A LIGHTWEIGHT CE CERTIFIED PORTABLE WINCH

The Riggers Winch provides the user with a lightweight, CE certified, portable winch mounted to a robust adaptor plate. Offered in two (2) sizes, the single-speed 200 model weighs only 4 kg (8 lb) and has a maximum rated load of 1.96 kN. The 2-speed 500 model weighs just 7 kg (15.4 lb). Its maximum rated load of 4.90 kN maximizes operator pulling power by up to 40 times. Multiple mounting options provide versatility when working in challenging or remote environments.

Simple to use and ideal for diverse applications.

  • Stage and theater rigging
  • Construction
  • Confined space
  • Access and rescue

 

UMP design

Design
The mounting plate is sculpted to remove excess weight and provides multiple attachment points without compromising strength. The pigtail line lead ensures correct alignment and loading of the winch for maximum efficiency.

UMP winch

Winches
Winches feature 17-4 PH stainless steel load-carrying gears and pins for strength and durability. The unique drum design maximizes grip on the rope. Packages include a universal mounting plate, Harken 10″ winch handle, and Harken winches 40.2 (500 model) or 20 (200 model).

 

UMP fiber rope

Fiber Rope 
The winch is designed for use with fiber rope up to 12 mm (1/2″) in diameter, reducing weight and allowing alignment to the load. Smooth surfaces and chafe-free
design are amenable to fiber rope.

UMP options

Options
For use with multiple attachments depending on the environment and industry—from ratchet straps, M10 bolts, karabiners, to scaffold clamps.

LOW-FRICTION LINEAR MOVEMENT                    Trolley Information  Rail Information

Harken trolley and rail systems provide a simple low-maintenance way to move loads smoothly. Trolleys feature recirculating ball bearings housed in strong, lightweight, corrosion-resistant aluminum for dependable, low-friction linear travel.

low-precision

Low friction, smooth rolling
Harken rails and trolleys provide a low-friction rolling solution under both compression and tension loads.

Torlon® or Delrin® ball bearings reduce friction to move loads easily, and require no lubrication. Wire retaining clips and composite corner keepers keep ball bearings captive, allowing trolleys to be easily removed for maintenance.

Harken trolleys are designed with an open-ball race for easy maintenance. The rail can be bent to various radiuses, allowing the trolley to run freely.

compression-and-tension

Curved rail
Rails can be bent to suit various applications. Minor bends can be made when the rail is installed.

If the rail requires greater bend, Harken can provide horizontal, vertical, or compound curves to specification.

Contact Harken for more details.

Powered winches allow the operator to handle high loads with fingertip control. Vertical or horizontal motors offer flexible mounting options.

ultra-500-x-500

High power, ultra lightweight

Use when high load capacity and high strength-to-weight ratios are critical. The wide drums provide extra surface area to secure high-tech lines. Winches can be driven by electric or hydraulic motor or pedestal for power, or with a standard winch handle.

Stainless Steel Diamond EN795:2012 Class A Anchor
Stainless Steel Diamond EN795:2012 Class A Anchor

Part No. IN689

TESTED TO EN795.2012 CLASS A and requirements of BS 8610 Draft May 2017.

Uses

The IN689 stainless steel diamond anchorage point is designed to be permanently installed on a structure so that an anchor device, or personal protective equipment can be attached to it, facilitating safe working at height.

The padeye is appropriate for two person use for both fall arrest and rope access with an energy absorber to EN 355. It is large enough to allow articulation, will accommodate karabiners, and is cost effective.

Black-magic

Black Magic® Air® pulleys
With high strength-to-weight ratios and free-rolling, high-load roller bearings, Black Magic Air pulleys handle high dynamic and static loads where friction is an issue.

Midrange

 

 

 

 

Classic Midrange
These robust pulleys are ideal for handling high loads. Free-running Delrin® ball bearings roll on flat races to allow fast haul and release under high or low loads.

 

Hexaratchet

Classic Midrange Hexaratchet
Midrange Hexaratchet pulleys grip loaded lines, relieving holding loads while maintaining quick ease and haul with complete control. A switch on the side engages and disengages the ratchet mechanism.

ESP

ESP pulleys
Sheaves feature sleeve bearings to handle high static loads. Ball bearings handle sideloads. Aluminum sideplates make ESP pulleys strong and durable.

T2

T2 soft-attach pulleys
These lightweight, low-friction pulleys tie, splice, or lash to almost anything. With no metal components, they are exceptionally corrosion and conduction-proof as well as spark free.
