Single Girder Overhead Crane

With over 30 years’ experience, we are UK market leaders of suppling and installing single girder overhead cranes, also commonly known as single girder gantry cranes or single girder bridge cranes.

Single Girder Overhead Cranes

The single girder overhead cranes consist of one girder supported on the end carriages and an underslung hoist unit, with either a wire rope electric hoist of electric chain hoist. The hoist commonly runs on the bottom flange of the girder.
Single girder overhead cranes are commonly used for safe working loads from 500kg to 10 tonne SWL and for light to medium duty applications. They are also perfect where there is limited headroom or limited general workshop space. They usually span shorter distances between crane rails.
Single girder overhead cranes are also a more cost-effective option as they weigh less, meaning they are made from less material and the drive motors have less weight to move on the track.
We carry a large stock of single girder overhead cranes and we manufacture brand new single girder overhead cranes to the individual customer’s requirements.


Quality is of the upmost importance here at E&C. We adhere to ISO 9001 and comply with CE Mark standards. When refurbishing used cranes and lifting equipment, or manufacturing brand new cranes, we conform to a strict quality control procedure at all times.
We manufacture our cranes in accordance with BS466 and BSEN 15011:2011
