The Challenge

Wates site engineers outlined to FLG Services that there were two void spaces across the floor, one either side of the main opening used for loading and unloading, which meant that no heavy equipment could be placed in those areas.

The Solution

A solution was provided by FLG Services by utilising available equipment within the FLG hire fleet including a purpose built beam to span the void. Using a 10t Gantry and de-rating it to the required SWL allowed the end user to keep costs to a minimum and still carry out safe lifting operations.

The Results

The following equipment was supplied and installed by FLG Services

  • One Portable Gantry 10t
  • One 5 tonne Electric Chain Hoist c/w radio control
  • One 10 meters Gantry Beam (purpose made)

The design and erection of the 10 meter beam on Portable Gantry legs, allowed the operator lift, travel and lower material via a powered electric chain block.
