Lifting Gear

Proof and shock load testing of all lifting equipment is carried out in-house, along with the provision of equipment for hire or sale. Therefore, when you hire or buy from Thameside Lifting, you can be sure everything comes fully tested and maintained to the highest standard.

you’re in safe hands

Thameside Lifting was established in 1978, so with all that experience you can be assured you are in the hands of the professionals.

As well as the many items we have for hire and sale including safety harnesses and work at height equipment, we also carry out proof and shock load testing of all lifting gear.

Both on-site and in-house inspections address the specific risks associated with the use of lifting equipment. We thoroughly examine your items for defects before initial use and proof test as part of your agreed maintenance and repair programme. Shock load testing is performed on web slings to check for degradation, ensuring they are safe for use.

Because we expect you to be able to depend 100% upon our high standards to cover all your safety needs, our LEEA Qualified Engineers undertake all installations and testing of equipment to ensure yours complies with current PUWER and LOLER regulations.
