  • Brake Winch

    The Tiger Brake Winch is a high quality multi-purpose winch. The twin pawl automatic brake ensures the load remains suspended when the crank is released and avoids unchecked descent of the load. These units meet and exceed all the requirements within BS EN 13157: 2004+A1:2009.

  • Worm Gear Winches

    The worm gear winches are more safe than the spur gear winches, due to the fact that 50% of the braking is done by the friction loss in the transmission. Subsequently, the load on the pressure brake is greatly reduced. Due to the higher friction loss in the transmission, the worm gear winches have a lower performance efficiency than a spur gear winch.
