Spreader Beams consist of a long beam that converts the lifting load into a bending moment through the beam. This is a much less efficient use of material, and as a result, spreader beams are in general heavier than spreader bars. The main benefit of spreader beam is the substantially reduced headroom required to perform the lift. These qualities make spreader lifting beams well-suited to lighter, shorter span lifts that have a small headroom requirement, such as in smaller manufacturing shops or storage facilities. The NS-CSB 2x2 Crane Spreader Beam is 2 metres in length and has SWL of 2 tonnes. The 2x2 Spreader Beams are supplied standard with 5 lifting positions and also supplied with 2 safety swivel hooks.
