Caldwell Dura-Lite Composite Spreader Beams are made from materials that are bonded together to form ultra-strong lifters.

These lightweight products are non-conductive, corrosion resistant and are easy to handle and transport.

The stability of a spreader beam versus a lifting beam is a result of taller headroom (due to top rigging) and a lower center of gravity from the crane hook attachment to the point of the assembly (lifter and load), whereas a lifting beam has a single lifting point.

They are engineered to withstand the demands of rugged environments and comply with ASME B30.20 design category B, service class 4.

Standard capacities range from 1/4 ton to 3 tons.

The spreader beam is to be used with top rigging and is designed for a compressive load. Browse our range of rigging gear here.

Caldwell Dura-Lite™ equipment offers many advantages to a wide variety of applications and industries

  • Composite material is not detected by radar, ideal for military applications.
  • Lightweight composite beams do not reduce crane capacity as much as the steel equivalent.
  • Beams 8' and under can be shipped via small package service saving time and money.
  • Non-conductive materials are ideal for use in the utility industry.
  • Marine applications and other harsh environments are no match for the non-corrosive properties of our composite beams.
  • Dura-Lite™ beams are the lightweight, ergonomic solution needed to help reduce work related injuries.
  • Service class 4 means that these lifters are designed for 2 million load cycles - that's over 30 years at 200 lifts per day
