Lifting beams are one of the most important components of any heavy lifting structure. They are typically used to lift items such as steel plates and long or thin sheets of metal. They enable the load to be transferred with an even weight distribution. The lifting beam design includes a central attachment point on the topside, which is used to attach the beam to the crane. There are also attachment points at each end of the beam, and these are used to secure the load.
At Redfern Flinn Lifting Equipment, we offer a wide range of lifting beams to meet your specific requirements. You can choose from a standard lifting beam or an adjustable lifting beam. The latter option will enable you to move loads of just about any size thanks to the adjustable lifting points. Whatever your needs, you can rely on our team to deliver excellent solutions that make your operations safer and more efficient.
One term that many people use interchangeably with lifting beams is ‘adjustable spreader beam’. While it does fundamentally perform the same task as a lifting beam, an adjustable spreader beam actually offers several small points of difference. They differ in that they can provide an even weight distribution to items being moved in a lifting sling. Like lifting beams, an adjustable spreader beam enables you to transfer loads of any size.
Regular inspections and maintenance routines are required to ensure that your lifting equipment is functioning properly. Failure to schedule these services could result in your equipment breaking down, causing unnecessary production downtime and increasing safety risks.
