Modular Spreader Beams from Modulift
Modulift, the lifting equipment specialist based in Poole, Dorset, UK has seen a large increase in the number of projects take place in the Modular buildings market over the last few months involving their products from the Modulift Spreader Beam range.
The Modular building market has been steadily increasing over the last 10 years with a number of companies offering modular solutions both here in the UK as well as internationally to combat financial pressures, time constraints and meet environmental targets around sustainablity. As a result Modulift has seen an increase in the need for their products from the smallest in their range, the MOD 6, right up to the MOD 250 for transporting and installing Modular Buildings.
One of Modulift’s returning customers, who manages projects and lifts in this sector using the complete Modular Spreader Beam range, most recently completed a project that was for a new Modular hotel. The project, which was for the installation of Modular hotel rooms separated by an integral central corridor, weighed 18.5 tonnes and used both MOD 24’S and a MOD 50 for a one over two solution to complete the installation.
Operations Director for the leading Modular Solution company said, “The MOD 24 and MOD 50 Spreader Beams are perfect for these types of operations due to the flexibility in the weights and spans they are able to lift. They’re not the largest beams within the Modular Spreader Beam range but they get the job done.”
John Baker, Commercial Director for Modulift said, “We’re seeing a lot of companies enquire with us about our Spreader Beam range specifically to use in the Modular building market. As Modulift keep a large stocked warehouse of our off-the-shelf products, we can deliver to our customers within one working day. Obviously, we appreciate that not everything can be done with the “one size fits all solution” and if customers require custom built lifting frames for their project, Modulift can design, manufacture and deliver all within a 4 week time frame.”
All products within the Modulift Spreader Beam range are compliant with DNV standards.
