Our winches are built to withstand a variety of challenging environmental conditions, including standard operating temperatures of 0º - 40º C. However, where more exacting conditions apply, we can build mechanisms that extend these operating parameters to suit.
Every lifting winch requires a fail-safe braking system. Our standard electric and pneumatic worm gear winches are self-braking, which is fine for general lifting purposes. Brake motors can also be incorporated where necessary, or we can provide mechanisms without brakes.
Bank brakes are typically used for applications where a second brake is required, such as manriding or where the static load is a multiple of the dynamic WLL. They can be provided manually or fail-safe automatically by means of a hydraulic or pneumatic cylinder.
