A Spreader Beam for Flexible Lifting Solutions
Spreader beams are ideal for lifting needs in environments where there is adequate headroom. The design of a spreader beam utilizes a two point upper lift with a bridle to provide additional stabilization to the lift. A spreader beam is an excellent lifting solution where the cargo is heavy or requires more than one connection point. A spreader beam is typically much lighter and a more economical to purchase than the standard lifting beam with a single bail lifting point on top.
Spreader beams from ELT, Inc. are custom designed, built and tested to meet your specific lifting requirements.
Spreader Beams for Heavy or Large Loads
Spreader beams can be utilized in rigging trees, extra large and/or heavy loads. Spreader beams employ multiple beams to help spread the load out and provide additional stability by adding additional connection points.
Spreader beams can also be constructed as an “H” shape creating a four point framework for lifting loads evenly with minimal angular deflection at the lift points. When lift points are far apart, slings can be utilized for loads that are longer or narrow for additional stability. This is an ideal configuration for situations where load control is important.
Flexible Lifting Configurations for Spreader Beams
Spreader beams can also be configured with multiple hook points along the beam to accommodate;
- longer loads needing additional stabilization
- heavier loads
- horizontal loads in space with less headroom
- multiple loads needing more than one connection point
