Runway and Columns

Mussell Crane offers a wide range of Runway and Column Support Systems

Runway systems designed for top running crane applications consist of a rail on which the end trucks run on. This rail is fastened to the runway beam and the beam is supported by the columns. On the other hand, under running systems run on beams that are suspended from the rafters.

Columns can be free standing or tied back to the building if additional support is needed.
