What are Portal Cranes?
Portal cranes, also known as gantry cranes, are a type of crane that lifts objects up by a hoist that is fitted in a hoist trolley and can move horizontally on a rail or by a pair of rails that are fitted under a beam. The ability of the portal crane to move back and forth across the rail is convenient but some portal cranes have only a fixed gantry, especially when they are lifting heavy loads like railway cargo that is easily moved by virtue of the wheels beneath them. Specifically, portal cranes:
- Often cost less than bridge cranes
- Are available in spans up to 150 feet and capacities of up to 150 tons
- Can be used both indoors and outdoors
- Are built to meet the demands of high duty cycles and multiple shift operations
- Provide decades of reliable service
