The harmonised European standard: EN14492-1 for power driven winches provide the means for conformity to essential Health and Safety requirements of the EN Machinery Directive.

BHW Group Limited products are fully compliant and carry a CE mark. A Declaration of Conformity is also supplied with each winch. BHW Group Limited aim to ensure the correct machine is supplied to suit the application and we welcome the opportunity of discussing the proposed application and offer advice. It will help us considerably if information regarding the maximum and average loads to be lifted or pulled – and approximate frequency of use can be provided.

An AC1000 Mk2 winch requires a safety factor of 3:1 and a wire rope to mean drum diameter* of not less than 12. The maximum length of wire rope on the drum is determined by the guideline that when all the rope is wound on, a distance of 1.5 x the wire rope diameter should be remaining from the top layer to the outer edge of the drum flange.

Winches with the potential to apply forces over 1000kg must be load limited to prevent them applying loads above the safe working capacity. Maximum wire rope length permissible on the drum must leave 1.5 x wire rope diameter from the top layer to drum flange.

The standard EN14492-1 considers all types of winches used for all applications and suggests guards are fitted if there is a chance an operator may become entangled.. It is also important for the safety and ease of operation for the user to clearly see the wire rope wrapping onto the drum to ensure serious bunching and resulting jamming does not occur.

In an application where hand tension is applied to the hook whilst the rope is being wound back on to the drum for storage there is a risk of the hand being pulled into the roller guide or drum. A short webbing strap should be used that is looped onto the hook to prevent the risk of this occurring.

* Mean drum diameter = the drum diameter plus the diameter of the wire rope. ** MBF = the Minimum Breaking Force of the wire rope.
