Clear Creek routinely designs buildings with multiple overhead cranes, and our design team can match any of your tonnage needs. The installation of cranes is not always cost-effective, but in many cases the cost of a bridge crane can be justified by avoiding high-price rentals of mobile cranes in a facility that uses a lot of heavy process equipment.
An overhead crane, commonly called a bridge crane, is a type of crane found in industrial environments. It is a complex structural system consisting of parallel runways with a traveling bridge spanning the gap, stops, bumpers, trolley and hoist. The hoist, the lifting component of a crane, travels along the bridge. Cranes are essential to the proper maintenance of heavy equipment. Smaller workstation cranes, such as jib cranes, handle lighter loads in a work area.
Depending on your needs, there are several crane options:
- Top Runner Bridge Cranes
- Overhead Traveling Bridge Cranes
- Underhung Bridge Cranes
- Manual Chain Hoist
- Electrically Driven (Standard & SEC Classified Hazardous Location)
- Pneumatically Driven
