100% peace-of-mind cranes

With years of experience in the engineering and manufacturing of overhead cranes, we’ve partnered with customers with all different levels of knowledge regarding Bridge cranes. We realize that each customor we work with may need some help filling in the blanks in terms their material handling needs, what should be right solutions for them, how to maximise the productivity, and which class of overhead crane may be best for their business.

We want to help you establish a base-level understanding of  Cranes and how you can select a bridge crane that is best suited for your business’s needs.

GOD Bridge CraneS


A bridge crane is a type of crane that includes two overhead runways built into the building’s support structure. A single or double girder configuration, called a bridge, moves the crane up and down the runways, and the trolley and hoist run side-to-side along the bridge. The trolley allows the operator to position the hoist and hook, prior to raising or lowering a load. 

Bridge cranes have different configurations including single girder and double girder designs, and the trolley and hoist can be designed to be top-running or underhung depending on the design of the building structure and the requirements needed to make the lift.

Single Girder
Bridge Cranes

The bridge consists of one girder beam supported on each side by an end truck. The trolley and hoist are underhung—meaning they run on the bottom flange of the single girder. God Crane’s Single girder cranes are typically less expensive due to Reduction in freight expenses, Faster installation, Simpler hoist and trolley design, Lighter runway beams

Double Girder
Bridge Cranes

There are two girder beams that make up the bridge, and they are supported by an end truck on each side. The trolley and hoist run on a rail installed above or below the bridge girders. Double girder cranes are recommended for heavier-duty applications where the crane has to handle heavier capacities and longer spans.

GOD Gantry CraneS


A gantry crane is similar to a bridge crane, but instead of moving on suspended runways, the crane uses legs to support the bridge, trolley, and hoist. The crane legs travel on fixed rails embedded in, or laid on top of the floor.

Gantry cranes are considered when there is a reason not to incorporate an overhead runway system. They’re typically used in an outdoor applications where full beams and columns can’t be installed, or may be used below an existing bridge crane system. Gantry cranes can most commonly be found in shipyards, railyards, special outdoor projects like the construction of a bridge, or in places like steel mills where overhead room may be an issue.



Jib cranes come in a number of different styles and types but do not utilize a runway or track system. They can be stand-alone or column / wall-mounted and offer a wide variety of capacities, heights, and spans.

Jib cranes are space-saving, economical, and are ideal for jobs like maneuvering or moving items for assembly within a small area. They can typically offer 180-360° of rotation, and even small ones can hoist several tons of material.
