Caldwell And Renfroe Are Changing The Lifting And Rigging Industry Through The Development Of Innovative, Lightweight Product Lines

12th September 2016

Jacksonville, Fla.; Aug. 2016 – The Caldwell Group and its Renfroe division are addressing the needs of the lifting and rigging industry by developing innovative lightweight product lines that include composite beams and smaller, lifting clamps.

Caldwell has created an industry game-changer with its line of patented Dura-Lite ™ lifting and spreader beams. With lifting capacities from ¼ to 3 tons, the beams themselves range in weight from 7.25 to 10.88 kilograms. The composite beams are non-corrosive, spark resistant and non-conductive, which allows them to be utilized in a wide range of applications.

Lifting Beams

Also in the lightweight category are the L Clamp series of vertical and horizontal lifting clamps, developed by Caldwell’s Renfroe division. The L and LP models are capable of turning a single plate from vertical to horizontal and back through a 90 degree arc. The LA and LPA models have an additional locking feature, allowing for turning a plate 180 degrees or from flat to vertical to flat again through a 180 degree arc.

The L series features clamps that are smaller in size for more manoeuvrability, easier to handle and easier to repair.
