Light Crane Systems

A solution for smaller operations and restricted spaces.

Our Light Crane Systems provide the perfect solution for safe overhead handling and transportation for loads of up to 2tonnes. This means they are particularly ideal for smaller operations where lightweight handling is required.

Street Cranexpress can tailor-make your light crane to support a variety of applications, and our highly durable, modular, and flexible design provides versatility allowing for easy relocation and/or expansion as and when required.

A light crane from Street Cranexpress can be constructed as free standing or ceiling mounted but the precisely aligned track sections and switches we use ensure that your crane fits in the space available - even where structural limitations, workshop obstructions or limited floor space may be a concern.


One of the key features of our light crane systems is that they are designed with the operator in mind, enabling your employees to safely handle heavier loads than they could manage alone thus offering:

  • Ease of movement
  • Reduced fatigue
  • A user-friendly system
  • Accurate load positioning
  • Increased output of your workshop


All light crane systems installed by Street Cranexpress are robust and have low maintenance requirements that can be easily taken care of by us.

Street Cranexpress can work with you to find the optimal overhead light crane configuration for your requirements, adapting systems to suit the job in hand and the available space. You can trust us to design and install your light crane system anywhere you need: quickly, safely, and tailored to your needs.


Case Study: NG Bailey

As part of a workshop refit, engineering group NG Bailey asked us for an overhead crane solution that would reduce operator fatigue and increase safety, without sacrificing precision or putting additional stress on the building. We delivered this solution in the form of a floor-mounted light crane with an LX Electric Chain Hoist.

Designed and installed by Street Cranexpress, the light crane system maximises cross- and long- travel in the workshop. The truss-reinforced bridge spans 10 metres across and moves along a similarly reinforced gantry, running the 22 metre length of the building.

The workshop is now in full service for stainless steel pipe cutting, welding and extrusion duties.
