Overhead Cranes

Overhead cranes can be used for a variety of applications, including construction, manufacturing, and shipping. They are often used to move heavy loads such as steel beams, pipes, and machinery. For businesses in our space, overhead cranes are a crucial part to the workplace – a tool, without which, many of the projects undergone in our industry, would never be successfully completed.

Overhead cranes are a type of crane used to lift and move heavy loads. At FB Cranes, we stock, install, and maintain four main types of overhead cranes: single-girder cranes, double-girder cranes, semi-portal cranes, and portal cranes.

The different types of overhead cranes we offer

If you’re in the market for an overhead crane, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, you’ll need to decide which type of overhead crane is best suited for your needs. Here’s a quick breakdown of our comprehensive suite of world-class overhead crane options.

  • Jib cranes are the most common type of overhead crane. They have a horizontal beam that is supported at one end by a wall or column. The other end of the beam has a pulley system that is used to raise and lower the load. Jib cranes are very versatile and can be used for a variety of tasks.
  • Single girder cranes are built for cost-saving, low maintenance and are often used in small spaces. They are designed using a single girder box, or an I-Beam structure. Single girder cranes are typically less expensive than double girder cranes, but they can only handle smaller loads.
  •  Double girder cranes offer a higher load capacity and a minimum deadweight. If you need lifting capacity of up to 100 tons, when transporting heavy loads, the double girder crane should be your go-to.
  • Semi portal cranes and portal cranes are the most expensive options, but they offer the best lifting capacity and stability. Portal cranes are a very economic solution in a workspace and can bring a business the benefit of speed and cost-effectiveness.

As mentioned, overhead cranes are a vital piece of equipment for many businesses. If you’re in the market for an overhead crane, contact FB Cranes now
