Selection of crane hooks according to DIN 15401 and DIN 15402

Beams structure: crane and load side design


Bar-shaped beams are used for even loads (bar steel, girders etc.). If the loads are bulky (machines, crates, etc.), then a spatial beam is selected, which could be among other things, a H-frame or a frame beam.

Suspension on the crane side

The crane-side suspension is oriented mainly based on the type of the existing crane hook. There are many suitable variants, whether for simple hooks or double hooks. Bolt and eye suspensions are adapted to the respective crane hook size. The Vario suspension with high-strength suspension ring is simple and can also be retrofitted for almost any crane hook. Sometimes you do not know what the lifting conditions are yet. Welding points, shackles or double bollards allow for the subsequent and simple assembly of existing suspension. Adaptation to an existing crane hook height and type is thus not a problem.

Lifting points on the load side

The load-side hoisting points are selected according to the type and number of the hoisting devices. Shackles or bolts are used for the direct connection to the load. Simple hooks or rotating hooks are used when using suspension gear with a central suspension head. If lifting straps or wire cables with end loops are used, then welding hooks are the optimal solution. For large round slings or wire cable grummets, we recommend double bollards with a large contact radius. If the size of the load changes, then adjustable hoisting points should be used. An appropriate positioning also makes it possible to adapt to an off-centre load point. Please pay attention to the uneven load distribution here. The self-adjusting version automatically adjusts itself to the respective distance. This solution saves time and is particularly safe. Selection of crane hooks according to DIN 15401 and DIN 15402.
