Expertise for the inspection of load suspension devices

Slings, chain and rope hoists with special consideration of applications in ropes courses

In many cases, elements from the field of load-bearing equipment are used in the construction of ropes courses. Especially heavy-duty slings, chains or shackles are to be mentioned here.
