Caldwell’s Dura-Lite™ Composite Lifting Beams: Innovation for Heavy Loads

In this video, we explore the revolutionary Caldwell Dura-Lite™ composite lifting beam. Discover how these lightweight beams, weighing as little as nine pounds, can lift loads as heavy as a grand piano, a baby elephant, or over 200 bricks—from a quarter ton to three tons on standard models!

We take an in-depth look at the advantages of Caldwell’s composite lifting and spreader beams over traditional metal beams. Learn about their corrosion resistance, non-conductive properties, and the rigorous testing that proves their strength and durability.

Whether you’re in construction, marine, utility, or other industries, this innovative lifting solution could transform your operations.
