The basic spreader is used for lifting shipping containers and is equipped with 4 x 10 tonnes lifting lugs in the corners of the end beams that attaches the four corners of the container. Spreaders can be fitted to gantry cranes or can be designed to attach to a cranes hook. Fixed Spreaders are available in 20ft or 40ft ISO dimensions. A telescopic Spreader can adjust its length to lift 20 foot and 40 foot containers.
Lifting Beams are designed with a balanced structure to facilitate symmetric lifting of load, and therefore, better load distribution.
