Type ALP Adjustable Lifting Point

Standard rigging and lifting point adjusts to suit the beam width, flange thickness and orientation of the lift. Safely supports loads up to 3 metric tonnes.

View technical specification


The Type ALP is an ‘off-the-shelf’ adjustable lifting point, designed to support loads up to 3 metric tonne (29.4kN) with a +/- 18° lift angle from the supporting steelwork. 

The assembly consists of a large 'Gunnebo' screw on load ring, which can be set in two orientations to suit the lift, and a slotted location plate with Type AAF adjustable girder clamps. Suitable for parallel or tapered beams up to 10°, with a flange width range of 70 to 450 mm and a thickness range of 5 to 26 mm. These adjustable features often allow contractors to use just one type of lifting point throughout a project.
