The market suddenly stopped offering approved man-riding crane hooks made of seawater-resistant stainless steel, so out of necessity in 2018, FUCHS Fördertechnik GmbH developed its own hook system: the FUCHS FH1/FH2 Bottom Hook Block (single fall and double fall). Primarily designed for luxury yachts and load cases with man-riding, the hook system can also be used in other areas and for normal load cases that do not involve man-riding:

Product specification
  • Type approved by DNV GL
  • Usable for load cases with or without man-riding
  • Compact design with low installation height and integrated hook weight (size S, M or L)
  • Swivel hook for fibre ropes
  • Self-locking as soon as hook is loaded
  • Easy and ergonomic opening/unlocking
  • Load capacity up to max. SWL 8.0 t depending on size and design
  • Safety factor 6× SWL
  • Made of forged stainless steel
