Crane / Hoist test weights are used in the periodic re-certification of lifting equipment. The Mars Metal Company, Specialty Casting Division will work with you to design test weights that exactly meet your requirements. Individual weights can be designed to achieve the desired total weight requirements by stacking or nesting weight combinations. This will allow you to test all lifting devices in your facility. Each weight is clearly labeled to ensure that the correct combinations can be selected to suit your testing requirements.
Lead offers a real advantage in space savings as lead filled test weights are approximately 45% heavier by volume than steel and more than 4.5 times heavier by volume than cured concrete. When size matters, choose lead filled test weights.
When size is less of an issue, choose all steel test weights. All steel test weights are generally lower cost than lead filled.
Whether it’s Lead Filled or All Steel test weights, we bring a wealth of experience to the table, so challenge us !
