Certex UK, distributors of lifting and safety equipment, launches its own brand range of slings.
The new Quic-Slings are the first fully conforming wire rope slings on the market to comply with the latest European standard (EN 13414-1). To meet this requirement, the products are manufactured according to the new regulations and are comprised entirely of approved components and fittings from leading suppliers such as Crosby.
The manufacturing facility itself has been set up to enhance Certex’s range of services to the lifting industry and will be run in conjunction with the company’s regional centre in Aberdeen. The fully customised Montrose workshop has been equipped with a wide range of equipment and holds comprehensive stock to meet customers’ needs.
"We have worked hard to recruit the services of very experienced local personnel, who have been making wire rope sling assemblies in the area for many years." said Certex’s Regional Business Manager, Davy Young. "This means that we can ensure workmanship and product knowledge to the very highest of standards."
"Add to that our excellent supply partnerships with major and global manufacturers of wire ropes and fittings and we are able to produce an unparalleled range of products," he added.
As well as manufacturing its own brand of Flemish Eye and steel ferrule slings, the Montrose facility will also produce wire rope slings by talurit; socket terminations by resin pack; 2, 3, 4 and 5 leg wire rope slings; pennants; and crane wires.
