Monorail Cranes in Edmonton, AB

What Are Monorail Crane Systems?

A monorail crane system is a custom-designed overhead track that allows trolleys to travel overhead carrying heavy loads from one place to another. Monorail crane systems can improve efficiency, safety, and productivity in commercial and industrial applications. At TK Truck Body, we provide commercial and industrial clients with custom service truck body configurations, parts and equipment, service and repairs, and quality heavy equipment, including polar crane lifts, crane trucks, chipper trucks, landscaping trucks, and monorail crane systems in the greater Edmonton, AB area.

Improve Your Workflow With Monorail Cranes

A monorail crane system can speed up production times and efficiency and reduce the burden on your employees. Installing a monorail crane will create a safer work environment by lowering the risk of lift injuries, crush injuries, and slip-and-fall accidents. A crane can hoist, lift, and transport oversize loads and safely move them from one production station or work area to another, without risking worker safety. A ceiling-mounted monorail crane system allows you to preserve floor space and maximize vertical space while making it easy to move heavy loads and equipment throughout the facility.

Types of Monorail Crane Systems & Which Type You Should Choose

A monorail crane can be installed on a curved track, on multiple tracks, on multiple spurs, or on hangers for slopes. There are two different types of monorail crane systems that we can install, even if you don’t have any existing support or mounting structures:

  • Freestanding Monorail Cranes – Freestanding monorail crane systems do not require any existing mounts, structures, or rail systems. We offer cantilevered, H-frame, and T-frame systems.
  • Ceiling-mounted Monorail Cranes – A ceiling-mounted monorail crane system doesn’t require any floor space. We install rails or tracks on the ceiling and attach them to existing ceiling beams using a flush-mount or drop rod hanger.

We recommend installing freestanding monorail crane systems in facilities where:

  • There is no existing support structure for a ceiling-mounted system
  • There are obstructions on the ceiling that prevent installation or operation
  • You need a semi-permanent crane installation
  • Your facility requires customizable width and length

We recommend ceiling-mounted monorail crane systems in facilities where:

  • Bridge cranes are not feasible
  • You need to maintain floor space
  • You have high shelves you want to reach
