Load spreaders or lifting beams are used when loads need to be lifted on a single hoist but must be supported at two or more points. These beams have the eyes mounted on a drive so they can be moved, even when the spreader is loaded. It is best to slightly raise load, move eye to equalize the spreader, and then continue with lift.
Series 110 Spreader Beams are used when it is desirable to have swivel hooks connecting to your load. Swivel hooks change orientation to allow for a versatile connection point.
Lifting eye is made from mild steel and upper inside edges are ground to protect crane hook. Lateral stiffeners are also added to stiffen spreader beam.
Ends of channel are beveled to help protect users from sharp points. Oversized Swivel Hooks with latches are standard to allow for more room to insert slings. If price is of more concern than convenience, ask salesperson to quote with minimum hook size Sales@DownsCrane.com.
Special Fittings and arrangements are available. Please ask salesperson Sales@DownsCrane.com.
