Overhead Cranes



The costs involved in adding a crane system to a Pre-engineered steel building consists of:

1. Strengthening the building’s main frames to support the crane loads.

2. Supplying the crane brackets and crane runway beams that support the crane system.

3. Supplying and installing crane rails.

4. Supplying, installing and commissioning the crane system.

ELMASRY Steel’s supply is normally limited to items 1and 2. Supply, installation and commissioning of the crane system and crane rails are handled by specialist “crane systems” companies. The most common types of crane systems in pre-engineered steel buildings are:

• Top Running Cranes

• Under hung Cranes

• Monorail Cranes

• JIB Cranes

• Gantry Cranes

• Semi-Gantry Cranes
