Nance and Underwood Now a Horizontal Tension Testing
Facility to Accommodate Wire, Rope Lifting and Rigging Components
Nance and Underwood Rigging has
completed the construction of a 20,000 lb Horizontal tension test bed at our
Fort Lauderdale Facility. This Tool will shorten the turn around time for
bridles, crane hoist, hooks, chain falls and davit components as well as
reduce the cost in manufacturing of rigging and lifting components. By
performing these inspections and tests in house we are able to keep our
prices lower than our competition.
For the first time a Safety Access System has been color matched to the vessel. This project is a success. The colored (White) coating is of a more durable coating than the typical hard anodized surface.
Nance and Underwood Rigging extends thanks to the client as well as to the OEM provider who approved this application. Next is a Navy Blue system to match the hull sides on a new build!!
