Suspension Points

Beam Trolleys & Beam Clamps make ideal suspension points for manual and electric chain hoists. Matching the capacity of the hoist to the trolley is advized whilst ensuring the clamp or trolley fits your beam perfectly by checking the beam flange widths available for each item. Most models are in stock and ship immediately.*

Suspension Points come in various different designs and capacities depending upon their application and intended functionality from static to traversing, indoor or outdoor- we offer a solution for all chain hoist suspensions.

Beam Clamps provide a static girder suspension clamping point for both electric and manual chain hoists needing to lift and lower vertically with no horizontal traverse, often used in shafts and construction projects or applications where horizontal movement is hazardous or simply unnecessary.

Manual Trolleys offer a great I-beam/girder suspension point with the addition of four wheels to enable manual travel. Available in a variety of designs such as a quick install 'screw' type, corrosion resistant and even a parking brake for applications where the hoist must be kept still such as on a vessel. Manual trolleys can be 'push' type where the operator simply pushes the load to move the hoist along the beam or 'geared' type that incorporates a hand chain and gearing to allow the operator to pull the hand chain and operator the traverse in the same way one operates a manual hoist.

Electric Travel Trolleys employ the same characteristics that their manual counterparts do but with the addition of an electric motor, often used for heavier loads and applications where a long traverse by hand can be tiring and counter-productive for the operator.

What is a Beam Trolley or 'Trolley Beam'?

A Beam Trolley is a suspension device which connects to an I-Beam to suspend a manual or electric hoist, the trolley enables horizontal travel of the hoist along the beam. This low-cost, easy-to-install device makes a huge difference in applications where the load needs to be transported away from the vertical lift point. An I-Beam Trolley is a key component in most overhead crane systems.

What size I-Beam do I need for a Beam Trolley?

Often the beam is already in place and you need to choose a trolley that will fit and there for you don't have the luxury of choosing what beam you need. To determine if the trolley you are considering will fit you need to consider the beam flange width (this is a variable measurement since trolleys typically are very adjustable to suit a variety of beams) and the beam flange thickness. The capacity of a trolley should always match the hoist being used from it and the beam should be rated to the same.
