Spreader Beams (for Crane or Forklift)

+ Add to Quote Request

Our  Spreader Beams can be used by either crane or forklift. They are a unique multi-tasking beam that is perfect for overhead lifting applications. Spreader Beams make light work of extremely heavy loads, lifting them with ease.

The Spreader Beams feature adjustable load suspension points. These hooking points can be moved along and set to three different positions – fully retracted, middle and fully extended. By moving the extendable arms, located at each end of the beam, the span is easily changed. The extendable arms are secured safely with locking pins.

All Spreader Beams are supplied with two safety swivel hooks. The extendable arms are zinc plated and the main body of the beam is painted in a visible ‘safety orange’ enamel. All Spreader Beams are safety certified in accordance with relevant Australian Standards.

Additional Information

Our Spreader Beams can be used by a forklift or crane!

When using a crane, loads can be lifted via the centre single hook point (middle position). This is now being used as a Lifting Beam. They can also be lifted using a two leg chain sling by hooking at each end. This is then being used as a Spreader Beam. If using a forklift, the slipper pockets allow for fast and safe connection to a fork truck.
