Quick Inquiry

What is a bridge crane runway:


The runway system of an overhead crane is the structural support for your material handling solution. This includes the beams, columns, and rails that the crane utilizes to perform the defined task or tasks. To complete this solution, bridge or girder end trucks run along the installed rail which is secured to the top of the runway beams. These beams are typically supported by one of the two main components within your structure as determined by the configuration of your crane. The top running travelling crane beams are mounted to columns while the under running crane beams are supported from the structure of the roof.


When adding a new crane into your existing building or location, it is important to confirm if the existing columns can support the load required by the new crane and runway or if installation new columns will be required to support the system. If there is a need for new columns, they can be supplied as either tied back columns which are connected to the current structure of the building or can be entirely free-standing columns separate from the structure of the building. Tied back columns are an effective, practical and safe method of providing added lateral support to an overhead crane runway.
