Updated ASME BTH-1-2017 Design of Below-the-Hook Lifting Devices Available Now
The much anticipated ASME BTH-1-2017 Design of Below-the-Hook Lifting Devices standard has been revised. The revision supersedes the 2014 version of the standard, serving as a guide for designers, manufacturers, purchasers, and users of below-the-hook lifting devices.
BTH-1 addresses only design requirements, and is intended to be used in conjunction with ASME B30.20 Below-the-Hook Lifting Devices, which addresses safety requirements. The BTH-1 provides minimum design criteria requirements.
