What is a Lifting Beam?
A beam in which the load lifted mainly imposes a bending stress in the beam itself defined as a lifting beam. The basic arrangement of such a beam has a single attachment location or lug at the center on the top side of the beam for connection to a hoist, crane, or other lifting device. There are also multiple evenly spaced lugs (two or more) on the bottom side of the beam in order to it attached to the load. At Kennedy Wire Rope & Sling Co., we offer an array of lifting beams to help you fulfill your application requirements.
