Our range of quality beam attachments you will find on this page includes a collection of beam clamps for lifting and a wide array of RSJ beam trolley options including our own LGD models for the lowest prices. You can use a beam clamp for static positioning or a beam trolley for moving loads across the beam. Trolleys come in three varieties; Push travel trolley, geared trolley or electric trolley, each having their own set of properties and benefits. So consider your options and choose the best beam attachment to suit your lifting operation, then order online or give us a call on 01384 76961.
Beam Attachments for Lifting
A beam clamp or a Girder clamp is a device which clamps onto a beam and stays in that location whilst a load is being lifted via a lifting device, although they can be removed and re-located, but not when under load. Beam clamps and girder clamps are classed as semi-permanent devices which are commonly available in various model types; different sizes may be found to suit different sizes of steel beams, but there are also adjustable versions available too.
Some clamps will have a scissor type action, some will have bolt fixings and some may have a screw lock type of fitting. Most types of beam clamp will encompass a locking device to ensure it is locked safely onto the beam; some models come with a built in shackle already attached to facilitate even easier attachment of other lifting gear.
Certain types of these clamps are extra robust and will incorporate extra reinforced side plates and jaws for those demanding jobs. Commonly obtainable in lifting capacities up to 10000kg the beam clamp offers a lightweight, easy to install lifting point from which to suspend your chosen lifting appliance.
Beam clamp brands
Choose from products created by companies like Camlok, Topal, Raptor, GT and many more major names.
The benefit of buying respected branded beam attachments is that you can be certain that you are getting the best in terms of quality, while also enjoying the benefit of our competitive prices.
You can also find lots more information about beam clamps over on our category page, including an instructional video that will demonstrate how to use this type of lifting equipment safely and with complete confidence every time.
Beam TrolleyA beam trolley also fits onto the projection/flange of a steel beam, however they run on small wheels so that they can move back and forth along the length of the beam, beam trolleys come in 3 forms, either push travel, where they are manually pushed across the beam, a geared trolley where they can be easily operated by pulling a chain to move back and forth with little effort, or else an electrically powered model, operated by remote control, all types can be moved even when loaded.
A beam trolley is therefore a mobile anchoring point for other lifting devices such as a hoist. The machined steel wheels on these trolley systems allow it to be easily traversed across the beam, especially the geared models, where the wheels are mounted onto encapsulated and lubricated, ball bearings; they also enable accurate positioning of the trolley and therefore the load.
Beam trolleys, often seen on cranes are obtainable in a wide array of models and capacities, often up to 20000kg. Because a trolley is designed to move back and forth over a beam, locking devices can be added to secure it into a preferred position if necessary.
Beam trolley options
As with all of our beam attachments and our extensive lifting equipment line up, you can search for specific beam trolleys based not only on their performance capabilities but also the manufacturers which designed and produced them. There are models from mainstream makers like Yale, Corso, Riley and a host of similarly reputable organisations. Because they are all grouped together on our site, it is simple to compare and contrast the different models and ensure that you are making the right decision.
Girder Trolley and Girder Clamps
Sharing many of the same properties as beam clamps, our girder clamps and trolleys are distinguished because they can act not only as an anchor point but also as a means of lifting beams and girders in industrial operations. These powerful, adjustable attachments are vital and even come in double-ended designs for added convenience.
