Spreader Beams


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 a unique, awkward, heavy or requires more than one connection point. Spreader beams are 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 rigorously 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 awkward, heavy loads. Spreader beams employ multiple beams to help spread the load. Additional stability can be provided 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
