RUD is a world-leading manufacturer reputed for top quality, ergonomics and safety in lifting technology and load securing for more than 35 years. We offer more than 700 tested boltable and weldable lifting points in load ranges up to 250t which meet maximum safety requirements in the crane industry. Our lifting points are also integrated into the crane during manufacture by leading crane manufacturers.
Hence, it makes sense to invest in RUD products, not just for safety but also to comply with site specifications. For example, our ICE Grade 120 chains are 30% lighter than the next nominal grade chain which means you carry less weight when lifting loads. Our VIP Maxi Construction Kit offers a WLL (Working Load Limit) of up to 126 tonnes when used with a combination of VIP chains in a double-strand configuration.
With RUD, you can be assured that your operations are safe on-site and for the crane operator.
What can RUD offer as a solution for your investment?
RUD Solutions for the Crane Industry
RUD has been providing lifting and lashing solutions for the crane industry in Australia and around the world. RUD products are trusted by some of the biggest companies in the mining, construction, and quarry industries.
RUD Germany provided lifting solutions for the Filstal Bridges along the Stuttgart 21 on the Wendlingen-Ulm route in Germany. The Fistal Bridges are the third-highest railway bridges in Germany made from pre-stressed concrete and are 485/472 mts in length and 85 metres in height at some points to the bottom of the Fils Valley.
In 2022, RUD Germany lifted the largest and heaviest lattice cage in Berlin. The lattice cage which was part of the infrastructure for a bridge pier in Berlin’s City Centre was 25 metres long and weighed around 56 tonnes. Read the full project here.
RUD Pre-Cast Concrete Hoops
RUD also offers Philipps Pre-Cast Concrete Hoops to lift bridge girders.
In 2022, RUD Australia supplied Philipps Pre-Cast Concrete Hoops to Universal Cranes to lift bridge girders on the Exit 41 M1 Pacific Highway Upgrade in Gold Coast. The 2 x span bridge consisted of 7 girders per span and each girder was 85t with 14 girders in total. Read more about the project here.
