Top Running

Top running cranes run on top of a fixed track, typically crane rail, placed on top of runway beams. The support structure for the runway beams can be floor supported or incorporated into the building support structure during new building design or the expansion of existing buildings. The advantage to incorporating the crane load into the building design structure is that additional footings will not be required if a crane is installed at a later date. Top running cranes can be single girder or double girder, structural steel or box girders depending on the span and capacity required. Top running double girder cranes offer more hook height since the hoist trolley runs on top of the bridge beams.



Underrunning or underhung cranes typically run on the lower flange of the runway beams. Underrunning cranes can be floor supported or ceiling hung. For floor supported cranes, footings might be required depending on crane capacity and span. A major advantage to underrunning cranes is that they can be supported by ceiling structures if crane loads are considered during new building design or the expansion of existing buildings. In some cases, existing ceiling structures can be properly reinforced to allow for the installation of underrunning cranes. 



Workstation Cranes are lighter capacity, pre-designed crane systems that can be mounted from the ceiling or free-standing.  They can be built up to 2 ton capacity and the trolleys operate on an enclosed track system.
