Best Industrial Safety Products in Southern Florida
Are you looking for quality safety products like slings, hoists, cargo control products and wire rope? You’ve come to the right place. The Certex branch in Pompano Beach opened in 1962 and has since become a premier supplier of safety products and services in southern Florida.
In addition to Pompano Beach, there are Florida locations in Clearwater, Jacksonville and Orlando. In fact, there are 34 locations in the U.S. servicing 11 states from California to South Carolina. We’ve been in business for over 50 years, which is why we’re a trusted source in Florida and around the country.
Certex USA 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.
No matter the size or scope of your project, let the Pompano Beach team, led by manager Pat Natalizio help you determine the right supplies and equipment.
Serving Southern Florida Since 1962
Certex first opened a branch in Pompano Beach in 1962, and in 2017 we moved to our new location at 1551 West Copans Road. We’re proud to say we have been part of many high-profile projects in Florida. For example, we were the exclusive supplier to Bouygues Construction on the Port of Miami Tunnel project. The Tunnel opened in 2014 and “was complex, first and foremost, because of its scale: it involved excavating two 1.2-kilometre undersea tunnels to form a four-lane road, creating four floodgates, widening an 800-metre stretch of MacArthur Bridge by 6 metres and constructing an interchange to join up with the port’s existing road network.”
In addition, we supplied cables and stays for the Hard Rock Stadium roof enclosure. We supplied Anthony Crane with 800,000-pound slings for the heaviest and highest lift (140 feet) in the South Florida-Golden Glades Flyover Bridge.
Of course, not every project we take on is the scale of a tunnel, bridge or stadium. No matter the size or scope of your project, contact Certex Pompano Beach when you have lifting, rigging, and fall protection needs. We take the knowledge and expertise developed from these large-scale projects to bring you the best industrial safety in Florida.
Some of our other clients include Tropical Shipping Company, Florida Power and Light, Nextera Energy, and Demoya Construction Company.
Many Certex branches have developed specialized products and services to meet the needs of area businesses. For example, Certex Pompano Beach carries a variety of wire including crane wire rope, galvanized wire, and stainless wire. We service many crane companies and therefore carry tower crane wire rope, specifically for marine and industrial applications. Some of our crane clients include Maxim Crane, Allegiance Crane, Sims Crane, DC Crane and Precision Crane.
The primary factor in wire rope performance is selecting a wire rope with the best combination of properties for the job. The service life of that rope can be greatly extended by following a planned program of installation, operation, maintenance and inspection to avoid the most common causes of wire rope failure including kinking, overloading, dragging, improper spooling and whipping.
We also have a wide variety of wire rope accessories like locking hooks, eye hooks, swivel hooks, sliding choker hooks, sliding latch type choker hooks, snap hooks, swivels, wire rope thimbles, and turnbuckles.
Slings & Other Safety Products
We also 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 have web slings that are geared for travel lift, construction and marine. We have chain slings grade 100 for lifting.
Other supplies include – but are not limited to – chain falls and ratchet lever, rigging hardware of all kinds, shackles, wire rope clips, blocks, lifting eyes and cargo securing straps. We can also conduct pull testing and certification of rigging up to 100 tons.
Fall Protection Equipment and Training
Certex supplies everything you need for fall protection – from equipment to fall protection classes. We offer a full curriculum of training on fall protection equipment 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.
Our training program covers equipment from various manufacturers, so your team will be prepared and safe. Certex staff will help you meet OSHA requirements and show your crew how to focus on one step at a time with an unwavering motto of “Safety First.” We can provide your site supervisors with fall protection competent person training to ensure they are up-to-date on the latest techniques and equipment.
In addition to training in the field, we have two state-of-the-art facilities developed for immersive, hands-on learning. Choose either Tucson AZ or Bakersfield CA.

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.
