Lifting beams are important tools in the industry, designed to be a secure and stable lifting solution for loads with varying sizes, shapes and weights. Lifting beams are a popular type of below-the-hook lifting tool, a type of equipment with components like slings, hooks and rigging hardware for additional security.

How do you lift road plates?

Road plates often have existing lugs or holes to make lifting easier. Lifting devices, like road plate lifting tools, can be used when lifting to reduce strain. They are designed to be inserted or attached directly to the plate, allowing for safe and efficient lifting.
