Lifting Bag, Totally Enclosed

Lifting Bag, Totally Enclosed


In situations where insufficient depth of water precludes the deployment of parachute type lifting bags above the object to be raised, an effective alternative is the use of a cylindrical totally enclosed lifting bag.

The Totally Enclosed lift bag type can be secured closely to the article or shackled to straps passed underneath it.  Totally enclosed lifting bags offer an invaluable method of reducing the draught of vessels when launching, slipping or manoeuvring them in limited depth.

They can also be employed as pontoons for bridges, floating platforms, dock gates and military equipment.  These lifting bags also provide an ideal form of buoyancy for cable or pipeline float-out operations and are extremely stable under tow.
