Cranes Direct are in a position to offer you special application cranes for those bespoke lifting operations where a standard crane will not quite do the job.

Special Application Cranes We can Supply

We can supply heavy duty cranes and high capacity cranes with lifting capacities exceeding 100tonne;

The goliath range of portal type cranes and semi-portal type cranes come in a range of lifting capacities . Single girders from 1tonne up to 25tonne and double girder constructions up to 200tonne.

Portal cranes are best suited for outdoor lifting operations or for indoors where structures already in place are not capable of the loads needed. These type of portal and semi-portal cranes can be made with cantilevered or extended beams.

Jib cranes that travel along a wall are another type of special application crane that we can supply, they are a fixed arm/boom jib crane fixed to a steel framework along the building structure, the jibs can travel down the full length providing good coverage, it is possible to have multiple jibs on one track and they can be used under other overhead cranes, providing maximum versatility.

Special application cranes are made to measure and may take longer than a standard crane to produce though we always aim for the shortest possible timescale from site visit to design and quotation to installation which will be at a time to suit you.
