The modular spreader beam kit is an adjustable spreader beam that provides an adaptable solution for handling different loads of varying lengths.
A modular spreader beam kit consists of a pair of end units with various lengths of interchangeable struts that can be assembled in between the end units.
Two lifting points on the top of the beam attach to the legs of a chain, steel wire rope or synthetic sling at a particular angle designed to ensure pure compression. The spreader beam distributes the weight of the load across the two slings. The two bottom lugs of the beam (one at each end) connect by slings or hooks to the load.
Modular spreader beams can be disassembled for inspection of the spreader beam components.
Due to the compressive nature of forces in operation, modular spreader beams are highly efficient in their use of material
The modular functionality allows for convenient transport of the beam, once it has been disassembled into its components.
A spreader beam offers better stability than a lifting beam. Therefore modular spreader beams are ideally suited for lifting very wide or heavy-duty loads.
Modular spreader beams require more headroom than lifting beams, due to the required two-legged sling arrangement at the top.
