UniLift and DEHA Lifting Clutches Superior Safety and Lifting Performance
Ancon is pleased to announce the recent extension of its lifting clutch range. The UniLift Locking Klaw, recognised locally for its superior safety features which protect against unwanted disconnection, has now been joined by the DEHA universal lifting clutch from Halfen, the world’s most recognised lifting system brand.
Together, the clutches provide the ideal lifting and handling system for a wide variety of precast concrete products, particularly in civil engineering applications. These clutches are typically used for lifting panels, pipes, pits, manholes, box culverts, road barriers, bridge beams, planks, sound walls, culverts etc. They allow for fast, safe, efficient handling of precast products and meet the requirements of New Zealand Approved Code of Practice for the Safe Handling, Transportation and Erection of Precast Concrete.
The UniLift Locking Klaw is suitable for working load limits up to 20T. The Halfen DEHA universal lifting clutch extends the working load limit of the Ancon range up to 32T. For more details please download the leaflet available.
These strong, safe, lightweight clutches are compatible with all spherical head lifting anchors. Please contact your local Ancon branch for more details.
Ancon is part of the Construction Accessories division of CRH plc, an international building materials group with operations in over 35 countries and 80,000 employees.
Ancon is exhibiting at the 2016 NZ Bridges Summit on 1st - 2nd November in Auckland. The conference is endorsed by the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) and we will be showcasing our BT range of threaded reinforcement couplers, our MBT range of bolted couplers and various Lifting Systems including our brand new EdjPro Narrow Anchor system.
Having recently identified issues with the performance of some batches of reinforcing steel supplied to us, we have introduced batch testing for all reinforcement used in combination with our BT coupler system in New Zealand to ensure compatibility.
