Correct Shackle for Your Lifting Sling

By Tim Muprhy 5 months ago No comments

It is imperative to select the right shackle for your lifting sling. In addition to making lifting easier, this enhances overall safety. The decision depends on two things, checking recommendations from the sling manufacturer and using a little bit of common sense.

The Right Lifting Sling

First obtain the right lifting sling for your requirements.

You will need to know what type items you are moving, weights of the items, and other pertinent information. Slings are used, not only for lifting, but also pulling and holding loads.

By Tim Muprhy 5 months ago No comments

This has been an exciting couple of months here at Murphy Industrial Products, Inc. We knew there was a problem in our industry with getting the products needed to customers fast enough. So how do we fix this problem I asked? Me and the guys knocked around a couple of solutions but nothing seemed to stick.

So what did I do … Took a HUGE gamble and stuffed our warehouses with products so no one has to wait on anything, anymore at all. (shameless plug - still questioning that decision so come buy some stuff already). More than 80% of our orders now ship the same day. If you order it we’ll get it out to you that very same day.

Rigging Supplies: New Model Speeds Delivery, Selection

By Tim Muprhy 5 months ago No comments

Meeting construction deadlines and reducing downtime are critical whether the job site is a high-rise building or a highway infrastructure project. To safely and efficiently move heavy equipment and building supplies across the worksite requires not only cranes but also a variety of specialty lifting, pulling and tie-down products to control and secure the load.

At any time, progress on a construction project can come to a grinding halt when something unplanned occurs. For instance, a piece of equipment may need to be installed, repaired, or replaced — and specific equipment, such as a crane sling of a certain type, dimension, or construction must be available immediately to get the job done.

Choose the Right Rigging Equipment

When comparing your options for Rigging Equipment, it is important to choose equipment that will get the job done in a safe manner. Using the wrong rigging components is a recipe for disaster. With the right information, you will have no problem selecting the right equipment for a job while dramatically reducing risk to property and people.

Unfortunately, many companies do not possess the required knowledge about rigging equipment. This makes the selection process a major challenge. Between a chain sling, wire rope sling, and other options, it is easy to get confused and feel overwhelmed. Especially for heavy-duty lifting, it is critical that you know the differences between the various options for rigging supplies.

Get The Most Out Of Your Rigging Shackles

By Tim Muprhy 5 months ago No comments

Shackles are a quintessential element in rigging as they are used for not only lifting but securing loads, retrieval, fall precaution, and other activities.

Also known as a clevis, these shackles are made from high corrosion resistant stainless steel, carbon steel and steel alloy both self-colored and galvanized, which makes them capable of enduring years of tough rigging. However if not used properly you run the risk of not only breaking the shackle but injuring yourself or others.
