Planning a crane job requires a complex preparation. Customer requirements are challenging, local conditions difficult, lifting capacity limited. The software solution CRANEbee supports you in the efficient selection of your equipment. Moreover, CRANEbee helps you to exceed all safety standards and to win over customers with professional planning.
Modulift Spreader Beams provide the ideal solution for most lifting requirements – versatile and cost-effective, the Modulift range has capacity from 2 to 5000t with spans up to 100m/330′. The Modular Spreader Beam configuration and interchangeable components enable Modulift Spreaders to be reused over many lifts. Designed by our engineering experts and manufactured in our own specialist facilities; the Modulift range are the leading Modular Spreader Beams on the market.
Every Modulift Modular Spreader Beam consists of a pair of End Units and a pair of Drop Links, with interchangeable struts that can be bolted into the assembly between the End Units to either lengthen or shorten the beam to suit the requirements of the lifting, making them resuable at different spans.
Lifting Beams and Lifting Frames are typically low-height solutions – they are the optimum solution for indoor lifts or where lifts have restricted headroom. Lifting Beams tend to be for lifts where the lifting points on the load are all in-line, whereas a Lifting Frame is used for a square/rectangular pattern of lifting points. Modulift offer a standard range of Lifting Beams ranging from 1t to 30t capacity, with spans up to 6 metres. Lifting Beam designs can be as simple as one central top lifting point and two no. bottom lifting points to suit a 2-point lift. Modulift can advise on the safest type of rig design for a particular application, and check the stability of the load, and can design Lifting Beams and Lifting Frames to suit more complex rigs, below are some examples.
Multiple connection points to suit different spans/sizes
Additional adjustability to accommodate loads with offset centres of gravity
‘Inverted’ Lifting beams: Tandem Lifting Beams where there are two top lifting points and one central bottom lifting point e.g. when turning two crane hooks into one central lifting point
Beams/Frames with shackle/crane hook/direct attachment to the load
Spreader Frames and Lifting Frames are recommended for loads that have more than two lifting points; they can also be the ideal lifting equipment for when headroom is limited. Modulift offer several types of Spreader Frames and Lifting Frames for Multi-Point Lifts; please see below for further details of our Spreader Frames and Lifting Frames:
Adjustable Lifting/Spreader Beams
The Modulift adjustable Lifting Beam/Spreader Beam utilising a clamp system provides a safe, fast, and adjustable beam, enabling users to lift from multiple points.
Easy to convert between a Lifting Beam and Spreader Beam
Spans of up to 6m and capacities of up to 8.5t depending on configuration
The adjustable lifting/spreader beam (or MOD CLS) is stocked as a boxed product for immediate shipping that eliminates delays incurred waiting for alternative solutions, which often have to be manufactured to order.
The MOD CLS is currently available in one size up to 8.5t capacity, depending on configuration, but offered with four clamps as standard to adjust the lifting points to enable flexibility between a single top lifting point (lifting beam) or double top lifting points (spreader beam).
The clamps are pre-assembled on the beam together with markers to show alignment and the centre of lift. Clamps on the upper/top side of the beam are of a larger rating and size than the two clamps fitted to the bottom/underside of the beam. The MOD CLS can also be adpated to suit with up to additional four clamps on the bottom side of the beam allowing users the flexibility of additional lifting points. If more points are needed, the flexible system can also be designed as H-Frame, providing infinite lifting points.
