When a heavy object is going to be moved via crane or boom truck, it is important that everything be just right. This includes the rigging. Rigging refers to the equipment that is between the object being lifted and the crane. If it is not right, harm and damage could result. Reliable Lifting offers the best rigging services in New York City.
Why the Rigging Is Important
While the crane actually does the lifting, it is the rigging that will also bear the full weight of the object. Any problems or weaknesses in the rigging could lead to a break that could result in a serious accident.
Rigging Has Many Rules
A safe move requires that safe rigging be used. For this reason, many rules have been established to make rigging and slings safe. Certain components cannot be coupled together, and limitations have also been placed as to what constitutes a safe cable, etc.
In order to ensure the right rigging and a safe move, a trained expert who is knowledgeable of the latest rules is needed to recommend the best rigging for the job. This is even more important when the object to be moved is fragile or flammable. The presence of wind also needs to be taken into consideration. This will vary for each job, depending on the nature of the load and its weight. Our experts can provide you with the best rigging services in New York City.
