New - DNV GL design approved
12.0 t and 18.5 t pipe hooks


To complement the lifting solutions we can offer you, we have added DNV GL design approved pipe hooks (12.0 t and 18.5 t) to our product range. The designs - which we originally made for a major offshore pipelay and subsea construction company - are produced, tested and certified within our Group. 

Design compliant with DNVGL-ST-0378

 What makes these pipe hooks special? The designs are approved for DNVGL-ST-0378, the standard for offshore and platform lifting appliances. The DNV GL approved 12.0 t and 18.5 t pipe hooks are the first of their kind and are the perfect fit if you want to create a safe(r) work environment.

During the design process, all materials were carefully selected to withstand the difficult offshore environment. We used a special type of steel, which is suitable for such circumstances and has a high strength-to-weight ratio, creating a high quality and user-friendly product.
