Offshore cradles

Safe handling of casing, tubing and stabilizers

We are trying to develop cradles to the industry that are constantly over engineered. Our Hinge Lok™'s are designed for offshore transportation and protection of all types of casing, tubing, screen liners, expandable liners, completion assemblies, stabilizers and drilling jars.

We constantly try to develop the best material that can be made to ensure you and your staff the best possible safety.Security is crucial and we are very conscious of this whenever we develop our industrial equipment for the industry in general.

The Hinge Lok™ can be used with both conventional pipe handling and mechanized pipe handling systems. The specially designed removable pipe separators allow the same Hinge Lok™ to be used for various sizes of pipe and assemblies, eliminating the need for client to stock various sizes of Hinge Lok™ handling systems.
One of the main functions of the Hinge Lok™ is to dramatically reduce both on and offshore manual handling. Pipe, tally, drifting and centralizer installation can be carried out onshore and loaded into the Hinge Lok™ in running order prior to being shipped offshore.

This eliminates the need for these time consuming and manually challenging operations being carried out offshore. Pipe will not have to handle again until it is ready to run into the wellbore directly from the Hinge Lok™.

D3O uses a combination of patented, patent-pending and proprietary technologies to make rate-sensitive, soft, flexible materials with high shock absorbing properties. This product has been incorporated into the cross beams of the Hinge Lok™ Casing & Tubing Transportation Cradle. This product acts as a shock absorber during loading of the tubulars within the cradle. More about D30
