A single top point lifting beam has a centre lifting lug at the top to accommodate a crane hook and 2 or more bottom lugs at each end for connecting shackles or slings.
A single top point lifting beam has a centre lifting lug at the top. This top lifting lug can accommodate a crane, hoist or other lifting machine. On the underside of the beam there are typically two or more evenly-spaced lifting lugs. The underside lifting lugs attach to and support the load via hook or sling.
A lifting beam converts the lifting load into a bending moment through the beam.
Lifting beams are well suited to lighter, shorter span lifts that have a small headroom requirement. As there is a single lifting point on the top for the crane to attach to, it doesn’t require the same amount of headroom that a spreader beam does.
The option of ram horn hooks on the underside of the beam in place of lifting lugs is also available.
