Crane Attachment

Cranes are great to move heavy items into position, however need lots of space, but what to do when there are limited roof clearances? Recently DEC designed a specialized crane attachment that addressed the end client’s need for restricted height and specific access angles. The attachment was designed taking into consideration safety requirements and was analysed with Finite Element Analysis to ensure adherence to the Australian Standards AS1418. Afterwards it was manufactured, load tested and is now in use by the client.
