Popular Accessories for Mobile Gantries
Mobile gantry accessories are paramount to lifting operations as with the majority of cranes that you will find, the actual crane structure itself simply provides the sturdy and robust foundations to complete lifting and lowering tasks, supporting the weight of whatever load is being worked with. They do not, however, conduct the actual lifting tasks themselves, and are instead utilised with common forms of lifting equipment. Mobile gantries are no exception to this, and below we discuss some accessories that are available for mobile gantries.

Mobile Gantry Accessories
Electric hoists are one of the most commonly used mobile gantry accessories and are great for lifting and lowering heavy loads. They are fast, efficient, reliable, and operate with safe working loads of up to 10,000Kg, although bear in mind that our mobile gantries only have safe working loads of up to 5000Kg. Coming in a range of sizes and styles and with different phase and speed options, electric hoists make for a great match with mobile gantries.
Chain blocks / manual chain hoists
Chain blocks, or manual chain hoists as they are also known, offer another great solution for your hoisting needs. They can also lift and lower heavy loads with perfect accuracy and safety, and offer a more economical solution to electric hoists as they do not require an electricity supply. This does, however, mean that you will have to operate this accessory manually.
Shackles are another great accessory for mobile gantries. As with the above two accessories, they are great for connecting lifting equipment, and can be found everywhere from small workshops to large, industrial warehouses. They can be used in conjunction with other lifting accessories, such as wire rope or chain slings, and come in a range of designs, such as with bow and dee shackles. Our shackles are sturdy, robust and comply with all British and European Standards. You can read more on our range of shackles here.
