Gantry cranes, otherwise known as portal cranes, are so named because they're built on top of a gantry, which is a structure designed to straddle an object (for example, a freighter) or a workspace. These models are mostly used for outdoor processing and material handling, and consist of a two legged A-frame support. We stock two of the best mobile gantry crane brands in the world, they are two German companies Schilling and Feltes. Their products are known for their superior design and quality of aluminium brilliance. Schillings’ portable gantry crane range provides an ideal balance between portability, ease of use and greater load bearing capacity, whilst still providing the user with maximum flexibility (height can be adjusted to lift different loads).
