Suspended Cradles

We provide suspended cradles to a wide range of structures including Tall Buildings, Chimneys, Cooling Towers, Flare Stacks, Bridges and Viaducts.

Cradles comprise of two electric hoists connected to each end of an aluminium cradle; each hoist is connected to two suspension wires with one acting as a fail safe wire in case the main wires fails. All suspension wires are hung from a weight tested roof beam or moveable gantry.


Cradles erected by PCR have recently been provided to the Walkie Talkie building in London.

Before use each cradle is weight tested and logged into a site lifting log.

Designed to BS EN 1808

On completion of the installation the cradle is weight tested and inspected by a third party lifting house.
