Why buy a lightweight portable aluminium gantry?

If your business needs to lift up to 5000 kg in a limited space and you need the maximum amount of flexibility and movability from your crane, then our Porta-Gantry mobile gantry crane ticks all the boxes. This is a crane that’s been designed to provide a highly versatile, yet very secure lifting solution for a multitude of operations. If you need to lift or lower heavy loads, our aluminium portable crane is worth a look. It’s ideal for operating in confined areas, such as elevators or drainage shafts. Here are some of the other benefits of our porta gantry system.

Lightweight: Made from lightweight aluminium, our Porta Gantry is easy to move and transport from site to site. This makes this crane ideal if you need to disassemble and reassemble it in another location. For example between different job sites or if you need to move the crane frequently inside your factory or warehouse to different operational areas. 

Easy to move: With 360 degree lockable castors, our Porta-Gantry can easily be swivelled around its A-frame and moved from one work area to another. There’s no need to dismantle the gantry if you only need to move it to another workstation. It will simply roll along the floor with minimal resistance to its new location. The lockable castors provide an additional safety measure when either moving the crane or operating it at a workstation.

Lifting options: With our Porta-Gantry aluminium gantry crane, you have plenty of lifting options. This means that if you need to lift varying loads, this is likely to be the best crane for your needs. Under these circumstances, you don’t need multiple cranes for different load capacities, you just need to select the height of the frame and length of the beam for the job. 

Various applications: Whilst the purpose of this gantry is to lift or lower heavy items, it is also suitable for personnel safety applications. Essentially, our Porta-Gantry is a one-size-fits-all for anything weighing up to 5000 kg. These applications can include lifting or lowering engines, sump drains, building materials, landscaping supplies, stone sculptures and so on.

Weather resistant: If you need to use your aluminium gantry outdoors, then the robust aluminium frame is corrosion-resistant and long-lasting. This increases the versatility of the Porta-Gantry crane allowing you to use it in all weathers, both indoors and outdoors.

User-friendly: Since it’s easy to use, assemble, dismantle and move around, this gantry is very user-friendly. These features reduce worker injuries, whilst increasing efficiency at your workplace, whether in a factory, warehouse or on an external job site. It also means that you don’t need as many people on the floor or job site, because all the heavy lifting is performed by this one crane.

Our Porta-Gantry aluminium gantry is a practical and affordable lifting solution for many businesses. Offering a variety of applications, lifting tolerances and configurations, it’s a system that not only increases productivity but also reduces workplace injuries.
