PROJECTOR LIFTING SERVICE

HeavyTorque Issue Eighteen: Projector Lifting Service

A MULTIFACETED LIFTING LIFE

OVER THE YEARS PROJECTOR LIFTING SERVICE HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN MANY COMPLEX LIFTING AND INSTALLATION JOBS AND HAS ESTABLISHED A STRONG REPUTATION IN THIS FIELD. BOB BEECH TALKS TO MANAGING DIRECTOR DUNCAN ROGERS ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE OPERATION AND THE CHALLENGES IT FACES ON A DAILY BASIS.

The business of lifting, jacking, skidding and moving heavy loads, particularly in confined spaces, is often a key aspect of many heavy transport operations, many of the techniques employed have been developed and perfected over generations. These skills have been handed down over the years and the use of modern technology, particularly hydraulically operated jacks, gantries and lift systems has taken quite a bit of the backbreaking slog from this type of work. It still requires a lot of manual labour to set up the equipment, but for many the use of hand-operated- jacks backed up with elaborate timber packing in order for the cargo to reach the required location, is thankfully a thing of the past.

Modern high capacity cranes have certainly revolutionised this sector. Very large mobile cranes, in both wheeled and tracked form, are able to lift huge weights nowadays, but they often need a lot of room to operate. Recent developments with very high capacity knuckle-boom cranes mounted on road going truck chassis are a very useful addition to the specialist transport and installation sector. These machines are able to lift considerable weights in confined spaces, particularly inside buildings where the roof limits overhead clearance, but there is often still a requirement that is beyond their capability and alternative systems and techniques have to be used.

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
