Thorough Planning Prior to Your Overhead Crane Installation

Before the overhead crane installation begins, A thorough risk assessment, method statement and lift plan will be provided. Overhead crane installation can be carried out using existing gantry systems (either self contained or incorporated into the buildings structure) or can be installed onto a new gantry system provided by Granada Cranes.

During the overhead crane installation, The crane is mounted on the gantry using another piece of lifting equipment. The lifting equipment chosen to do this job depends on the weight of the crane, the access into the site and the available height clearance.

Common methods of installing the crane onto the gantry include the use of:

  • Mobile Cranes
  • Genie Lifts
  • Fork Lift Trucks
  • Hiab’s

Once the overhead crane has been safely transported to site and installed onto the Gantry it will be wired in, tested and then with the help of test weights, have the overload configured and certificates issued to declare it safe for use.
