Indoor-Outdoor Cranes

Indoor-Outdoor Cranes

The Indoor-Outdoor crane is designed to seamlessly transition between indoor and outdoor spaces by traversing a gap. This gap is wide enough to accommodate a standard roll-up door, allowing the crane to move effortlessly between the two environments.

As a result, there is no need for trucks to enter your building. The crane can venture outside, lift the load, and return indoors, effectively keeping snow and dirt outside where they belong. This innovative crane solution has been successfully utilized at our sister company, Givens Engineering, based in London, Ontario, for several years. Watch here

Two Tractor Drives that assist in moving the carriage on the rail

Air Tractor-Driven Bridge System

The bridge, which is the moving rail, is propelled along the runways by air tractor drives, as depicted. These air tractors can operate using either air or electric power and are controlled from the same pendant as the hoist.

The capacities of the system can vary, ranging from 100kg to 2,000kg. This wide range of capacities allows for versatility in handling different loads according to specific requirements.

Optimizing Space: Tandem Bridge Setup

In these photos, the system utilizes two bridges working in tandem, placed at opposite ends of long bundles of beams or tubes.

To optimize floor space utilization, it is recommended to keep truck loading activities outside the main facility. By doing so, valuable floor space can be preserved for other operations.
