Hoistech Ltd have a full selection of beam clamps, an ideal solution to create a vertical fixed lifting point on any I-beam, RSJ beam, or universal column. Simply rotate the vice like handle to attach. A range of jaw widths and capacities are available on request. The standard capacities of beam clamp stocked by Hoistech are 1T beam clamp, 2T beam clamp, 5T beam clamp and 10T beam clamp. Beam clamps are not to be used as a lifting device but rather as an anchor point. Beam clamps are most often used as a means of suspending something from a beam such as a lever hoist, a chain block a wire rope hoist or a Tirfor.
There is a shackle on the underside of the clamp to which the top hook of a lever hoist, a chain block a wire rope hoist or a Tirfor can be attached. Alternatively, a polyester websling, a chain sling or wire rope sling can be suspended from the clamp. An alternative to a beam clamp is a push trolley which grips the beam like a beam clamp but has wheels on the inside which allow the clamp to travel freely along the length of the beam.
