A selection of our certification including ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, SGS third party certificate of compliance, full membership of UK’s Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) and SIRA certification for Atex products.

Multi-immersion testing
After successfully completing a series of independent third party verification and testing programmes to established international standards, our latest being 3rd party multi-immersion tests at Catapult ORE in the UK, we are very pleased to be able to state that the SS19 and SS20 range of hoists are fit for use in multi-immersion applications.

The above statement is effective providing the timescales, pre-use testing, maintenance and service requirements as detailed in Tiger document Multi-immersion Instruction Document 201603 are strictly adhered to.

Tiger chain blocks & lever hoists achieve DNV GL third party verification We’re thrilled to announce that Tiger chain blocks and lever hoists (with overload limiters) have been verification tested according to NORSOK R-002. Testing was carried out by DNV GL AS at the company’s corrosion and materials technology laboratory in Bergen, Norway. NORSOK R-002 is one of the most prescriptive standards for lifting appliances and lifting accessories, going further than most standards to ensure complete safety in the oil and gas industry. It targets key known failure modes that can be apparent in mass produced branded products.

The scope included:

  • Overload protection load tests to maximum permissible load
  • Independent testing of the two independent brake mechanisms
  • Various load and functional tests
  • Tests of chain end connection to minimum chain breaking load

To meet the requirements for extensive corrosion protection (section 5.24) we were able to provide all the necessary manufacturing documentation to achieve verification against this critical part of the standard.
