The CY range of plate clamps have a hinged hook ring that can be used for the safe handling of plate at various angles, allowing plates to be lifted from the horizontal and put down in the vertical. The hinged hook ring ensures adequate gripping pressure in every position, subject to capacity reduction factors (see diagram)
NB: The plate surface of the material must have a hardness level below HRC 30/Brinell 300.
Used in pairs the CH & HH ranges of horizontal lifting clamps are designed for the transportation of plate bundles as well as single plates with a minimum thickness of 5mm.
Combined with a two legged chain sling these clamps are suitable for handling small plates, for larger plates it is recommended to use two pairs of clamps in conjunction with a spreader beam. These units have smooth jaws as standard, but are also available with the option of serrated teeth for special applications.
Designed to lift single rails securely and safely, the CR rail clamp is designed to fit most types of rail sections currently in use. The clamp has a narrow profile to enable attachment to an individual rail that is stacked side by side with other rails.
Note: Can be supplied with a short drop chain as an optional extra.
