Timars Offset Frame is an attachment to a container spreader for handling 20ft container "offset" from the container spreaders lifting lugs. The Offset frame is fully automatic and can be used with any kind of automatic spreader and spreader brand (ISO). The Offset frame is attached to the container spreader like a regular 20ft container in four top corner castings. There are no secondary fixing between the spreader and the offset frame which means that the crane operator can easilly attach and detach the offset frame without any manaul assistance. The twistlocks on the Offset frame locks and unlocks automaticly (no manual operation).
The offset is 1500 mm from the spreader which means that the crane operator can pick 20ft containers close to the bridge on vessels where this normally can be a problem with a regular container spreader due to the wires.
