Pewag Profilift Gamma PLGW-SN

Pewag Profilift Gamma PLGW-SN

The innovative tool free design of the PLGW-SN lifting eye nut is a patented concept in tool free anchorage by Pewag. This new design allows the lifting eye nut to be tightened and aligned manually in the direction of the load by engaging the special locking clips on to the integral nut which are retained in position via the patented spring. If desired, the eye nut can be tightened using a commercially available ring spanner.

The PLGW-SN is 360° rotatable and has a safety factor of 4:1 against breakage in all directions and can be loaded to full capacity throughout the 180° load range. Each lifting eye nut is marked with an individual serial number giving full traceability. When used in a vertical lift the capacity can be increased according to the load tables provided.

Each PLGW-SN lifting eye nut is supplied packed with a User Manual which includes load tables for the various applications of use.

Tool-free assembly and disassembly
The clips in position 1 do not have contact with the nut (fig 1)
• The clips are kept in position by the patented spring
• The eye nut is free to rotate

The clips in position 2 are in contact with the nut (fig 2)
• The clips are kept in position by the patented spring
• The eye nut can not rotate i.e. the fastening torque is transmitted to the nut which can now be tightened or unscrewed by hand.

Permissible usage

Ensure that the PLGW-SN load capacity is in accordance with the inspection certificate, the loads are within the permissible direction of pull (fig 3) and also within the WLL stated in the tables supplied. The locking clips must be disengaged to allow free rotation of the eye to the line of pull of the load.

Non permissible usage
Ensure that the PLGW-SN can not be subjected to improper loading due to:

• the direction of pull being obstructed
• incorrect direction of pull on the ring (fig 4)
• load ring resting against edges or load
