PRO-DF Steel Sheet Horizontal Lifting Clamp
Horizontal lifting clamp used for lifting and handling of steel sheets; if the length of the board is far too long, it is recommended that the lifting system also contains a beam. This model also allows the load to be twisted, thanks to the side handle.
Manufacturing standard for horizontal lifting clamp is EN 13155.
In choosing the right clamps, in addition to the maximum working load, take in consideration its jaw opening - it will influence the minimum and maximum thickness of the plate that can be caught and lifted.
This horizontal model can be used only for horizontal lifting and handling.
Adjust the maximum load of the pair of clamps with the angle formed at the top of the chain system that is based, as terminations, with horizontal lifting clamps!
If this angle exceeds 60°, you are in red zone and the use of clamps is prohibited under these conditions.
At the same time, it should be considered that each clamp is perpendicular to the horizontal plane of the plate, the maximum lateral deviation allowed being a maximum of 15°!
For an extra working top angle, up to 90°, see PRO-DN model!
PROlift® lifting clamps are provided with serial number and an identification plate according to the standard.
It is strictly forbidden to exceed the maximum load WLL!
The maximum working load for PRO-DF horizontal plate clamps is valid for a pair of two clamps, as at least two clamps (one pair) must be used for lifting!
Safety factor for PRO-DF horizontal lifting clamps is 4 and they are proof load tested at 2 x WLL.
