The Timars OH - frame is a semi-automatic overheight spreader which has been developed in order to assist operators with the safest and most efficient handling of oversized cargo such as flats, bolsters and open top containers.
The locking of the twistlocks of the Timars OH - frame follows the twistlock operation of the parent spreader, therefore no external power supply or hydraulics is required during spreader attachment or operation. The fully mechanical operation leads to less down-time.The OH - frame is manually attached under any parent spreader with ISO standard base measurements (usually with only minor modifications). The OH - frame then acts as "extended legs" to the parent spreader. This provides a much improved, safer and faster method of handling cargo when compared to using chain slings etc.
Overheight frame semiautomatic
The Timars OH - frame is fitted with 2 x securing handles for attachment to the parent spreader.
Attaching (before use) and removing (after use) is completed manually by turning the securing handles through 90 degree. Turning of these handles operates a linked security device that keeps the OH-frame attached to the parent spreader, independent of the twistlock positions of the parent spreader,
