Safe Working Load

Many of our hangers and hooks are now load tested.

We have built our own test rig so you can be more certain of the safe load carrying capacity of our range of frame hardware. Our little weight icon now shows in two forms, one black and the other black with a red dot.

The black one shows a load figure which is based on our experience and best judgement, we tend to err on the low side.

The black and red one gives a figure which is derived from actual test results on our rig. Typically, the figure is between 25% and 33% of the load at failure.

If something is very important to you, then please ask for a copy of the test report.
