Combination Lifting & Spreader Beams
Combination Lifting beams have a single centred lifting point on the top side of the beam to connect to a crane, hoist or other lifting mechanism. Whilst, a spreader bar or beam is a device that holds the legs of a lifting sling apart. They have two attachment points at each end of the bar. The main difference between a spreader beam and lifting beam is essentially how the force is distributed. A lifting beam or spreader beam should be inspected at a minimum of every 12 months by a competent person, in accordance with Australian standards.
