Overhead Gantry Cranes

Our Overhead Gantry Cranes offer exceptional lifting capabilities for a vast range of applications.

Optimise your lifting processes with smart Overhead Gantry Cranes

At Granada Cranes, we have the technology and facilities to design and manufacture complete gantry systems. Our gantries can be free-standing, mounted to existing structures, or incorporated into new buildings. Using box girders in our fabrication process allows us to manufacture gantries economically and with greater distances between supports. All gantries are designed and installed in accordance with current British and European standards.

Our overhead gantry cranes combine world-class engineering with smart electronic controls, delivering exceptional lifting capabilities. From light work to the most demanding of processes, our cranes are suitable for a vast range of applications. We work closely with our customers to design bespoke gantry systems that meet their specific needs, no matter how challenging the project. Once complete, our team will install and commission the system for you, and carry out the 12-monthly thorough examination required by the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations.

With a reputation for innovation, engineering excellence, and exceptional service, Granada Cranes is a leader in industrial lifting solutions.
