Some lead ballasts and counterweights are considered as tooling, to ensure balancing operations during maneuvers or load tests on lifting, supporting or handling equipments.
This type of counterweight is also used for forming and flattening steel or aluminum sheets for shipbuilding, or for bending in construction and civil engineering.
Some of our ballasts are used punctually for tests or checkings under load of overhead travelling cranes or handling gantries. They are sometimes calibrated and used as standard loads by verification or certification agencies.
Others are designed and developed to protect facilities or homes from the risk of marine submersion.
