Our excellent range of quality beam attachments includes an array of Beam Clamps, Girder Clamps and different types of Beam Trolleys.
Beam clamps, girder clamps and beam trolleys are designed to fit onto a flanged steel beam, like the type you would likely see on a mobile lifting gantry, a Jib crane or an overhead crane. The main purpose of a beam clamp or trolley is to provide a strong and secure anchor point from which to attach other forms of lifting gear, like hoists, for example.
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
A 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.
