Welcome to our first blog of 2020 and we hope you have had a
lovely and restful Christmas and New Year break. In this blog we will be
continuing our series of looking at different industries and how they can make
use of A Frame lifting gantries, a form of lifting gear which can sometimes be
overlooked.

House building is an extremely hot topic at the moment with
much of the media reporting that the UK is in the midst of a housing crisis,
where more houses urgently need to be built in order to meet demand – a recent study estimated 8.4
million people are affected by the housing crisis
.

As a house building business, you will probably be looking
for ways to make the process even more efficient for your workers on the site and
one of the pieces of equipment that can certainly help with this is an A Frame
lifting gantry. Here are some of the benefits of an A Frame lifting gantry that
may help your home building business.

Portability

One of the main advantages of A Frame lifting gantries is
they are much smaller in comparison to other pieces of lifting equipment so
they can access parts of the building site which other lifting gear might not
be able to as easily due to restricted space. This can help things like
transporting raw materials in and out of the site for where they might need to
be used.

Also, as an A Frame lifting gantry can be easily assembled
and disassembled it is also quite easy to move them between different building
sites easily.

Customisability

Another advantage of A Frame lifting gantries is how customisable
they are as they can be fitted with a variety of different appliances for many
different purposes, from festoon systems and isolator switches for safety, to
pneumatic tyres for transporting objects across difficult terrain or even height
adjustable options so they can be used for a variety of different materials –
the options here are far greater than you might think.

Strength

Another surprising feature is how strong a lifting gantry
can be, with lifting gantries available up to 5,000kg so they can lift many of
the raw materials used in house building projects.
