ACIMEX drop tables belong to our marine equipment range, just like the C-hooks and the lifting grabs. These solutions are aimed at handling breakwaters. Reliable and simple to install, the drop table fixes itself to its base and allows the positioning of these specific concrete blocks.
How does a drop table work ?
With the drop table, breakwaters of numerous types can be moved and positioned : TETRAPOD, ACCROPODETM (I & II), ECOPODETM, CORE-LOCTM, or even Xbloc®. These blocks, once assembled, form a dam. The table is used on working sites which create « moving » structures. Once fixed to an excavator or a cable crane, one sole technician safely manœuvres its load, rotating and releasing it with the help of the drop table.
