Product description MK-2 Container Lifting Lugs (Set 4 pcs.)

The MK-2 Container Lifting Lugs (Set 4 pcs.) are suitable for vertical lifting of containers fitted with ISO Corner Castings. The set consists of 4 container hooks and are easily placed on the top of the container. This means  the hooks do not protrude on the side. For example, containers can be placed close together or placed in a ship. At an angle of 0 ° to 15 °, the lifting lugs have a strength of 56 T.

Consisting of 4 container hooks with an eye diameter of 45 mm

A complete set of MK-2 Container Lifting Lugs (Set 4 pcs.) consists of 4 eyes that are placed in the 4 top Corner Castings of the container. This distributes the weight evenly over the container hooks. The eyes of the lifting lugs have a diameter of 45mm, so that other lifting equipment can be easily attached.

Lifting Capacity of 56 T at an angle of 0° to 15°

A set 4 of lifting lugs have a total breaking strength of 56 Tons. This breaking strength is achieved by a safe workload (W.L.L.) of 14 tonnes per container lifting lug. Thus, even fully loaded 20ft and 40ft containers with the maximum permitted weight of 30 Tonnes can be safely lifted. The breaking strength is achieved at an angle of 0° to 15° between the container lifting lug and the lifting chain. At higher angles, the lifting lugs are loaded at a different location, reducing the breaking strength.

Suitable for vertical lifting of containers and structures

The container hooks are suitable for vertical lifting of containers. As the lifting lugs are placed at the top of the containers, no hooks or other parts protrude from the sides of the container. This allows containers to be placed close together. Containers can also be easily positioned or lifted in tight spaces. Once positioned, dismantling the container hooks from the top is very easy.

Easy positioning from the top of ISO Corner Castings

Every container is fitted with corner castings. This is the English term for the corner castings of a sea container. It allows containers to be secured both horizontally and vertically. The dimensions of the container and of the corner castings are ISO standardised. The advantage of these standard dimensions is the application of all kinds of attachments. For stacking containers, for instance, Intermediate Twistlocks can be used.

For lifting containers, the MK-2 Lifting Lugs have been developed. Only this type is suitable for lifting containers. With other Lashing Equipment, such as Twistlocks, lifting of containers is not advised.

The MK-2 Container Lifting Lugs are designed to be placed at the top of the Corner Casting. This makes attaching and detaching the lifting lugs very easy. Even when containers are placed tightly side by side. The Lifting Lugs have been specially developed to be placed in the corner casting of the container. This is because both the Lifting Lugs and the Corner Castings are manufactured according to the standard ISO norm.

Fitted with a lock to prevent slipping off

Each lifting lug is fitted with an interlock. This lock ensures that the lifting lugs cannot come loose when lifting the container. Locking takes place by means of a turning movement. To remove the lifting lugs, the locking is easy to open by hand. Removal is easy by turning the container hooks.
