This particular gantry frame or trestle comes in three main parts, the two A-frames complete with folding support brackets and the main runway beam to which the gantry hoist is attached. For additional trestle stability there are trestle tie rods available which brace out the a-frames at the bottom. The tie rods are optional although are usually recommended. Ballast boxes are also an optional extra, but highly recommended.
The ballast boxes fit to the rear of the frame and can be filled with the appropriate weight in order to counterbalance the trestle and hoist.
We have a choice of safe working loads available for the gantry frame and ballast boxes. 300 kg, 800 kg and 1000 kg can be accommodated. You can view the dimensions below.
We have a great choice of gantry hoist lifting accessories available to further enhance the use of your scaffold and gantry hoists. The range includes products which aid in the lifting of particular tools and materials such as hoist buckets for transporting pre-mixed or dry mortar, brick baskets for hoisting many bricks in one go and wheelbarrows and slings to lift an empty or fully loaded wheelbarrow with optimum safety.
