The launch and recovery phase with a rescue boat is probably one of the most dangerous operations that are done with lifting people at sea. That is why Henriksen has developed a complete range of lifting hooks and related products. All products are certified according to international regulations to ensure a safe lifting operation.
Henriksen Hooks - Offload
When the hook is in the closed state, a manual latch prevents the hook element from rotating, while a spring loaded pawl keeps the lifting ring securely fastened inside the hook.
When the hook is activated, the locking latch is removed and the hook is in the off-load state. When an off-load hook is subject to a load as shown, the hook is unable to rotate and release the lifting ring. This is due to its inherently stable geometry and we therefore say that is locked by its load. This is what makes our off-load hooks so safe.
When the the internal release mechanism has been activated and the load applied through the lifting ring to the hook approaches zero, the hook element is able to rotate and release the lifting ring. This means that the hook opens automatically when the boat hits the water. But only if the hook has been activated.
Henriksen Hooks - Safe Lifting
Light weight ring
The Henriksen Lifting Rings are made with safety in mind. The dimensions are designed to geometrically fit together with the Henriksen Hook. The gap on the handle ensure a safer lifting operation. The lightweight ensure that the crewmembers do not have to operate any heavy equipment.
The Henriksen Liftview system enables the user to view real time information about a lift, including load, pitch/roll. The user output is viewed on a screen that also logs every lift. This system will give the user some unique possibilities that will increase operational awareness, and thereby a safer lifting operation.
