    All of our sockets are made entirely from galvanised steel (stainless steel available) therefore making them ideal for long-term exposure to outside conditions.  Properly used and maintained, sockets will give long life in arduous industrial environments.   

    Sockets are proof load tested to an overload in excess of standard requirements, usually 25% over SWL.  Under LOLER regulations the test is carried out and approved by a LEEA test engineer.  Man-riding equipment should be tested every six months and goods lifting equipment every twelve months.  All of our testing, if successful, is followed up with a relevant certificate which is stored on our LOLER online portal for your ease of use.  These can be viewed and downloaded at any time if required.
