Understanding the Role of Morbar Spreader Bars in Lifting

Understanding the Role of Morbar Spreader Bars in Lifting

Spreader bars are one of the most commonly used below the hook lifting devices to help assist crane operators in lifting heavy loads and objects. It is often used to lift loads that are too difficult to move using a single point of attachment.

Most spreader bars typically have two lifting lugs going up to transfer the load to the crane and two lugs going down to connect to the object being lifted. The mechanical design of a spreader bar allows you to stabilize and support a load properly during an overhead lift. HHI has always made it a point to provide its customers with the best spreader bar solutions through our MorBar product series.

A) MorBar Spreader Bars

We have designed Holloway Houston MorBar spreader bars that conform to various industry standards set by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) such as ASME BTH-1 and ASME B30.20. So, these spreader bars are suitable for lifting very heavy and/or large loads. The horizontal bar connecting the two shackling ends is extremely durable and lightweight.

When you use only a crane to lift a load, it may become unevenly distributed as there is only one point of contact between the load and the crane. This, in turn, may cause a fatal accident during the lifting. However, a MorBar spreader bar will evenly distribute and stabilize the weight of the load, even for awkwardly shaped objects. So, your lifting tasks become much safer and easier.

They are ideal for:

  • Construction sites, industrial fabrication plants, marine and shipping industry, and petrochemical facilities.
  • One-time vertical engineered lifts.
  • Remote location lifting.

B) MorBar Rigging Rentals

What separates HHI from its competitors, however, is its rental service. Holloway Houston lifting spreader bar service is our flagship rental offering with a worldwide presence in the engineering, manufacturing, and assembly of spreader bars, wire rope slings, and associated rigging.
