Modular Outrigger Beams & Suspension / Modular Outrigger Beams

WINSAFE's Modular Outrigger Beam system might just be the best investment you can make.

  • Do all the jobs: A basic Modular Outrigger Beam can provide reaches of up to 5'; Cable Truss systems can offer up to 14'. Overhangs can also be accomodated using this fully engineered and tested sytem.
  • Simplify your field work:  Light 8' lengths are easy to carry and pin together at site.
  • Increase your safety: The tubular beam cross-section is more resistant to lateral deflection and twist than comparable "I" sections.
  • Great value:  Modular outrigger beams cost about the same as making your own out of aluminum I-beams.

Simplicity – The standard internal splice joins the sections together quickly and easily using tethered connector pins – no splice plates, no nuts and bolts, no wrenches, and no lost parts. Each front, back and mid beam section weighs only 32 lbs. Easy to carry, and easy to handle in corridors and elevators.

Suspension Point – The suspension cables are hooked to a drop forged link. This has two advantages – the link moves out of the way for easy handling when transporting or storing the beams, and it is very strong. The link has a working strength of 4,200 lbs and an ultimate strength of 25,200 lbs.

Counterweights – Both flame cut "longhorn" and cast "saddle" style weights can be used with this system. Various length longhorn bars are available that pass through a matching hole in the rear of a longhorn style rear beam. The machined slot on the rear of a saddle style rear beam will accept up to 7 weights, with a holder available that sits in the slot and runs perpendicular to the beam, accommodating an additional 12 more.

If your weight system doesn't fall into these two categories, we will build a weight holder system for you.

We can also help you configure a beam system to best suit your application.
