Single girder cranes are the most commonly used within the UK material handling industry. They offer a number of advantages over double beam cranes, or pillar jib cranes.
Most importantly they are more economically priced than double girder cranes, and if the factory roof is pitched the ends of the crane beam can be chamfered to gain extra hook height. Our crane designers and 3D modelers can plot the angle of the ends of the crane beam, to match the pitch of your factory roof, to gain you extra hook height.
Single girder, or monorail cranes.
We commonly manufacture single girder cranes up to 10 or 12.5t safe working load. Occasionally a little larger but over 10 tonnes or for much wider span cranes double girder cranes are preferred as they may help stability when lifting loads on the crane hook.
