At Cranes Direct we stock a range of different crane related products, with Mobile Gantries being some of our most popular range. While standard mobile lifting gantries (or A-Frame gantries as they are also called) have a number of benefits, our aluminium gantry's offer a unique ease of use that many other cranes don’t. We explore this in further detail below.
The lightness of aluminium gantry's
Aluminium is widely known as an extremely lightweight metal, but still maintains a good level of strength, typically between 70 and 700 MPa. This means that aluminium gantries are extremely easy to manoeuvre and transport around a worksite, or even multiple worksites, while still being able to safely and securely lift the load at hand.
With our aluminium gantry's only weighing between 128Kg and 213Kg, and having four wheels which move at 360 degrees, attached to the four support stands, you will have no problems moving around the handy aluminium gantry crane. Despite its lighter nature, the aluminium gantry still has a safe working load of up to 2000Kg.

The compact and adjustable nature of aluminium gantry's
As well as being extremely lightweight, yet strong, aluminium gantries are also compact and adjustable in nature, further adding to their ease of use. Our aluminium gantry's come in three separate parts, all of which can be taken apart swiftly and folded up small and neatly.
These parts can be easily reassembled, and are securely fastened with straps when you need to transport the aluminium gantry around or when you need to secure it for storage.
It also has adjustable sizes, allowing you to work at a range of heights; up to 3500mm. This range of heights allows you to use the aluminium gantry crane for different tasks without the need for several pieces of equipment.
Aluminium gantry's are compatible with several accessories
Our aluminium gantries are efficient in themselves, but they are also compatible with a number of different accessories should you need to use them. With several hoisting devices, parking jacks, and winch kits available, your aluminium gantry will be suited to many different lifting tasks.
