Similar to the Liftmax® spreader bar, Liftmax® Lifting Beams are one of the most common lifting devices for material handling we fabricate. Lifting beams are required when headroom is limited and restricts the use of overhead rigging. Without the added overhead rigging to absorb the stress from the load, lifting beams must be designed structurally larger than spreader bars. Lifting beams are typically made from a beam and have a single top lifting point with multiple bottom lift points. The bottom lift points enable the user to specify exact lengths when rigging on standard or precision lifts. We have many varieties of lifting beams. Please contact our sales team with any questions regarding your specific lift requirements.
Bishop Lifting Products, Inc. features an in-house engineering team with years of industry experience, the latest design technologies and highest quality fabrication techniques ready to design your custom lifting devices. Our experienced in-house engineering and design team utilizes CAD, 3D modeling, and FEA programs. We are the lifting equipment design specialists geared specifically for building custom lifting devices according to the ASME BTH-1 design standard and ASME B30.20 “Below-the-Hook” standards.
Liftmax® lifting beams come standard with stainless steel data plates with individual serial numbers and RFID tracking and are proof tested to 125%.
