Working between the hook and the load Product Brochure Safe Lifting Solutions


Modulift Spreader Systems Working between the hook and the load Modulift Spreader Systems are a cost-effective and flexible option for lifting objects where there is a possibility of crushing the load and where slings connected to the load are required to be vertical. The modular concept is based on the assembly of a pair of end units with drop links, which provide the connection between the top and the bottom slings, and a combination of struts of different lengths bolted between the end units to achieve variable length capability. In use, the bolts do not carry any of the lifting forces but simply connect the assembly together while the geometry of the system does the work. The Modulift Spreader System enables slings to connect to large and bulky objects in a vertical attitude. Built using a unique engineering formula, the spreaders are designed using their lightweight structure to resist the compression forces of the lifting

arrangement. The design utilizes one of the most basic structural engineering elements, that of a pin-ended strut. The shackles which connect the top slings to the spreader, provide the pin and give flexibility to the geometry of the slings which prevents bending forces being generated by the lifting process and transmitted into the object being lifted.

and lengths from 1’ to 170’. The system is used for the smallest maintenance work to the largest lifting jobs in many industry sectors including construction, maritime, offshore, oil and gas, industrial and aerospace industries. All utilize the modular system to enable the lifting of various loads, without the need to buy or rent new spreader beams for every different job.

Modulift Spreaders are optimized for weight at every size. The unique capabilities of the modular system add to its benefits through easier and more maneuverable ground handling, easy build and storage capabilities and with a range of components to make up the spreader, gives it a multi-use feature and a cost-effective solution over a range of lifts.

With safety being of paramount importance, lifting equipment is strictly regulated to meet with all safety and design regulations and each Modulift Spreader Series has been proof load tested in the Modulift compression test rig. To be able to proof load test to the maximum safe working load and span the test rig has the capability to test spreaders up to 5000 tons.

The Modulift range comprises 16 systems, which provide lifting capacity for weights between 2 – 5000 tons

QuickJoint What is a QuickJoint? - “It’s only the future” says Modulift QuickJoint (QJ) is the new addition to the Modulift Spreader System. QuickJoint has a similar arrangement to the standard Modulift Spreader system and retains all the flexibility with the improved ability to be assembled quickly.

QJ2: WLL 2 Tons to 4’ QJ4: WLL 4 Tons to 6’ The compact size and light weight of the QuickJoint Spreader brings a new reality that Spreaders are no longer bulky and difficult to take to site. The convenient carry case will ensure that QuickJoint creates new, easier work procedures with the ability to select, carry and use appropriate lifting equipment in machinery assembly, installation and maintenance.

Features: • Fast assembly due to patented QJ design • Light weight: Less than 18lbs • Handy carry case enables the QJ to be easily moved to a worksite before assembly • Optional large carry case to enable slings, rigging and small lever hoist to be carried with QJ BENEFITS: • QJ’s light weight aids compliance with Manual Handling Regulations and PUWER • QJ design ensures test assembly on site making QJ a cost effective tool • Rapid assembly takes the chore out of correct rigging and slinging and reduces damage from sling compression

QuickJoint2 - The future of portable beams from $1,134 This is why we like to keep our design engineers on a diet of fish and omega oil... 1. You Wanted Fast Assembly We wanted to give you a Spreader Beam that was quick and simple to assemble and so our team created the patented QuickJoint Design! 2. Strong But Lightweight The entire set of components weighs less than 18lbs for true portability and great durability 3. Handy Carry Case Our carry case enables the QuickJoint to be easily moved to a worksite before assembly.

QUICK RELEASE PIN:

Applications: • Mechanical and Machinery Installation • Mechanical and Machinery Maintenance • Aerospace Maintenance • Ship’s Machinery Maintenance • Process Equipment Maintenance

4. Optional Large Carry Case Our optional large size carry case will enable you to carry the slings and other rigging, including a small lever hoist with the beam.

TYPICAL QUICKJOINT ASSEMBLY

5. Multiple Applications QJ2 can be used for a variety of applications including; installation, maintenance, aerospace and process equipment maintenance. 6. Watch out for the new QJ family The future starts today and soon you will be able to see the new QJ4 and 6. Coming soon to a crane or hoist near you!

Lifting Rigs Made Easy Your guide to some of the configurations available to you

2 1

1. Simple single system 2 point lift A single Spreader is the simplest configuration and is suitable for 2 point lifts. The Spreader absorbs the compression forces to protect the load being lifted. 2. Single system 4 point lift This configuration again used a single beam where the load being lifted requires four individual lifting points. 3. 1-over-2 rig We use this configuration when vertical slings are essential. By varying the sling lengths, we can also take into account an offset center of gravity.

3

4

4. 1-over-2 inline rig Ideal for those lifts where the span is long and potential bending of the load is a problem. 5. Various multi Spreader System rigs With our expert help we can address most lifting issues using a combination of our products to fit the application and the circumstances. 6. Lifting Frame We will even design custom solutions like this lifting frame.

Why Modulift? Why choose Modulift when I can make it myself? Our modular beams are already designed, fabricated, and fully tested and certified. With many sizes in stock we can deliver to you within a couple of days

But isn’t it cheaper to make it myself? Probably not! Have you factored in the following costs? Engineering Consultant - How much does it cost to get an expert to provide the right solution for your lift? Our specialist in-house engineers assist our customers with all their lifting problems to ensure you get the right product the first time! Designer - Cost per hour to design a one off beam (our beams are pre-designed). Fabrication - Cost of interruption to normal workflow and set up costs for a custom job (we batch produce spreader beams which minimizes the cost per unit).

Steel - Cost of steel. We purchase in large quantities to get the best available price for you. Testing & Certification - All lifting equipment MUST BE fully tested and certified to ensure it meets safety standards - where will you go and how much will it cost? Liability Insurance - Are you insured if the product fails during a lift? Lead time - How long will it take from start to finish? 4 weeks? 6 weeks? 8 weeks? Modulift Spreader Systems are available now!

Ensure a safe and cost effective lift with the range of modular spreader systems we now offer...... • Products range from 2 - 5000 ton capacity with spans from 1’- 170’ • Modular system for easy transportation and storage • Rig planning support service and custom design available
