Harrington Hoists, Inc., Manheim, Pa., has released new Universal Beam Clamps. This product line compliments the company’s core product offering of hoists, cranes and material handling equipment. The beam clamps are available in 1 through 10 metric rated tons, meet ASME BTH-1, ASME B30.20, comply with portions of ASME B30.16, and have a design factor minimum of 5:1 per ASME B30.16 requirements. The clamps are designed to be used when a temporary or semi-permanent hoist anchor point is required for overhead lifting and vertical rigging applications. Also engineered as a below-the-hook lifting device, these rugged beam clamps provide solutions for holding and positioning beams for construction.
Clamp features include a built-in suspension pin for low headroom, a 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.
