Top Running Knee-Braced Overhead Crane Runway
Knee-braced freestanding industrial crane systems are great where maximum hook height is desired and where additional floor obstructions created by the knee braces are not problematic. Because the system is braced this way, it does not require any attachment back to the building or other structures. Because knee-braced crane structures do not require support headers across the top of the system, they allow the overhead bridge crane to ride on the very top of the structure giving maximum hook height. In many cases the additional hook height provided by this design can be an incredible 10 to 24 inches.
