Examine Lifting Equipment to Meet with Industry Regulations

If the magnetic lifter is being used in the EU it must be inspected and maintained in accordance with the requirements of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations, PUWER (1998).

In line with PUWER 1998 :“Lifting Equipment” must be thoroughly examined and, where appropriate inspected, by a competent person at least every 12 months or 6 months in case of “accessories for lifting”. For areas outside the EU it must be inspected and maintained in compliance with local work standards and other standards for suspended load holding. Should the data plates become detached or damaged please contact us immediately for replacements. We recommend the following regular checks to ensure problem-free usage over many years.


All our lifters are covered by a one-year guarantee against manufacturing defects. The Ultralift Plus lifting magnet is covered by a 3-year warranty. The guarantee is subject to terms and conditions. They must have been used in accordance with the product specifications and guidelines stated in the relevant product manual.
