Lifting Beams & Spreader Beams
Our lifting beams and spreader beams for hire, also known as spreader bars, have two lifting lugs evenly spaced to distribute your load when lifting materials via crane or hoist. They are adjustable and the underside of the spreader bar has 2 attachment points which attach the load commonly with lifting slings. Spreader beam lifting ensures that the compression forces of the lifting cranes lifting chains are reduced and consequently do not damage the shed barge and roofs, or bend long items such as roof sheets.
The main advantages of spreader beams is the multiple hook points on the bottom. This spreads the load more and is especially useful when lifting something that doesn’t have the structure to support its own weight. Another advantage is that they’re built with a single point connection at the top so they occupy less crane height to lift since rigging above the beam isn’t required.
