All lifting equipment, be it crane or telehandler has to be equipped with up to date lifting capacity data typically in the form of a Load Chart. Load Charts refer to the crane’s capabilities, detailing its features and how its lift capacity varies when considering distance and angle. Before a crane is rented, transported, employed or purchased, the crane Load Chart must be consulted by the crane operator, site supervisors, and even the sales person at the rental company to ensure the equipment is working within its lifting capacity.
As a critical safety component a Load Chart has to be capable of withstanding the rigours of daily use sometimes in an open cab and exposure to the elements. It is essential therefore that the materials and reproductive process are tested to the same level as Safety Critical Decals for resistance to UV weathering, chemical and abrasion abuse. They also have to be tested for tear resistance where pages are mounted in ‘flip chart’ format.
