Overhead Cranes

Overhead Cranes

Overhead cranes come in two variants, double girder overhead cranes and single girder overhead cranes.

Double girder overhead cranes
Double girder overhead cranes give a better height of lift in a given headroom as the hook travels between the beams.

They are available in higher capacities than single girder and for heavy duty applications they can be supplied with open winch hoists.

One simple advantage of the double girder overhead crane design is the possibility to fit a walkway to the crane which gives maintenance access to many critical parts of the crane and often to overhead lighting etc.

Single girder overhead cranes
Single girder overhead cranes are designed to cover a wide range of modern industrial demands, providing excellent value for money with no compromise on performance.


A single girder overhead crane has reduced wheel loads, saving costs on new support structures and increased lifting capacities on existing structures.

We offer various crane beam to end carriage constructions to ensure optimum use of headroom available.

Hoists are offered as standard in low headroom format running on the bottom flange of the beam. Hoist design ensures maximum cross bridge hook stroke with minimum side clearances.

We specialise in Overhead Cranes. Overhead Cranes, double and single girder overhead cranes.
