Choosing Between Gantries and Jib Boom Cranes
Many industries rely on heavy equipment such as Gantries and Jib Boom Cranes to transport loads, both vertically and across the floor. Warehouse operators use them to lift pallets from ground level to other floors or mezzanines. Manufacturing facilities often contain Gantries to transport bulky materials into production lines. Construction crews use them to move building materials to upper floors. Gantries and Jib Boom Cranes are staples of all material-handling applications.
But Gantry Cranes and Jib Booms provide different sets of advantages. Essentially, Gantry Cranes are the best choice if your operation has the following requirements:
- Horizontal movement of materials, up to 20 feet at a time.
- Vertical lift distance of up to 10 feet—or more, with custom options.
- Load capacities up to 6,000 pounds.
- Option to move the Crane system via heavy-duty phenolic casters.
- Ergonomic improvements for staff.
BHS Gantry Cranes are modular A-frame units that can be expanded as your needs grow. They come in a variety of powered and non-powered options, with different height and length specifications to fit anywhere. Custom designs are also available.
Jib Booms, on the other hand, are all-steel lifting cranes with secure fork pockets for ease of transportation. They are available in powered and manual models, and each is ideal for material handling tasks such as:
- Loading and unloading freight.
- Handling loads of up to 6,000 pounds for some manual models.
- Lifting up to 3,000 pounds for powered models.
- Suspending machinery or heavy parts for assembly.
- Transporting components from one elevation to another.
- Carrying lifting equipment via forklift.
All BHS Gantries and Jib Booms are made of pure welded steel, with a powder-coat finish that protects them from rust, impacts, and the chemicals sometimes associated with manufacturing and material handling facilities. They offer great dependability and long working lives to provide a quick return on investment.
By preventing the manual lifting of heavy loads, Gantries and Jib Booms protect staff from the risk of musculoskeletal disorders. They also boost productivity by eliminating a key material handling challenge.
