Lifting and spreader beams consist of metallic beams that are suspended from shackles and lifting slings of standard and custom spread angles. Lifting beams
are lifting devices with a limited number of sling angles. Spreader beams are lifting beams that are designed to spread the set sling angles. The spreading is necessary to reduce the stress of the load and to prevent the slings from touching other surrounding equipment. Lifting beams designs are made for 30 or 45 degrees vertical inclination angles regulated by appropriate authorities that deal with machinery directives regulations. Lifting beams are suitable for onshore lifting operations. Spreader beams are made by manufactures according to customer specifications. The suitability of a lifting beam depends on several factors such as weight of the lifting beam, type of hoisting crane, the length of the lifting beam, the load-lifting height, and the environment of operation. The various types of beams include adjustable spreader beams, rigid spreader beams, and cross-shaped spreader beams.Purchase lifting and spreader beams from the largest selection only available at MRO Supply.
