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.
More frequently, purchasing rigging equipment is left to the last minute, often because it is an afterthought, or because it is unclear what specifications the rigging requires for the job. Nevertheless, with the project deadline looming, site supervisors cannot waste time querying suppliers that cannot deliver the goods right away.
