Britlift Lifting Beam

Direct to hook / Strip lug

A direct to hook top lifting lug is the best way to save headroom and often used for lifting indoors.

A strip lug system for top/bottom lifting points is a great way to achieve a flexible and versatile system. Strip lugs can be paired with direct to hook, central top shackle and semi-spreader style lifting beams.

Britlift can design and supply your whole lifting system, including associated rigging.

Britlift Lifting Beam

Semi-spreader / multi-point

A Semi-Spreader lifting beam refers to a lifting beam with a 2 leg top sling connection. A pair of connection points on top of the beam helps to minimise the bending forces within the section and as such a Semi-Spreader will often be a lighter and cheaper option.

A 2 leg top sling will also provide a more stable lift and provides the option for adjustability if using chain.

Rig design required? Ask for details.

Multi Lifter Beam

Plate Lifter

1200mm and 2000mm long options,

1 tonne, 2 tonne, 4 tonne, and 8 tonne lifting capacity options.

The Multi Lifter is an off-the-shelf lifting beam ideal for smaller capacity lifting requirements and can be used as both a lifting beam (with central top lifting point) and a spreader beam.

This flexible little system comes off-the-shelf and delivered within a matter of days.

Counterweight Lifting Beam

Counterweight Lifting Beam

A counterweight lifting beam is commonly used in a construction environment to lift/install an item underneath an overhang.

We can design and supply a counterweight lifting beam of various lengths and capacities, and will design a bespoke system to fit your specific needs.

As part of the supply we will also design and supply the rigging system with a drawing provided at order for your approval.

Semi-Spreader Sliding Clamps

Semi-Spreader/Sliding Clamps

Combining a semi-spreader with sliding clamps is a fantastic way to offer quick adjustment. Whilst this particular design is commonly used for loads of less than 10 tonnes, it can be engineered to offer higher working load limits (WLL), after some design tweaks.

Contact us to see how we can help.

Heavy Duty Multi-Point Lifting Beam

Heavy Duty Multi-Point Lifting Beam

Lifting beams come in various types, lengths, capacities and for all manner of lifting scenario. Multi-Point lifting beams can be designed to offer allowances for offset CoG, overcome particular lifting challenges or simply offer a large WLL, or span.

Contact the team today with details of your particular challenge.

Bespoke Lifting Beam

Bespoke Lifting Beam

Consultancy design also available if required.

Render Engine Lift

Full Lifting System Design

Sometimes you just do not know how best to lift something, or you simply want a company that can supply a full lifting system to spec. We can help! Our engineers will work with you to understand your particular lifting scenario/needs and design to suit.

This is our specialism, have a chat with our engineers.

Vestas Lifting Beam

Lifting Beam with Direct to Load Fixings

Combining a Lifting Beam with a bespoke load connection/lifting attachment might be quite a complex task for most, but at Britlift we have degree qualified mechanical/structural engineers who can work with you to design the most effective and efficient system for you lifting needs

Modular Lifting Beam

Modular Lifting Beams

Available in a range of lengths and capacities, Britlift can design and manufacture a modular lifting beam, allowing for current/future additions/adjustment, ease of storage, ease of transport, reduced handling weights, and more!

Weighted Lifting Beam with Holes

Weighted Lifting Beam (winding off)

A weighted lifting beam may not be the most common of requirements, but if you are looking to add weight to your rig for a particular lifting case such as winding off, then the Britlift engineers can engineer the most suitable solution for you.

Castellated Beam

Castellated Beam

Castellation offer an incredibly amount of lifting point adjustment, as well as being quick to make those adjustments, and easy to use. They can be a little heavier than traditional lifting lugs, but if speed of adjustment is the priority, this may be the system for you.

Looking for something different?

Britlift can design and manufacture any below-the-hook lifting system to suit any application and environment.

If you have a 2 point lift and no height restrictions then maybe its a spreader beam you need? Visit the products page (above) and click on spreader beams.
