Transport and Support Frames

Transport and support frames can make moving and maintaining equipment much easier. Dynamic Engineering Consultants can design frames to suit your needs. We make use of the applicable Australian Standards as well as the National Transport Commission’s load restraint guide. In summary the design has to be sufficient to withstand imposed longitudinal and lateral loads associated with transport applications.

In some cases the frames are only used to transport the equipment around on site. In these cases we also perform forklift stability calculations in addition to the structural design. We also adhere to the Australian Standard’s requirements in terms of nameplate requirements.

Below are some examples of transport and support frames:

The frame below has forklift sleeves and can be easily moved into position. The stress analysis of this frame is also shown.
