Sheave Blocks are common lifting mechanisms used for rigging. Using a sheave / pulley block in a block and tackle application reduces the amount of force required to lift an abnormally heavy object. A pulley system is used in conjunction with wire rope or other types of rigging ropes, by looping the rope through the pulley (around the sheave) several times before hooking to the object. The force required diminishes proportionately with the amount of pulleys or “loops” used during the hoist.
SuperLift’s range of sheave blocks is extensive:-
