Safety comes first

Operating in explosive atmospheres means there are different needs for lifting equipment, ranging from standard products to highly advanced cranes. Because of this, we have manufactured our products to be optimized for your specific and often unique lifting requirements. All crane components are selected to improve the high level of safety required for the hazardous atmospheres in chemical and petrochemical plants, oil refineries, gas power plants, wastewater treatment plants, paint shops and other industrial sites.
