Portable aluminium gantry cranes at WETEX 2014 DUBAI, UAE

The 16th Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition – WETEX, themed ‘At the forefront of sustainability’, was held in April at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre.

REID Lifting and our Middle East partner Tools Middle East, exhibited in the British pavilion – Stand BB08, showcasing portable, easy assembly aluminium gantry cranes and davit jib cranes.

The PORTA-GANTRY RAPIDE, a Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation 2013 Winner, is a unique single piece, rapid deployment, ultra-lightweight, fold away gantry lifting system with WLL to 500kg Goods and Fall Protection/Personnel Lifting (Man-ride) capability with EN795-Class B certification, suitable for up to 3 people.

This unit has been augmented by the development of the STOW n GO storage container which protects the equipment during shipping with rails built-in for forklift use or carrying and optional wheels for transporting, wheelbarrow fashion. The container can also be used as a storage box in-vehicle so that tools and accessories can be kept in/around, or stored on top of the container yet still providing clear access to the RAPIDE when required.

With a safe lifting capacity up to WLL 500kg and weighing just 24kg, the PORTA-DAVIT aluminium jib crane is a truly innovative one person ‘pick up and go’ lightweight, portable lifting solution with capability for both goods and personnel lifting. Supplied as a two piece, bagged davit jib crane hoist, the PORTA-DAVIT can be personnel lifting rated and is available in a number of height/reach configurations. For your convenience, the aluminum jib crane hoist can be fitted to easily be used with a portable socket, the PORTA-BASE WLL 500kg, EN795 certified.
