Note: the T4 is rated to a maximum vertical load of 4 tonnes and a maximum span (or length) of 4.5 meters. This system is modular in construction and may be reassembled by trained riggers using different strut combinations to achieve any span from 0.5m to 4.5m.

The Traditional Modular Spreader beam is available in a huge range of standard sizes (4 tonne to 1000 tonne) and has been optimised to make it the lightest system of its kind worldwide.

IN STOCK and available off-the-shelf the sizes immediately available are 4, 8, 13, 24, 34, 50 and 70 tonne systems, with prices starting at £450. We can also supply any associated rigging (chain slings, ploy slings, shackles, chain blocks, container lugs, load monitoring, etc.).

The modular system is easy to handle, transport, store, stock and spec. We are able to manufacture bespoke custom sizes within 1-2 weeks.
