. Push travel and geared variants offer different capabilities, depending on your budget and requirements.
All of the Yale chain blocks we stock are designed with safety in mind, and will also be compatible with different beam widths and jib or gantry crane configurations. With this level of choice, it is no surprise that it is one of our most popular brands.
