This style of spreader bar excels at heavier lifts. It has a pivoting end lug which rotates in order to reduce the bending moment put into the spreader bar effectively improving the life of the unit. The rollers available on heavier models also make it easy for one person to extend or collapse the bar. This bar commonly has high tensile pins and end lugs in order to keep the bulk of the equipment down.Spreader Bar with Pivoting End Lug

This class of spreader bar or spreader beam encompasses a fixed length bar with multiple hook points. The low profile design of these spreader bars make them excellent for indoor use where hook height is severely limited. They are also commonly used in tandem crane lifts where the spreader bar is used to facility two cranes lifting one object. Their comparatively small span makes it possible for these beams to have a high capacity and their simplicity keeps the cost low. Sparta Engineering offers several zero weld options which eliminate the need for annual weld inspection. A cost savings of more than $5000 over the life of the bar. Fixed Length Spreader Bar
