Lifting clamp with beam

We stock a wide range of lifting clamps here at SafetyLiftinGear; however, it's important to note that not all lifting clamps play the same role.

In fact, certain clamps are simply not suitable for some jobs, while others are tailor-made with a specific function in mind.

To help you get your head around the specifics, we've compiled this short list to help you get a firm grasp of the different types of lifting clamps we offer.

Beam clamp

Beam Clamps

Incredibly robust and versatile, these hard-wearing lifting clamps are more than capable of pulling their weight...and much more! With a maximum capacity of up 10 tonnes (check the specifications of your chosen product before purchasing), our beam clamps offer a reliable lifting solution that won't buckle under the pressure.

Plate clamp

Plate Clamps

Specifically designed for use with heavy steel plates, our plate lifting clamps provide a safe and secure method of lifting heavy metal sheets.

Heavy-duty plate lifting clamps come in three different categories:

  • Vertical Plate Clamps - Equipped with hardened steel jaws, our vertical plate clamps effectively lift steel plates from a horizontal position into a vertical position. We currently offer a variety of sizes, with weight limits ranging from 0.5 tonnes up to 5 tonnes.

  • Horizontal Plate Clamps - Supplied in pairs, these twin clamps allow you to lift steel plates while maintaining a horizontal position (when used with a 2 leg chain sling). Our horizontal clamps are currently available in 1.5 tone, 3 tonne and 5 tonne models.

  • Multi-Directional Clamps - While most lifting clamps are either vertical or horizontal, we also offer multi-directional clamps that cover both options. These include two suspension holes for either vertical or horizontal suspension.

Lifting Grabs, Lugs and Hooks

Certain lifting jobs may require the use of additional equipment to modify your lifting mechanism.

Block grabs, container lugs and pipe hooks can enable you to lift unconventional heavy-duty items that are otherwise awkward to manoeuvre.


Specialist Lifting Clamps

In addition to the products listed above, there are also a wide variety of specialist clamps created with one singular purpose in mind:

Ideal for non-metal objects, such as plasterboard, stone and wood. Commonly used in the construction industry.

Specialist clamp used for lifting oil and chemical drums, as well as other drum-shaped objects.

As the name suggests, this is a specialist clamp used for kerbstones.

These clamps are specifically designed to raise, transport and lay manhole covers.

Equipped with rope and shackles for easy release, these products provide a great solution for those looking to remove steel piling from the ground.

Designed for manoeuvring metal, concrete and plastic piping into position.

Unlike the other clamps in this section, pulling clamps are intended to position heavy loads prior to industrial application.
