VLCB Spark Resistant Manual Chain Hoist

 

Certified to ATEX standards to ensure safer lifting in dust-laden or explosive gas atmospheres.

ATEX Rated

The Spark Resistant Manual Chain Hoist conforms to the European ATEX directive 2014/34/EU for certified use in potentially explosive atmospheres. ATEX is a multi-level technical standard mandatory in the European Economic Area (EEA) for using equipment in dust-laden or explosive environments.

Standard Slip Clutch

The VLCB's slip clutch protects the hoist from damage and helps the operator maintain balance in the case of an excessive overload. This feature keeps the hoist working safely in position on the job site, reducing costly downtime and repairs, and maximizing the safety of the operator and co-workers in the immediate area.

Bronze Coated Top & Bottom Hooks

Stay safe from top to bottom with load hooks designed to resist sparks at the point of contact.

High Impact Steel Housing

The VLCB has a rugged body and hand wheel cover made of heavy gauge high-impact steel, giving much needed protection in extreme conditions and demanding applications to see every job through to the end.
