Tower cranes are one of the most common types of cranes visible on the skylines of the largest & smallest cities all around the world. Tower Cranes have superb horizontal reach because of their size. They can extend depending on the model to approx. 230ft (not quite the entire length of their 250ft jib - due to the laws of physics) and can lift up to 20tons. They are used for mega construction, bridges & the largest of construction sites.
They are an essential part of the modern building phenomenon. A Tower Crane is an advanced balance crane. They are known for providing the ideal combination of reach & height and therefore often used for building construction sites. The crane is attached to the ground using a concrete slab, sometimes it is connected to the sides of structures for stability.
Tower Cranes, depending on the model, can pivot, raise, lower & extend whilst lifting significant weight. A standard tower crane is composed of three primary components: the operators cab, the shorter counter-jib and the jib, which is also known as the working arm.
There are various types of tower crane depending on the job site and the tasks required;
Flat top tower cranes - compact design perfect for sites with strict height regulations, the crane does not have a frame.
Luffing jib tower cranes - does not come with a trolley, versatile tower cranes with fast hoist speed vs other cranes, suitable for any construction site or for smaller sites where over sailing needs to be managed
Hammerhead tower cranes - one of the most common types reliably precise horizontal movement. Designed for easy maintenance, the time-proven design quality & components are engineered to deliver safe reliable machines for working long hours.
Self-erecting tower cranes - as it sounds the unit sets up by itself using it’s motor to unfold. They are often described as a hybrid of a tower & mobile crane, they offer quick set up, fast efficient lifting solutions.
Remote controlled - As they suggest some modern tower cranes can be operated remotely from the ground. They are often used for shorter project, small jobs & on smaller sites.
