INLH500 LokHead winch and handle
INLH500KIT  LokHead winch kit

A SELF-TAILING, PERSONAL-HOISTING CAPSTAN WINCH WITH THE SECURITY AND SAFETY OF A CAPTIVE HEAD

NEW mounting plate and tripod adapter now available.

The innovative LokHead winch is a portable or fix-mounted load-lifting, personal-hoisting winch used with an unlimited length of fiber rope. The captive head allows the winch to be used safely, and keeps the rope from accidentally releasing. Perfect for fixed or temporary applications and rescue.

Simple to use and Ideal for Diverse Applications

The LokHead winch can be used anywhere a load needs to be lifted or lowered. Rigged to a tripod, it can be used for confined-space rescue operations, for load moving/hauling, and man-riding.

Maintenance is Easy

The simple construction requires no lubrication and can be flushed clean with fresh water.

Lightweight

Weighing just 4.2 kg (9.3 lb), the LokHead winch can be incorporated with a compatible mounting bracket into a rescue/lifting system without significantly increasing overall weight.

Reliable

The braking system controls descent and provides workers protection against free-falls. The encapsulating jaw cover protects fingers and clothing from catching in the winch.

Ergonomic with new image

Ergonomic

Easy to rig and efficient, the LokHead makes the most of the operator’s efforts. The winch offers two gears; 15:1 for low load/high speed use and 40:1 for higher load applications.

Versatile

The winch is designed for use with fiber rope 10 –12.7 mm (3/8 –1/2″) in diameter and unlimited line length.

Manual or powered

Manual

The winch can be driven manually with the provided B10AL handle. Alternatively, use a compatible power drill with the power tool adaptor to drive the winch.

The winch is also certified under EN1496 for Human Suspension and EN13157 Machinery Directive for lifting goods and equipment.

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.

EN13157 Pulleys
EN13157 Pulleys

Harken Industrial has a Solution to any Pulling Problem

We offer over 470 types of pulleys with breaking loads from 0.5 to 946 kN. Sheave diameters range from 16 – 150 mm with the option of single, double, and triple sheaves featuring ratchets, cleats, beckets, opening sideplates, and padeye attachments. Attachment options include fixed head, swivel head, cheek attach, or soft attach.

Simple to use and Ideal for Diverse Applications

Harken Industrial pulleys can be used in rope-handling applications across many industries:

  • Theatrical
  • Stunt work
  • Cable laying
  • Load towing/securing

Maintenance is Easy

The simple construction requires no lubrication. Simply flush with fresh water to keep bearings free rolling.

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 Pulleys

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.

Lightweight, Compact, Low-friction, Certified

Harken Industrial purchase systems increase operation strength, providing low-friction pulling power in a wide variety of pulling/lifting operations. Systems can be used on their own, or easily combined with an existing system for tensioning, deviation, or casualty transfer. Purchase systems come fully rigged with tamper-evident termination.

Simple to Use in Load-assist Applications

Harken Industrial purchase systems are used by emergency services and rescue personnel to help transfer loads and individuals from working ropes to alternates. The systems are also used to transfer loads in deviation, and to take the load when lifting inanimate objects.

Maintenance is Easy

To clean, simply flush pulleys with fresh water. As with all equipment, check regularly to make sure it is in good working order. Check rope for chafe and wear. Make sure tamper-evident seals are intact.

Gas PowerSeat® Ascender
Gas PowerSeat® Ascender

Part No. PWRS-G

The Harken Industrial Gas PowerSeat® ascender has revolutionized working at height, providing the worker with the ability to ascend quickly, stay in position longer, and work in comfort. The PowerSeat provides quality, convenience, safety, and is the best solution for completing a task on time.

Fuel consumption varies with weight and usage, but the motor is extremely efficient and only uses a few liters of unleaded gas with 4-stroke mix for a full day’s work at height.

The PowerSeat is simple to use and ideal for a wide range of applications, including wind turbines, building exteriors, and search and rescue – not only as a powered ascender, but also as a portable winch or hauler.

The portable unit weighs just 14 kg (31 lb), so it’s easy to carry around, yet strong, durable, and corrosion-resistant.

PS Speed Control

Speed Control

The unit is operated using a fail-safe dead man’s switch to control ascent speed, up to 15 m/min (49.2 ft/min).

PS Break

Brake

The braking system controls descent and provides workers protection against free-falls. The encapsulating jaw cover protects fingers and clothing from catching in the winch.

 

PS Ergonomical Design

Ergonomical Design

The PowerSeat is designed to stay in an upright position, conserving operator energy.

PS Durability

 

Durability

Stainless steel load-carrying gears and pins provide strength and durability. Sealed gearbox and high-load ball bearings reduce friction under load, are corrosion resistant, and do not require lubrication.

PS CE

Certification

The Harken Industrial PowerSeat is CE certified to the Machinery Directive and independently verified by Bureau Veritas.

Suitable for a Wide Range of Applications

The PowerSeat is ideal for a wide range of applications, including:

  • Construction
  • Renewable energy
  • Facilities management
  • Vessel maintenance
  • Theatrical
  • Telecommunications
  • Architectural
  • Utilities, Oil and Gas
