RING-AND-HOOKSuperchute® Ring & Hook Assembly

  • Allow a pair of lifting rings to be rapidly fitted to any Regular Chute or Door Section for easy hook-ons
  • Top Hoppers are factory-equipped with lifting rings – sections below the Top Hopper are not equipped with lifting rings
  • Each ring easily accepts 2 hooks – the lifting bar hook & the hoist hook
  • The Superchute® Ring & Hook Assembly is highly recommended for Fishpole installations where there will be a sill or parapet at the Top Hopper level
  • Multiple length chute systems require Ring & Hook Assemblies for every length

 

Note: U-bolts bolted through the chute wall do not provide sufficient room for the connection of multiple lifting hooks.

Superchute® Rapid Warning Light System

“If there is a problem with the chute, how can I quickly tell
workers on other levels to stop using it?”

 

Our Rapid Warning Light System allows any worker to
instantly indicate a “Do Not Use Chute” situation to
workers on other levels.

 

This communication tool can help prevent an incident if:

  • The chute is blocked
  • The full container is being changed for an empty
  • There is a problem with the chute

 

Other features:

  • Modular, low voltage, electronic system that can easily expand to match the length of chute & number of chute entries
  • The entire system is watertight & features heavy duty components.
  • Electrician not required for installation – all you need is an electrical outlet
  • Assembles in minutes – no tools are required
