CraneVeyor TranStation® Enclosed Crane Systems® Enclosed Track: Ceiling Mounted & Free Standing Monorail

Since 1946, CraneVeyor has been manufacturing traditional "I" beam monorails. In 1998 we developed the TranStation Enclosed Track work area systems. TranStations are economical and efficient systems for manually moving loads up to 4000#. Approximately 1 pound of force is required to move 100 pounds so that pushing with only 10# of force can move a 1000# load. TranStation Ceiling Mounted monorails provide ease of operation, ruggedness and value.

Ceiling Mounted Monorail Cranes

A Ceiling Mounted TranStation is the cost effective and efficient solution when a qualified engineer determines that the overhead structure will adequately support the monorail loads, and the structure is properly positioned so that the monorail serves your handling area. All supports are overhead so that there are no floor support columns required.

The standard ceiling suspension system uses adjustable hanger brackets that attach to level steel beams with flange width to 8'' and thickness to 7/16". Threaded hanger rods (to 72" long) are provided to level the monorail, and sway bracing is used to stabilize the system. This standard system is shown in the technical and dimension pages. Many optional suspension methods are available for a TranStation Ceiling Mounted monorail. If the standard system is not appropriate or cost effective for your structure we can provide one of our pre-engineered options or design the best system for your requirement. An optional suspension system is usually less expensive than redesigning your structure. Your ceiling support structure information should be provided with your inquiry for an optional hanger system.
