Crane Scales – FAQ’s

So what are Crane Scales?

A crane scale is a device which is attached to the crane hook to weigh the load which is being lifted. So by using a crane scale you will significantly reduce the risk of overloading the crane/hoist and therefore not only will this make the lift as safe as possible it will also prevent the crane/hoist from being damaged by overloading. This could potentially be very costly to repair or replace the crane/hoisting equipment, approved thus using a crane scale can also enhance cost efficiency.

Crane scales are frequently used in many areas where regular heavy lifting takes place, generic for example: warehouses; industrial areas; shipping industries and production plants.
