Aluminum Gantry Cranes for Versatility

There are many benefits to using the extremely versatile aluminum gantry crane. Here is what an aluminum gantry crane can do for you:

  • It is lightweight so one person can set it up and take it down in just minutes
  • It is corrosion resistant, which makes it great for outdoor use
  • It is the perfect choice if you have floor weight restrictions
  • Can be toted from job site to job site easily
  • No need for a fork truck or a hoist
  • Adjusts up to 12 feet from the top beam and therefore can lift a variety of bulky materials at a single job site
  • Its parts may be light weight, but it's capability is not. An adjustable aluminum gantry crane can support up to 4,000 pounds
  • A good choice if you are working in a clean room -- a room with a low level of environmental pollutants.
