Load binders, also known as chain binders or chain tensioners, are designed to tighten chain tie downs in order to properly secure cargo that needs to be transferred. This type of material handling product is designed with chain hooks on each end and a handle in the centre in order to draw in the chains, adding the right amount of tension.


Industrial skates, also known as heavy-duty dollies, are used for moving heavy loads, machinery, and equipment in an extremely efficient and versatile manner. This type of material handling product is designed to allow for loads to be turned in any direction or rotated in place. Industrial skates are normally used in sets of three or more to sufficiently support and facilitate the movement of heavy loads and equipment.


Spreader bars are used to aid crane operators in picking up large and heavy loads. This type of material handling product works to distribute the load of a lift across several points in order to increase stability during hoisting. Spreader bars are commonly telescopic in length and can range in size from 1ft to 60ft or more.
