Chain Blocks

Chain blocks are a type of lifting equipment that consists of a chain and two pulleys. The chain is used to lift heavy loads, and the pulleys help to distribute the weight evenly.
Chain blocks are an essential piece of equipment for various industries, particularly the construction sector, and are a common feature to many industrial workplaces.

How does a chain block work?

A chain block is a device that is used to lift or move heavy objects by suspending them from a chain. The chain is attached to a pulley system, which helps to distribute the weight of the object evenly. This makes it easier to move the object and prevents damage to the object or the surrounding area.

Chain blocks come in a variety of sizes and capacities. The size and capacity you need will depend on the type of objects you will be lifting or moving.
