Globestock G.Guard 500kg SWL Load Arrestor Blocks

SKU 253-11-2

  • G.Guard™ load arrestors are retractable, tensioned cable safety devices for the protection of equipment, machinery, high value and sensitive loads that are suspended at height. They protect both static and dynamic/moving loads at height and help minimise associated hazards to the area below
  • Load arrestors provide a secondary safety back-up for overhead loads, used in conjunction with a primary lifting device or support, such as a hoist or fixed anchorage. If the primary support fails, the load arrestor will automatically stop the load from falling, thereby preventing damage to the load and, more importantly, protecting people below.
  • G.Guard load arrestors have a high-strength retractable rope that extracts and retracts, following the movement of the load. This means the G.Guards can be fitted to equipment that needs to be moved (dynamic loads), as well as to non-moving (static) loads
  • G.Guards are a cost-effective, straight-forward way of managing risk. They are being increasingly utilised under EN 17206:2020 as an effective protective measure and safeguard.

G.Guard load arrestors are used extensively in industry, car production lines, material handling & lifting, pillar lifts, theatres, stage production, nuclear power stations, sound systems, chandelier fitting, sports halls, and many more applications. Galvanised steel cable comes as standard, with the option to upgrade to a stainless steel cable
