This Steel Scaffold hook has a gate opening of 55mm
Made using forged steel, this scaffold hook is a good connector to use in height safety applications, such as in conjunction with a harness. Produced by Kratos and supplied by Lifting Gear Direct, it forms part of our ever-growing height safety equipment range.
Before you get to deploying this particular scaffold hook, it is sensible to scrutinise the specifications. It has a 23kN breaking strength, a gate that opens to provide 50.8 millimetres of width and a secure mechanism which means that once it is attached, it is very unlikely to become detached unless the user deliberately chooses to do so.
A scaffold hook will often be attached to an anchor point which suits its design; in this case, a scaffold pole. Some of our safety harness lanyards come with scaffold hooks like this already attached, so this standalone component could be used to replace damaged hooks or to create your own bespoke harness assembly.
Falls from height are one of the leading causes of workplace injuries, meaning that you cannot afford to ignore the risks and should be sure to invest in the right equipment to prevent accidents.
Whether you buy a full harness kit or choose different components to develop a setup of your own devising, LGD can supply the products you need.
