Modulift Spreader Frame facilitates complex lift in London

Modulift Spreader Frame helps facilitate a lift in Brunswick, London, with the help of a Palfinger lorry loader.

Bedford, UK-based haulage company D&G Noble has deployed a Modulift CMOD 12 Spreader Frame to help lift a cylindrical sign into place in London.

The aluminium sign, which measured 3.5m x 2.5m and weighed approximately 1000kg, was successfully lifted into position outside the Brunswick Shopping Centre. Driving the lift was Palfinger’s PK 53002 SH F lorry loader, facilitated by Modulift’s spreader frame which attached four leg chain slings from the machine to the frame, and four round slings from the frame to the sign.Modulift Spreader Frame helps facilitate a lift in Brunswick, London, with the help of a Palfinger lorry loader.

Modulift’s CMOD 12 Spreader Frame was chosen for the lift due to the designer’s (LC Signs) desire to not have the cylindrical work split apart and put back together after the lift, due to concerns about the installation piecing back together. According to D&G Noble’s Phill Holmes, the “CMOD 12 was an instant answer to the problem”.

“It ensured we could undertake the lift safely without causing any damage,” he said. “We visited LC Signs to gain an understanding of what was required. As a result, a frame was designed and made which was fitted to the sign.”

Modulift’s CMOD Spreader Frames are a popular choice in the lifting and rigging industry thanks to their lighter design and reduced height when hoisting a rig. Featuring more lifting points, the CMOD spreader provides more support for stress points during larger and heavier lifts.

The frames range from the CMOD 6 through to the CMOD 250, with the lifting systems capable of lifting up to 300 tonnes in some instances, with Managing Director of Modulift Sarah Spivey highlighting the recent lift completed at Brunswick as emblematic of the product’s popularity.Modulift Spreader Frame helps facilitate a lift in Brunswick, London, with the help of a Palfinger lorry loader.

“The use of a Modulift CMOD 12 Spreader Frame was a crucial factor in the project’s success,” she said. “The CMOD is designed to expand the capabilities of our modular spreader beam system and is an extremely popular choice for challenging lifts such as these.”

Established in 2002, Modulift specialises in lifting and rigging equipment and supplies a comprehensive range of lifting and spreader beams as well as other custom ‘below-the-hook’ equipment across a diverse range of industries.
