Material Handling

When it comes to material handling - knowing that your equipment is up to the task is critical. At Columbia Safety and Supply, we pride ourselves in being your gear experts and helping you be safe so you can do more.

Our selection of material handling equipment includes shackles, slings, and hoists.

Shackles: Shackles are a key component of any material handling setup. Having the right shackles can be the difference between a job running smoothly and having a whole range of different problems. Our selection of shackles includes a variety of sizes and metal treatments so you can get the perfect shackle for your material handling situation. We also have a variety of both domestic and imported shackles so you can ensure that you're always in compliance.

When picking your shackles there are a few key points to make sure that you pay attention to. The first point is the country of manufacture. Many times it is required that you use a domestically made shackle due to manufacturing and testing standards. The diameter is important too, after all a shackle that won’t fit isn’t of much use. Lastly, the WLL or working load limit to ensure that your shackle can handle the load you plan on lifting.

Slings: Material handling is a diverse job and when it comes to doing it properly you will need slings that are just as diverse. We’ve got slings in all sizes and materials to ensure you’ve got access to the equipment you need to get the job done. From endless web slings to wire rope slings, and everything in-between, we’ve got just the sling for you.

We also feature sling multipacks. These sling kits are built to help outfit your crew with all the slings they need while saving cash by buying in bulk. You’ll be up and running in no time with our custom-built endless sling packs.

Hoists: We know you’re strong, but making heavy lifting a little easier can help a day on the job go a lot smoother. Our selection of chain & cable hoists can help you get the job done. We offer a wide range of hand and lever hoists so that no matter what the job requires, you’re ready to tackle it. With hoists from industry-leading brands like JET and Tuf-Tug, in a variety of load capacities and lengths, you’ll find a chain & cable hoist for any situation.

When it comes to picking out the right hoist there are a few things to make sure you check. A big factor is weight and size. A heavy hoist doesn’t always equal a strong hoist. Modern metal like aluminum can be as durable and as strong as all steel, with significantly less weight. When it comes to size, a compact hoist can help save space and with modern designs, the compact body doesn’t have to sacrifice strength or durability. Of course, the two most important factors are capacity and lift. Ensuring that your hoist has been designed to lift the weight you need at the height you need it will ensure that you can get the job done and stay safe.
