What Is A Gantry Crane?

Gantry cranes are the go-to for moving heavy loads indoors and out. They are an option to use when there are no overhand runways, or the overhead cranes are not strong enough.

A type of overhead crane, the gantry crane, is a single or double girder configuration supported on freestanding legs. You can manoeuvre Gantry cranes along with wheels or by a track or rail system.

 If the space is tight, you can also use a gantry crane with a wall-mounted ‘A-frame’ and a single leg. The HeavyLifts gantry consists of 3-parts,

  1. The Trolley – this runs along a moveable beam. This beam is how height is adjusted, moving up or down to accommodate the lift. Our gantry cranes allow for sideways movement.
  2. The girder – supporting the gantry crane 
  3. The hoist is for lifting loads, including unusually shaped loads and delicate and fragile loads.
