When a hoist travels above its upper height, the result can be dangerous. It can lead to:
- Hazardous conditions for personnel
- Unsafe conditions for equipment
- Damage to the hoist
To prevent this issue, anti-two block devices can be used to ensure that hoists cannot overtravel their upper height. In conjunction with this, Laser-View Technologies’ Crane Sentry® Hoist Side Pull Systems are often mounted below weighted upper limits on wire rope hoists. These hoists, as a result, will have both upper limit detection and side loading or side pull detection for a higher degree of overhead crane safety.
