  Our company is a recognised specialist in the UK for our versatile hydraulic gantry lifting systems. We have a wide range of equipment and machinery available to handle your project needs. Over the years, we have established an excellent reputation for offering our clients a comprehensive and reliable service.

Hydraulic Gantry Lifting systems were first introduced to the world in the early 1960s; they were initially manufactured to aid press installation. Press installation was where high capacity crane alternatives were needed in spaces with little headroom.

Since then, Hydraulic Gantry Lifting Systems have evolved massively into a tool used worldwide in several different industries for moving and lifting items and materials on sites. For the last 30 years, hydraulic gantry lifting systems have been the predominant alternative lifting device.

  They are available in many different models, weights and capacities. Accessories, items and add-on lifting equipment such as; tracks, beams, lifting links, load rotators, side shift, are all equipment for the hydraulic gantry that you can find to elevate and meet your project needs.

Machine Moving With Air Skates

In addition to our other services, we also offer Air Skates as an alternative method to moving heavy loads. They operate on a thin film of air, and as long as the floor is in good condition, and the air supply sufficient, they provide a means of moving loads with very little effort, and in any direction.

For those occasions when floors are not so good, we have our own alternative method of helping to "float" your load...or boat !. 

Air is supplied either from existing shop mains, or we can supply a compressor and hoses, all fitted with safety "anti-whip" wires.

Air skates benefit from their shallow profile and low friction for movement, their flexibility offers a small self jacking vertical lift, low ground loadings once inflated, and cause no damage to floors.

Mobile Cranes 

Cable controlled cranes that mount atop rubber-tired carriers, crawlers, or hydraulic-powered cranes refer to mobile cranes. 

Designed to be easily transportable to a construction site, they use various cargo types with minor assembly or setups. Suspended by sheaves and wire ropes, mobile cranes tend to operate boom from the end of a hook. Wire ropes run via the prime movers of whatever the designers and engineers have available at the time. 

They work through various transmissions, such as combustion engines, steam engines, and electrical motors. It has further operational advantages as it has several add ons and items. These add ons may be; a demolition ball, a dragline or scoop, an earthmover or a clamshell bucket. These, however, can often limit the model.

Rolling System Machine Moving

Engineers came up with the Rolling system machine or transport roller's design to make life easier and quicken transportation for their heavy machinery. 

The device rolls your desired machinery, wherever you wish to take it. It can withstand heavy loads and large, dense machinery. 

We can offer fast and efficient services for our rolling system machine. Our rolling systems are the perfect choice for carried heavy loads made from durable welded steels and construction material and a rigid grip rubber surface.

Hoist FR Forklift

The projector Lifting system may also equip our clients with Hoist FR Forklifts. Our forklift includes:

  • A high performing hosepipe.
  • A two-speed automatic hydrostatic drive.

  • A wide variety of RPM control.

  • It's versatile and efficient and has safety valves, lifting the cylinder, holding it securely in place.

  • Our state of the art lifting equipment and unique design allows for carried movement in confined areas and immense stability for carrying great weights.

Hydraulic Gantry Crane Rental

  We provide only the best equipment for our clients; with the Hydraulic Gantry Lifting Systems we use can lift up to 453 tonnes and extend up to 10 meters in the air. 

They are incredibly versatile lifting systems that can be set up very quickly. Unlike traditional cranes, they don't necessarily require direct overhead access to the load. 

When utilised efficiently, a Hydraulic Gantry Lifting System can solve and handle awkward lifting projects in confined spaces and indoors where little headroom exists for conventional cranes.

What are Hydraulic gantry lift systems?

Hydraulic Gantry Lifting Systems are often more efficient for plant and machinery lifting than a conventional mobile crane. 

Not only can they be set up in enclosed areas, but they also have a large lifting capacity, and lower ground loadings. This can be advantageous for assembling and dismantling industrial plants and machinery.

Hydraulic Gantry Lifting Systems also allow for multi-point lifting, keeping the load completely level if required. Conversely, hydraulic lift systems also allow machinery or other loads to be lifted, tilted and turned. Their flexibility is a crucial advantage.

From internal domestic projects to transcontinental relocation of plant and machinery, you can rely on our professional and friendly team to treat each project with the same care and attention, regardless of the size.

The experienced team of specialist engineers will do their utmost ensure that your project runs as smoothly as possible. 

As with any project, issues can arise for various reasons, and it's the ability to innovate and solve problems when the unexpected occurs that has helped us build an excellent reputation in the industry.
