PHD gantry cranes are available in both single and double girder format and full gantry or semi gantry. This design is ideal for outdoor applications where lifting facilities are provided without the cost of a building or any supporting steelwork. They are also suited to indoor applications where existing building structures are not suitable for supporting overhead cranes and where additional supporting steelwork would result in a loss of floor area.
Gantry cranes can be constructed with a cantilever to allow handling outside the rail centers. Typical applications for this type of crane include steel stock yards, loading areas, the concrete industry and ship building.
