Top Running Runway

Crane Components | Runway and Columns

Runway systems designed for top running cranes include a rail on which the end trucks run. This rail is fastened to the top of the runway beam either by welds (for square bar rails) or hook bolts (for ASCE rail). The runway beam is supported by columns and/or corbels.
