Materials being dropped during the dipping process could be a costly failure, not to mention the risk to any personnel who may be nearby. More and more, galvanizing plants are installing load arrestors alongside their primary lifting equipment, as a dependable safeguard against the material being dropped, in case of a failure with the primary system.

In this application, one (or more) Guards are fitted to a secure anchor point, above the dipping bath, with the Guard's end shackle fitted to the material's cradle. The Guard's cable automatically extends and retracts, like a fall arrester, following the movement of the load. This means the materials are always protected, even during raising/lowering, without the need for the Guard's cable to be routinely reattached - just leave it in place and let it do its work. A simple and cost-effective safeguard.

What's more, Guard load arrestors can be fitted with stainless steel cable and feature corrosion resistant components, helping them withstand the harsh environment within galvanizing plants.
