We stock both FRASOR and food-grade elevator belts in a variety of tensile strengths, as well as many different style/size elevator bolts in both metric and imperial sizes.
‘Our electronics range has now also grown to include the highly successful range of level indicators, and we now stock almost all of the electronics that 4B offer globally to support the growing requirement for products that meet the high standards of IECex certification.
