Options- Cranes and Platforms

Cranes have several different impacts on the cost:

  • The crane itself

  • The crane rails

  • The hangar has to be higher (so there is more structure, more wind-loading and bracing and foundation loads are bigger)

  • The hangar is costlier to heat

 

Be sure you really need these expensive toys. Cranes will normally be suspended, sometimes with several end carriages. They can cover the whole area; or they can cover just the area of the wings. Special small span cranes can be constructed over the nose area. High level cranes of small span can sometimes be built into the roof steelwork above the rudder, or above the jacking slot for the rudder. We usually supply the crane with the building if specified, however if you want to buy the cranes elsewhere please tell us all dimensions and loadings. The price of the structure may increase if lower quality cranes are used.

Telescopic platforms may also be built in.

 

1. Fixed Hoist

Fixed Hoists can be located anywhere in the span. Please specify load and location. Ideal for a static lifting situation.

2. Monorails

Monorails can be located anywhere in the span. Please specify load and location.

3. Single Girder Overhead

Single girder overhead crane for maximum loads of up to 10 tonnes (approx) and spans of up to 25 metres (approx).

4. Single Girder Underslung

Single girder underslung crane for maximum loads of up to 7 tonnes (approx) and spans of up to 25 metres (approx) or in multispans up to 100m wide.

5. Double Girder Overhead

Double girder overhead crane for maximum loads of up to 50 tonnes (approx) and spans of up to 30 metres (approx) or in multispans up to 200m wide.
