Chain and Rope Suppliers Ltd stock a complete range of heavy duty, high quality chain blocks for all your lifting requirements with safe working loads from 250kg to 10,000kg.
Chain blocks are also known as block and tackle, pulley block and a come along. A chain block is similar in purpose to a lever hoist. A block and tackle can be used to lift a load or to pull a load. Chain blocks are seen as a cost effective method of hoisting heavy components. Often used by steel erectors to hoist beams, on building sites to hoist roof trusses or in garages to hoist engines, chain blocks are a versatile solution to a hoisting problem.
A block and tackle is a simple to use piece of rigging equipment. Chain blocks use a gearing mechanism to convert the cranking of the hand chain into a force capable of lifting up to 10 ton. Connect the top hook to a beam clamp or push trolley for added convenience. The block and tackle can be used with shackles and webslings to provide the perfect lifting solution.
Our chain blocks are available in a variety of standard capacities including 0.25T, 1T, 1.5T, 2T, 3T, 5T, &10T. The height of lift available on our block and tackle range is 3mtr, 6mtr and 9mtr as standard. Chain and Rope Supplier’s trained chain block technician can modify this if necessary.
All our chain blocks come fully tested and certified.
