Mississippi’s Industrial Safety Experts
The Certex branch in Jackson is a leader in industrial safety and fall protection. When Mississippi companies need safety products and services, they rely on Certex. We carry quality products from top manufacturers – such as Cooper Tools, Harrington Hoists and Straightpoint, and specialize in general construction and utility construction lifting products.
Jackson is currently the only location in Mississippi, but we have a strong presence in the southern U.S. In fact, we have 34 locations in the U.S. serving 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 Mississippi and around the country.
Lifting Products and Rigging Supplies
Certex Jackson carries hoists and load limiters, including puller hoists, cyclone hand chain hoists and electric chain hoists. Our electric chain hoists made by Lodestar offer power, flexibility and several important safety features. We have a diverse inventory of rigging hardware, including shackles, hooks, blocks, turnbuckles and much more.
Do you need wire rope and accessories? We have those too. Wire rope strands are designed with various combinations of wires and wire sizes to produce the desired resistance to fatigue and abrasion. It’s important to select the correct wire rope needed for each job. You can rely on the knowledgeable staff at Certex Jackson to match the job requirements with the optimum combination of wire rope properties.
We carry wire rope slings, wire mesh slings and nylon web slings. Wire rope slings, sometimes referred to as wire cable slings, are more robust and durable than nylon slings and have higher temperature limits. Wire mesh slings are used in industries where loads can be abrasive or tend to cut web slings. On the other hand, nylon web slings will not damage or scratch the surfaces of your products being lifted. We stock nylon slings up to 4″ 4-ply. If your job requires customized specifications, we can manufacture wire rope slings up to 1.5″ diameter and mechanical chain slings up to 1/2″ diameter. We also stock round slings.
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 Mississippi. 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 Jackson team can provide at your location. We also offer expert consulting, rescue plans and hazard analysis.
