Choose The Right Load Arrestors

Load arrestors are designed to arrest the accidental fall of machinery or other heavy objects such as raw materials, automotive assembly line fixtures, and eleva​tors. A key factor when selecting the correct device is capacity, the overall weight of the object the load arrestor will be required to stop in the event of a break of the main support line/unit.
