The container beams from OX Worldwide are an optimal solution for the transport and handling of containers.
Sea containers are usually loaded using rectangular container lifting beams that have a twist lock at each corner to attach them to the container. This means that the width of this lifting beam is exactly the same size as the load to be handled. This makes the lifting device incredibly heavy and bulky, which is particularly noticeable during loading or storage.
OX Worldwide’s container beams are less bulky and far more efficient as they consist of a single beam the width of the container. The slings or lifting chains are attached to the four lower attachement points of the lifting beam, which have a container hook on the side at the ends. These container hooks are only attached to the lower corners of the container.
Container beams from OX Worldwide with a load capacity of up to 35 t are in stock and can therefore be delivered at short notice (subject to prior sale).
This flexible system means that the same lifting beam can always be used, regardless of whether you have to load a 20′, 40′ or 40′ HC container.
In addition to this container beam, there are other types that can be considered depending on customer needs:
- Lifting beam for rotating containers
- Lifting beams with center of gravity adjustment
- Lifting beams for quick-build containers
We have taken a close look at the container beam and summarized the advantages for you:
Container beam with upper, single eye for shackle and master link
- Minimal height loss
- Unchangeable design dimensions
We would be happy to provide you with a complete offer for container beams. Just ask us about suitable shackles and slings!
Alternatively, containers can also be moved with modular spreader beams, configured as a 1-over-2 lifting solution, or with a suitable spreader frame. Or use a practical, immediately usable multi lug beam.
These alternatives are ideal if you need to react flexibly to a wide variety of lifting requirements from your customers and can draw from a inventory of components. Thanks to the modular system, you can use existing struts over and over again.
