Lifting System with Sockets
Lifting loops can be used with lifting sockets. When using lifting loops, attention must be paid to the present instruction for use, installation instructions and the use of lifting sockets.
Lifting loops are available with Rd thread.
Lifting loops consist of a special steel wire rope in galvanized quality. Threaded components are made of bright precision steel.
When using lifting loops, the following things must be taken into account:
- Threads must be driven in completely.
- Clean dirty threads of transport anchors and lifting loops.
- The loop must not be damaged.
Lifting loops can only be used for traction with angles between 0 and 45° with regards to the axis of the socket. In case of larger angles, the Special Lifting Device must be used. To prevent a premature state of wear, the vertical curve radius of the load hooks must be at least the same as the wire diameter of the lifting loop. As any other lifting equipment, lifting loops must be inspected once a year by an expert.
