Commercial Structural Steel Beam Installation Service with the Ultimate Steel Beam Lifter

Steel beam installation presents some of the greatest challenges at a construction site. The Hooka steel I-beam lifter will change the way you look at this building task. Lightweight and compact, it makes steel beam installation easy and less stressful.

When constructing a large commercial building, installing those massive steel beams can be awkward and dangerous. Underpinning an existing building, along with basement construction and foundations, have traditionally been difficult jobs. Tight spaces and exacting beam placement are among the headaches encountered by builders.

That’s where the Hooka steel beam lifter and DBX steel beam mover come in. Unlike a hoist-and-lift crane, the Hooka combines a long arm with a stable platform. You’ll appreciate the easy and precise beam placement that the Hooka brings to the job. Moving a beam to the other side of the site is no problem with the remote-controlled carrier attachment.

Successful 11 Steel Beam Installation in Multi-Story Car Park, Gloucester

Interesting job this week for CJN Engineering installing an 11 multi-Ibeam structure in King’s Walk multi-storey car park in Gloucester. With very restricted headroom, the Hooka machine with its compact size, combined lift and carry crawler crane/tracked forklift capabilities and proven 1.3 tonne lift and carry capacity for steel beams, was the perfect tool for the job!

The Hooka – steel beam lifter – Installs huge 30+ section I-Beam, steel portal frame structure in Woodford Green for Hillard Wright

The Hooka got called in to a huge 30+ section I-Beam, steel portal frame structure in Woodford Green for Hillard Wright. The job involved erecting steel columns and then assembling the complete second storey labyrinth of heavy RSJ I-beams 2.2 metres up in the air, on top of the steel uprights. The Hooka’s capacity to lift steel RSJ’s of up to 1.2 tonnes to a height of 3.4 metres got the job done smoothly, quickly and safely!

The Hooka – steel beam lifter – Safe and easy installation of two huge 7.6 metre long, 950 Kg beams making up a steel Picture Frame

Another I-Beam access / installation challenge for the Hooka. With two huge 7.6 metre long, 950 Kg beams making up a steel Picture Frame, this job required a machine that was able to safely lift, shift and install heavy steel beams through tight spaces. The Hooka de-stacked the pre-delivered RSJ I-beams onto its trolley system and towed them into site through the narrow access under the 2.1 metre high doorway frame. Despite the restricted space in the garden, the Hooka was able to bring the large RSJ’s into site and set them in front of the opening ready for lifting into place.

The Hooka – 2 Huge I-Beams Weighing up to 1300 kg Installed for a Stress Free Weekend!

The Hooka all terrain mini tracked crane safely and easily installs steel I-beams even in the most restricted sites. The Hooka was set a ‘next level’ challenge by Cuffley Builder, Tarkan, who needed 2 huge I-Beams installed for a stress free weekend! This included manoeuvring a 1300 kg steel beam over the corner of the swimming pool, before being lifted up 500mm onto the pre-existing property’s floor.

The Hooka – 16 Steel Beam Frame Assembly Built in One Day!

The Hooka mini tracked crawler crane is the ideal steel beam lifter for quick, easy and safe steel beam installation. On this contract lift the Steel I-Beams had to be assembled in a specific order to construct the complete steel frame to make sure it was set square on its foundations. The Hooka’s ‘turn on the spot’ manoeuvrability allowed it to fit the upright steel columns and horizontal cross beams all from one central point.

Safe Installation of 300kg to 950kg Steel RSJ Beams on Site in Wokingham

K Design set the Hooka mini tracked crawler crane a 4 Steel RSJ I-Beam challenge. The steel RSJs ranged from 300kg to 950kg and had to be towed and carried 100 metres into the site through a restricted access without causing damage to the mature gardens. The Hooka’s lightweight and load spreading tracks allowed it to run on a 13mm plywood trackway to deliver the steel beams to the installation area.

Easy Installation of 450kg Steel I-Beam on Site With Restricted Access

The Hooka mini tracked crawler crane took ‘restricted access’ to the next level this week! The 450kg Steel I-Beam install had to go in through a 2.1 metre high x 1.1 metre wide access, up and down a series of ramps, and then ‘post’ the I-Beam onto it’s piers inside a ‘letterbox’ opening. This enabled the home owner to keep the rest of their house ‘intact’ until the extension is fully completed – so reducing the ‘extension build dust and chaos’ to a minimum! – Another satisfied customer of Lift, shift AND install!
