We lift people. That entails a deep respect for all alternative scenarios and only one simple rule applies; our hooks cannot fail. The brand memento has always been and still is to ensure a safe lifting operation. Henriksen Hooks have been widely seen as a benchmark for decades, and is a firmly established trademark for professionals in the maritime and offshore segment. The operational safety, simplicity and working reliability of the Henriksen Hooks is key for our customers and users. We also provide an established and operational exchange and re-certification program for all users.
All Henriksen hooks can be used in combination with an Integrated Henriksen System (IHS) and a painter hook. We recommend using a IHS system anywhere applicable as it removes the possibility of major operator errors and thereby significantly reduces operational risk.
The Henriksen Lifting Rings are made with safety in mind. The dimensions are designed to geometrically fit together with the Henriksen Hooks. The gaps on the handles ensure a safer lifting operation.
Lowering the boat is a very dangerous operation. Henriksen Hooks are off-load hooks, meaning that the hook cannot release the boat until the boat is waterborne and thereby avoid dangerous and unintentional hook releases. The off-load function is a result of the fundamental geometry of the hook, making them inherently safe.
A swivel joint is mounted between the hook and the lifting frame in order to reduce sideway forces. We recommend installing swivel joints on boats which are frequently used and/or boats that will be launched and recovered in rough sea.
The Henriksen adapter plate is special designed to fit most of our hooks and swivel joints. All adapter plates are prototype tested by DNV by 6 times WLL. We do provide drawings to boat builders that want to integrate the adapter into their own boat design.
