Important information about the subject of „skewing under load“


The load centre is always exactly under the crane hook. With an eccentric load centre, the beam is inclined. An adjustable suspension should be selected here. The spindle-adjustable version can be adjusted under load (consider max. slope angle). This solution saves time and is particularly safe. The available free lifting height should be largely utilised. The further the distance between the crane hook and the load centre is, the smaller the inclination of the beam is with a the eccentric load centre. Select round sling or chain suspension here. According to EN 13155, an inclination under a load of a max. 6° is permissible.


Rule of thumb:

Use the crane height: If the distance between the „crane hook and the centre of mass“ is doubled, the incline angle is halved.
