Lifting & Spreader Beams

Lifting extremely heavy loads is part and parcel of many of our daily tasks, and as always, with such a strenuous and dangerous task, operating with the correct equipment is essential to achieving optimal productivity, efficiency, and most importantly, safety.

At Lifting Equipment Store, we guarantee that introducing a Lifting or Spreader Beam to your arsenal will pay dividends on operations, and as with all of our product ranges, we have access to the best and most reliable products on the market, from leading brands such as Modulift and Britlift.

Available from 4 Tonnes right up to a staggering 70 Tonnes.

We often find that people don't really understand the difference between the two - and yes, there is a difference. So here's what you need to know...

Both Lifting and Spreader Beam systems are designed to distribute the weight of a load to provide stability when lifting objects but in slightly different ways.

Lifting Beams are more suitable for low-headroom environments, attaching to a crane from a single central point, but feature multiple load attachment points across their base. Whereas, a Spreader Beam features lugs at either end that easily attach to a crane's sling. In addition, there are two further lugs on their underside which fix the load, creating a compressive load-carrying system, allowing them to carry heavy weight in comparison to their actual size.
