ELME Spreader Model 816 is a telescopic top spreader for the handling of loaded ISO containers. It is designed for use with straddle carriers. SPREADER The basic concept of this type of spreader has been used by ELME since 1978 and offers distinct advantages such as: - two parallel telescopic beams, assuring max overlap - beam sections dimensioned to absorb not only the vertical, but also the very considerable horizontal forces - pendular type of twistlocks, allowing 10 mm movements in all directions. They are produced from 42CrM04 forged and hardened steel and are extremely easy to service. CONTROL AND SAFETY SYSTEM Electrical systems monitor the state of the spreader at all times. Indicator lights advise the operator when the spreader is correctly "seated", "locked" or "not locked" and each signal is a precondition for the important safety functions of the spreader such as twistlock activation, extension and retraction and lift interrupt.

A signal which can be utilised by the lift truck manufacturer to block the lift function (lift interrupt) of the truck, is activated if the twistlocks of the spreader are not correctly engaged, meaning that it is unsafe to lift the load.
