Certex Local Office in Greensboro, NC
Safety Products and Services in Greensboro NC
The Certex branch in Greensboro carries a wide variety of safety products including rigging equipment and lifting supplies. We also specialize in fall protection, providing not just the equipment you need, but comprehensive training for your workforce.
This location has been in business over 50 years, but under a different name. At that time, 90 percent of our business was logging products. We still serve the logging industry, but today we service a wide variety of clients including utilities, demolition, heavy haul services, and large equipment. Find out why companies like Duke Energy, D.H. Griffin, Guy M. Turner, United Rental, and the City of Greensboro turn to Certex for their safety needs.
No matter the size or scope of your project, our Greensboro team is ready to help you determine the products best suited for your job. You can count on the experienced staff, led by manager Bill Whitley, to meet your safety needs. Our branch is open Monday-Friday 7:30am-4:30pm.
There are 35 Certex locations in the U.S. servicing 11 states from California to South Carolina. Certex is known for providing industries such as construction, mining, aerospace, utilities and on-shore/off-shore drilling with the equipment needed to ensure job sites and workers are safe. In addition, we are one of the few lifting product companies in the U.S. to offer Fall Protection and Rescue Training. We’ve been in business for over 50 years, which is why we’re a trusted source in North Carolina and around the country.
Training, Inspections, Repair & Testing
Many Certex branches have developed specialized products and services to meet the needs of area businesses. For example, Certex Greensboro conducts rigging training and onsite sling inspections. Do you need to ensure your equipment has been installed properly and is working the best it can? Let our team visit your job site for a full inspection. If training is needed, we can get everyone up to speed. We also do lifting chain repair and load testing.
Certex Greensboro is a full line rigging shop. We stock wire rope (domestic and import), wire rope slings, nylon slings, and chain slings. We carry a full line of rigging hardware. In addition, we can custom fabricate a wire rope sling up to 1-1/2” diameter. We have a test bed in house and can load test any sling that we make.
Fall Protection Equipment
We carry a full line of fall protection equipment from top manufacturers including 3M, Capital Safety, Fall Tech, French Creek and Deus. We have harnesses, shock absorbing lanyards, tie-back lanyards, hooks, anchorage connectors, carabiners, roof anchors and more. We carry the High-Vis Vest harnesses, which uniquely combines traditional reflective vests with fully adjustable fall protection bodywear.
For latchways, we feature ManSafe overhead, horizontal and vertical systems. Some of the key benefits of ManSafe systems include: quick and simple installation, less costly than ‘I’ beam systems, and can be configured as a single span or multi span system.
You can see the full details of our fall protection products via the specification document on the Fall Protection page of our website.
Fall Protection Training
In addition to equipment, we offer a full curriculum of fall protection training to ensure the safety and productivity of your crew. We are members of the ITI Training network which provides world-class crane and rigging training to customers.
We can provide training right on your job site in North Carolina. We also have two state-of-the-art safety training facilities in Tucson AZ and Bakersfield CA. There your team will experience 8 hours of working with equipment from over 20 different manufacturers. The modern, climate-controlled environment creates ideal surroundings for learning and every course meets or exceeds applicable ANSI Z359, OSHA Sub Part M, CSA and Manufacturers requirements.
If sending your team to Tucson AZ or Bakersfield CA isn’t an option, take advantage of the training our Greensboro team can provide at your location. We also offer expert consulting, rescue plans and hazard analysis.
