SEMI PORTAL CRANES

Portal cranes are the heavy lifters in the hoist world, along with tower cranes. They usually lift upwards of 80 to 100 metric tonnes in the form of shipping containers or other heavy-weight loads.

However, their semi-portal counterpart is mainly single girder and double girder cranes which are meant for smaller operations. These cranes adhere to high standards of quality, in terms of technology and design – meeting all international criteria. 

WHEN SELECTING AN ELECTRIC HOISTS CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING:

  1. Semi-portal cranes can make a palpable contribution to reducing costs and helping your operations achieve their optimum use-cases, in particular, usage related to space constraints.
  2. The lifting solutions are best for lightweight buildings where no additional loads are permitted because even during operation, semi-portal cranes only transfer negligible weight and additional forces to the existing building structure.
  3. Portal cranes can be installed as workplace or loading cranes directly under bridge cranes. This is an integrated solution that offers operational flexibility and increases productivity per square meter.

OUR HEAVY-DUTY LIFTING SOLUTION FOR BOTH INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR OPERATIONS:

Sometimes operations require a more powerful system for loads around 50 metric tonnes and where track gauges of up to 35 meters are needed. In these cases, the Demag double girder semi-portal crane with a travelling rope hoist is recommended. The lifting solution can be used for interior or exterior operations.

RGM UNIQUE SEMI-PORTAL CRANE SOLUTIONS

Semi-portal cranes have one wheelset on the floor or ground-based rail, and the other wheelset on an elevated gantry rail. The selection of this type of crane is often due to a very specific application or most commonly when building limitations dictate as such. RGM Cranes designs all overhead cranes in-house with strict adherence to local and international standards, all drawings are conceptualized before being sent for client approval. These processes are documented in our ISO 9001-2008 accreditation which we have proudly held for many years.
