Arizona Industrial Safety and Fall Protection

The Certex branch in Phoenix is a leader in industrial safety and fall protection. When Arizona 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 we specialize in made to order web slings, chain hoist repair and pull testing up to 350,000 lbs.

In addition to Phoenix, Certex also has a location in Tucson. In fact, there are 34 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 have two state-of-the-art training facilities in the country, and one of them happens to be in Arizona. At our Tucson training facility, your team will participate in immersive learning with 8 hours of hand-on experience working with equipment from over 20 different manufacturers. The modern, climate-controlled environment creates ideal surroundings and every course meets or exceeds applicable ANSI Z359, OSHA Sub Part M, CSA and manufacturers requirements.

We focus our course offerings to enhance your safety culture through unbiased overview and exposure to all manufacturers equipment. We have a two-day course for fall-protection competent person (which includes equipment inspector training), an authorized user course, equipment inspector course and competent person refresher.

Proper training increases profitability and productivity for your company, and we can create courses specific to your needs. We also provide expert consulting and hazard analysis. If sending your team to Tucson isn’t an option, our Phoenix branch can provide training right on your job site.

Installations & Services

Maintenance and inspections are also offered on an annual or as needed basis. Replacement andor repair of your equipment is also a part of our service offerings.

Wire Rope

Certex Phoenix carries a variety of wire rope constructions and capacities. From small diameter GAC wire ropes to large high-performance ropes, you will discover that there isn’t just one type of wire rope that’s perfect for every job.

Wire rope is made up of all independent parts – wires, strands and cores – that continuously interact with each other during service. Wire rope engineers design those parts in differing steel grades, finishes, and a variety of constructions to attain the best balance of strength, abrasion resistance, crush resistance, bending fatigue resistance and corrosion resistance for each application.

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.

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.
