Harrington Hoists launched its new Universal Beam Clamps, a product line that complements its core product offering of hoists, cranes, and material-handling equipment. The beam clamps are available in metric tons rated 1 through 10; they meet ASME BTH-1 and ASME B30.20, and comply with portions of ASME B30.16; and they have a design factor minimum of 5:1 per ASME B30.16 requirements.
The clamps are used when a temporary or semi-permanent hoist anchor point is required for overhead lifting and vertical rigging applications. Also used as a below-the-hook lifting device, these rugged beam clamps provide solutions for holding and positioning beams for construction. Features include a built-in suspension pin for low headroom, lock-nut feature to resist loosening, and an adjustable jaw opening for a wide range of tapered and flat-flanged beams. An optional suspender is available for perpendicular mounting and oversized hooks. (www.harringtonhoists.com)
