In order to effectively lift and maneuver unwieldy and extremely heavy
materials and objects around the workplace, wall mounted jib cranes are
probably the best available solution, and offer a great deal of
flexibility and high performance to ensure maximum wallproductivity gains
are enjoyed.

There are a number of material benefits of a wall mounted jib crane over
other similar alternatives, and these benefits vary between accessibility
issues to the level of weight that can be moved, as well as the overall
stability offered by the unit when it is in use as a lifting agent.
Perhaps the most important benefit of mounting a crane on a wall rather
than having it set as a floor based movable gantry is that when mounted
on a wall, and secured into place, the space that is required on the
floor is minimized.

By allowing operators and machinists to have 360 degree access to
materials on their benches, you can ensure that they are able to carry
out tasks much more quickly, and thereby improve their work productivity.

Different cranes are required for different tasks, and wall mounted jib
cranes are most useful in situations where your staff need to be able to
lift extremely heavy objects into place in order to work on them or carry
out eye level inspections.

A wall mounted jib crane must be securely installed, and when properly
fitted and tested, weights of around 2,000 pounds can be lifted by the
arm. Rotation of 180 degrees is possible where space allows, and with a
jib length of up to 89 inches available, these units offer a wide range
of access to make manipulation of otherwise unwieldy objects a much
simpler proposition.
The ideal method of mounting one of these units for optimal security is
on a vertical girder. The actual height can be set appropriate to your
business needs, but it is recommended that for safety the minimum height
of the jib should be well above head height. The jib must be fitted
horizontally, and is supported by an 85 inch cable for stability. The
actual lifting gear can be moved along the jib, as required, and both
electrically powered and manual lifting is possible depending on the
individual installation.

Where a lower roof space precludes the use of a cable staying system, a
wall mounted jib crane with a cantilever is recommended. Thanks to a back
weighting, similar levels of stability are possible, although the overall
weight of the unit is marginally higher. Performance levels are
identical, with lifting capabilities up to 2,000 pounds possible, while a
90 inch jib length means excellent access to a wider area of the work
shop floor and more flexibility for staff.

Regardless of the exact system that you opt to install in your workplace,
you will find that the wall mounted jib cranes are both efficient and
hardwearing and will serve you well in the long term. Purchasing one of
these fine lifting systems should be seen as an investment in, rather
than a cost to, your business.
