Home / Load Arrestors
Load Arrestors and Load Arrestor Blocks are designed to arrest a load in the event of a hoist brake failure.
Typically, when a hoist brake fails, the load drops to the ground, this can have unthinkable consequences for those below, albeit a rare occurrence with the hoisting technology in today's market- it is still a risk and there for, still a requirement when lifting loads in applications where people below could be at risk from a catastrophic failure above.
Having a load arrest block in place ensures that if a catastrophic hoist failure were to occur, the device kicks in and stops a falling load right in its tracks. A bestseller for all the obvious reasons!
