When lifting large steel shapes, such as off-center loads, round, rectangular or long items (I-beams), one lift magnet may not be enough. IMI’s Spreader Beams allow two or more magnets to be used at one time with only one lifting source. Magnets on a Spreader Beam keep your product level, reducing the height required to lift the load, providing a safer lift environment while reducing the time needed to move the load.

Note: Never stand under load being lifted. Always use extra caution. Only use magnetic lifts on material that does not flex or bend. The surface of the lift, and the load being lifted, need to be clean and free of chips, oil, slag, dirt, etc. Not recommended for painted or finish coated surfaces.
