Automatic hooks

Elebia_loader_crane.JPGELEBIA reports a fleet of trucks fitted with loader cranes and Elebia automatic hooks has been employed by Trotter UK to place temporary but robust advertisement billboards at construction sites, events, automotive forecourts, retail parks and other locations.

The company says the Trotter billboard concept was devised in Holland where loading, installation and removal of the structures has been supported by Elebia’s hook technology since formation of the business. Trotter UK uses the patented Elebia evo5 hook equipped with a magnet that both attracts and positions slings and other rigging gear, but each state-of-the-art mobile billboard is fitted with a ring that enables safe and efficient lifting operation.

Hugo Southwell, sales director, Trotter UK, said: “The Elebia hook has been integral to the quick and safe installation of mobile billboards at a myriad of locations across Europe and it will be equally important to our strategy as we grow a franchise also based on safety and efficiency.”
