They can safely handle the lifting and lowering of loads up to 500kg but should NEVER be overloaded; guessing the weight of a load is unacceptable. Half a tonne of lifting power should be enough to make a number of handling tasks easier, although you can check out our full lifting equipment range from LGD to see the various custom configurations we can create.
We can manufacture the 500kg lifting gantry to a height to suit your needs, though the maximum under beam height allowed is 4.5 metres, so anything under this figure is easily do-able.
When it comes to the span of the 500kg lifting gantry the maximum measurement is 5 metres, this is the distance inside the two a-frame sides, so the total size will be slightly larger, allowing for the beam to sit on top of the a-frame legs.
As with all of our lifting gantries, you have a number of options in terms of how this assembly can be used. If you are looking for a fixed lifting solution, it can be bolted in place while still offering a straightforward removal process when it needs to be repositioned further down the line. If you need a mobile platform for safe lifting, you can equip it with castors. The choice is yours, and our custom made gantries really do put you in control of the specifications.
There are pros and cons to consider whatever gantry configuration you choose to adopt, so make sure you think carefully before you commit to a particular setup. If you need help and advice, you can count on the experts at Lifting Gear Direct to point you in the right direction.
Extras available include:
· electric isolator switch
