Single and double crane designs

Where single girder cranes operate on one bridge beam with a hoist connected to the lower flange, double girder cranes span over two bridge beams and their hoists travel via rail over the top of these beams. Both types of overhead cranes are capable of lifting heavy loads, though the double girder crane has a higher load capacity.

Underslung crane design

Underslung cranes run on tracks which form the building roof structure. They are generally used in larger span buildings or in applications where a clear floor space is critical.


This is because they have smaller dimensions than the other designs, although they also have a smaller load, so it’s a trade-off that ought to be considered carefully.

Heavy duty crane design

The Goliath and Semi Goliath cranes are large, rail-mounted, floor-travelling units. With a sturdy design, these heavy-duty cranes can lift large loads over long distances.


These heavy duty cranes are commonly used in large shipping container bays and by rail lines, where extremely large loads need to be transported over a particular, but linear, distance.

Dockside cranes

Dockside cranes are versatile pieces of heavy duty machinery that are capable of taking on specialised tasks, including loading and unloading goods. Although similar to heavy duty cranes in many ways, typically dockside cranes remain fixed to the ground.


Ideal for quickly and efficiently loading and unloading goods from docked ships, dockside cranes are typically seen lined up in a row. This is because, to their benefit, they are specially designed to be operated without taking up too much space.
