Large plated feet can be fitted during production to enable the lifting gantry to be used in a fixed location Special floor bolts will normally be used for securing the lifting gantry; these bolts can be removed to enable the gantry to be moved and used in another location if needed. This is providing the floor is in sound condition and mounting holes can be drilled in order to bolt down the plated feet.
These types of A-frame gantry systems may be used without the plated feet being securely bolted down, though this is not common practice. The use of parking jacks will solve the problem of unlevel floors and make the gantry much more stable. Stability is key to safe working, which should be something that every organisation considers on a daily basis. Remember to never overload a gantry beyond its limit, or pursue other dangerous practices that go against industry regulations.
The dimensions can be arranged to suit your requirements. The ‘useable’ beam span (between the legs) can be anything up to 5 metres long, whilst the maximum height under the top beam can be up to 4 ½ metres.
