Light Crane Systems

Light crane systems provide the same freedom and flexibility as an overhead travelling crane, but for much smaller operations.

Due to their lightweight, compact design, light cranes can be installed where space or structural limitations don’t allow for a standard crane installation. Overhead light crane systems also offer a much more cost-effective solution where smaller loads and compact work spaces are concerned.

  • Single or double girder light cranes
  • Free-standing or roof suspension style
  • Capacities from 125kg to 2tonne
  • Low headroom raised construction to maximise lifting height
  • Curved sections, turn tables, switches and interlocks available
  • Reconfigurable to adapt to changing circumstances

Street Cranexpress can work with you to find the optimal overhead light crane configuration for your requirements, adapting systems to suit the job in hand and the available space and working around pillars or other obstructions.

Case Study: NG Bailey

As part of a workshop refit, engineering group NG Bailey asked us for an overhead crane solution that would reduce operator fatigue and increase safety, without sacrificing precision or putting additional stress on the building. We delivered this solution in the form of a floor-mounted light crane with an LX Electric Chain Hoist.

Designed and installed by Street Cranexpress, the light crane system maximises cross- and long- travel in the workshop. The truss-reinforced bridge spans 10 metres across and moves along a similarly reinforced gantry, running the 22 metre length of the building.

The workshop is now in full service for stainless steel pipe cutting, welding and extrusion duties.
