8 Tonne Telescopic Spreader Beam

Made in Britain

Telescopic spreader beams are the perfect solution for quick adjustment! Built to order, in a matter of a couple of weeks.

Slightly heavier than a modular equivalent, a telescopic spreader beam allows for quick sliding adjustment between lengths, with the standardised adjustment points at 125mm or 250mm apart, giving a huge amount of flexibility. Britlift can also custom design a telescopic beam, to match your lifting requirements exactly.

We can also supply any associated rigging (chain slings, ploy slings, shackles, chain blocks, container lugs, load monitoring, etc.).

To view some different ways you can use spreader beams to achieve 2, 4, 6 or 8 points of lift then visit our Rigging Design page.
