Standing under suspended loads
If the lifting gear or load suspension devices were to fail, the transport unit/cabinet could fall.
This can result in death, serious injury or material damage.
Do not stand underneath or near to a raised load.
Observe the following points for safe transport:
● When using a crane to transport the equipment, keep to the permissible lifting capacity.
● If the cabinet center of gravity is off-center, use suitable and undamaged suspension
● If the cabinet has eye hooks, use them. In such cases, do not use any lifting rods.
Using lifting rods
When transporting by crane, note that the force is applied via the transport rails attached to
the bottom of the cabinet.
Inadequately dimensioned lifting rods
Inadequately dimensioned lifting rods are liable to bend or break. The drive could drop off the
crane. This can result in death, serious injury or material damage.
