Crosby® Cold Tuff® Hoist Ring 

Like Crosby's standard Heavy Lift hoist rings, the forged bail provides greater durability in potentially abusive environments. In addition, the design of the new HR1000CT "COLD TUFF" hoist rings, which are suitable for use to -50˚ F (-45˚ C), includes the following features which provide the assurance you require when making lifts in extreme conditions, such as subsea and salt water environments.

HR-1000CT & HR-1000MCT Features:
  •  All components are produced with a maximum hardness of 34 HRc.
  • All load bearing components have charpy impact testing.
  • The body, bushing, washer and bail meet impact requirements of 31 ft-lbs. (42 joules) at -4˚ F (-20˚ C).  The bolt meets impact requirements of 20 ft-lbs. (27 joules) at -150˚ F (-101˚ C). 
  • Components are zinc coated utilizing a thermal diffusion galvanizing process for improved corrosion resistance. 
  • Available in imperial and metric sizes.

DNV Personnel Basket
 An added service, we provide offshore customers is the ability to certify our personnel baskets to the DNV Offshore standards.  DNV has developed rules and standards for design, material, production and testing of personnel baskets. 

Liftmax® Personnel Baskets are fabricated from square tubing, expanded metal, and non-slip flooring.  Inward opening and auto-locking gates, toe plates, stainless steel data plate, and railing height requirements are standard. There are many optional features available as well.
