Look out for the logo!



If you don’t accept imitations, if you want to buy original, genuine SpanSet Height Safety, Lifting and Load Control equipment – look out for our new logo! 

From Ratchet lashings to Grabba Bags, SpanSet have been at the forefront of innovative design and manufacture for over 50 years. 




The company founders were involved in the design of the world’s first car safety belts which were made of high-strength fabric ribbon.  Many pioneering and durable inventions soon followed and were quickly employed in many other areas where up to that point, chains and wire ropes had been used.  SpanSet’s vast experience in webbing-based products provided the perfect background to invent the modern ratchet lashing and later the roundsling together with the European Standard colour coding for their use.  No wonder both are known as ‘SpanSets’! 


Lifting Training Courses

SpanSet introduced the colour coding system which was adopted as the European Standard for modern roundslings

Temporary Horizontal Safety Lines – the ‘Red SpanSets’  

For construction workers needing to gain access to unprotected edges using work restraint techniques, SpanSet offer a patented Horizontal Restraint Line system together with the Training.  A familiar sight on construction sites, ‘Red SpanSets’ include our patented TFI (Tension Force Indicator).  Workers know they have tensioned the line correctly and therefore the safe suspended clearance height.

Height Safety – it’s what we do. 



The Grabba Bag – avoid dropped objects with the only rated lifting bag! 

The original ‘bag built into a sling’.  SpanSet observed loads on construction sites, for example scaffold connectors, being lifted using an inspected and certified crane, sling and hook but being put into the equivalent of a ‘rusty bucket’ with no certification, rating or inspection.  This led to the design of our popular Grabba bag – rated to EN1492.1 Lifting Standards.  A genuine SpanSet Grabba bag is the only certified lifting bag available built with an integral sling.  Why use anything less? 

Avoid dropped objects with SpanSet!
