Headwater is well versed in the North American and Australian codes for vehicle roll-over protection. We have designed upgrades for many types of construction machines as a proactive safety measure. If your next construction contract involves high angle work or work close to steep banks Headwater can design and manage the roll over protection retrofit to keep your employees safe.
Heavy equipment can make any job easier. However, often the stock attachments are not suitable for the specific job requirements. Or, getting an attachment made through one of the dealers is prohibitively expensive and slow. Headwater has helped many contractors with machine attachments designed for their custom application. Our extensive library of ideas and designs ensures a fast turnaround that will fit your schedule.
We have man baskets for a variety of zoom booms, lift trucks, rescue vehicles, and custom equipment. All of our designs comply with the relevant CSA, OHS, OSHA, and ANSI codes. Contact us today for information on the stock designs or to discuss a new, custom, application.
Overhead Rotation System
As any shop foreman knows, positional welding will slowdown even the best welder. To keep projects on schedule an on-budget welding shops will flip and rotate the equipment to allow welding to be completed in the flat position. However, often flipping a structure or component can also be dangerous and time consuming. This is why Headwater has been working diligently with and international equipment supplier on an innovative shop rotation device. These proven devices come in many different models that range from 10T to 50T capacity. We have done a complete engineering audit to ensure this new equipment complies with all relevant North American codes. If your shop routinely turns or flips equipment to avoid position welding contact us today to learn how this inventive system can make your shop process safer while saving significant time.
Engineered Shop Stands
Gone are the days of scabbing together scrap iron for shop stands. OSHA and OHS now require engineered and certified shop stands for most applications. If you have already invested in new stands but need a SWL rating, Headwater can inspect, analyse, and reverse engineer and usually certify your existing stands.
When you have a heavy load to move, you need to know that the lifting system is correctly sized and the rigging used properly. However, many times off the shelf rigging isn’t suitable for the job at hand or the load is too high for standard parts. Often the existence of dynamic forces makes the job too risky to just go with the foreman’s best guess and too expensive to simply over-size the parts buy some exorbitant factor. Often a custom lifting devise is safer and more cost effective than catalogue parts. All of Headwaters lifting devices are certified and guaranteed.
ENGINEERED LIFT PLANS
Headwater is well versed in the relevant ASME, AISC, and DNV lifting codes so regardless what you are lifting, whether on-shore or off-shore, we can evaluate the equipment tie-off points, guarantee the loads, and account for the appropriate amplification factors to get the rigging sized right. Our documentation packages we supply with every engineered lift plan will allow your loads to be lifted without delay.
