Putting our clients needs first

services

A core component of Britlift’s business is consultation. Our engineers have years of experience within the lifting industry and are available to help you complete your projects on time and on budget. Some of the areas in which we may be able to help are as follows:

We design, You manufacture

Do you have the manufacturing capabilities to complete a major lifting project, but not the experience required in the engineering and design? Britlift can help. We can work with you from quotation stage to final delivery and documentation on a vast range of below the hook solutions.

Load Weighing Services

If you need to confirm the weight of your load or even find out the CoG Britlift can help. We can visit your site to weigh your load and then produce certified weighing report for submission to your customer. This information can also be used (and is often crucial) to ensure a safe and level lift.

Certification

Need help getting product within the lifting industry certified for the European market? We can help here too. Our engineers are experts within the field of below the hook products and have walked the path from concept to shelf many times. We can help you ensure you have the correct documentation and procedures to certify your product to European law.

Staff Training

Britlift engineers also offer training presentations in various aspects of below the hook lifting. This can include the use of, design of, and requirements for below the hook lifting equipment.

Third Party Verification

Britlift can offer third party verification for you lifting equipment design in a number of ways. The two most common verification methods we can offer are FEA (Finite Element Analysis) and a detailed Calculations Report.

Rig Planning

The design and planning of lifting rigs is a core part of the services offered by Britlift. Our engineers will discuss your requirements and help you select the best rigging arrangement for your lift. Then a range of 2D and/or 3D rig drawings will be provided which can be used in your method statement within the lift plan.

Third Party Witness

You may require third party witnessing or advice when carrying out a complex lift on your site. Often lifts which use unusual or custom beam and frames can be dangerous if the proper experience and knowledge is not applied on the day of the lift. Britlift can attend your site and help to ensure that a lift such as this is carried out correctly and safely.

Site Survey

Commonly required for decommissioning or reinstallation lifts, Britlift engineers can carry out an on-site survey of your load to help you identify the safest and most economical method of carrying out the lifting operation required.
