Plate Lifting Clamps

Instructions for use


Plate lifting clamps should be inspected before use to ensure that: all markings are legible; plate lifting clamps are free from nicks, gouges and cracks; a clamp with the correct Working Load Limit has been selected with respect to the load to be lifted; always make sure that the clamp is supporting the load correctly; the WLL should be applied in a straight pull and overloads are not permitted; clamps may not be heat treated as this may affect their Working Load Limit; never repair or reshape a clamp by welding, heating or bending as this may affect the Working Load Limit.

It is required that the products are regularly inspected and that the inspection should take place in accordance with the safety standards given in the country of use. This is required because the products in use may be affected by wear, misuse, overloading etc. with a consequence of deformation and alteration of the material structure. Inspection should take place at least every six months and even more frequently when the clamps are used in severe operating conditions.

Plate Lifting Clamps

Applications
Plate lifting clamps are used for lifting and transportation of all kinds of steel plates and beams.

Range
Van Beest offers a wide range of lifting clamps for horizontal and/or vertical lifting of steel plates and beams ranging from Working Load Limit 750 kg up to 20.000 kg. The steel plates may have a thickness up to 150 mm. Upon request other types of clamps can be manufactured.

Design
Four different designs have been developed: type type type type E for lifting and vertical transportation of steel plates; EH for horizontal transportation of steel plates; EU a universal type for transportation in all directions; ESV for transportation of steel beams.

Type E, EH and EU are also available as ES, EHS and EUS versions, which means that these versions have an increased opening. All types of lifting clamps carry the following markings: Working Load Limit; manufacturers identification symbol (VBS); traceability code; jaw opening; CE; serialnumber.

Finish
The plate lifting clamps are made of carbon and alloy steel and are painted green to be recognized as a Green Pin product.

Certification
All plate lifting clamps are supplied with a serial number and a manufacturers certificate. Test certificates can be supplied upon request.
