Overhead Travelling Cranes


Single girder cranes are designed to cover a range of industrial demands, they provide excellent value for money with no compromise on performance.

There are Models from 500kg to 20 tonnes, each has its own use according to Design and Specification.

The most popular and widely used model is the Single Girder, this type of Crane can be designed and installed in a Low Headroom environment as well as spanning large distances over 20 metres.

The Single Girder Crane can be Under or Over Slung depending on application and environment.

Electric motor driven carriages move hoists with accuracy when lifting heavy materials, the manufacturing industry widely use Single Girder Models but there cost effectiveness makes them ideal for any lifting application.

Underslung Cranes are an ideal solution when the supporting steelwork beneath the crane is not available to use.
