They are able to help you find precisely what you will need to get the job done safely.
With a wide variety of variations, sizes and weight limitations, it’s important to know what to find when choosing a snatch block for the work. Factors to keep in mind when choosing a snatch prevent for your rigging requirements:
Check the Functioning Load Limit (WLL) of both snatch prevent and the cable rope. If the WLL of the pulley is not appropriate for the WLL of the rope, it could create a dangerous situation if each one should fail.
Coordinate the size of the sheave in the snatch block to the size of the cable rope. If the cable rope is too large for the sheave, the prevent can crack. Generally, the wire rope-to-sheave size ratio should be 12:1 in order to hold the wire properly while under load.
Know your numbers. Just because a snatchblock can slice the direct pull load in half, choose a rigging pulley which has a rating of twice the draw of the winch you’ll be applying with it.
We carry various styles of heavy duty snatch blocks / wire wire pulleys; check the technical specs for each product for break power and load limitations. We as well carry a wide collection of wire rope.
Along with durable snatch blocks, we likewise offer smaller rigging snatch blocks and pulleys in a variety of designs and sizes, including stainless steel snatch blocks, sq . blocks, single and dual pulleys, swivel prevent , and more.
For use with everything from sailboats to ATVs, a snatch prevent can be a real workhorse. Known as a rigging block because it plays a part in or “snatches” the mechanical power of pull, it provides a unique mixture of power and overall flexibility. When used in combination with a winch, a prevent enables you to pull or lift weighty items by “breaking” the draw span between your object and the winch. This cuts the immediate pull load in half, which doubles the amount of pounds your winch can draw.
