Overhead Bridge Cranes: Single Girder vs. Double Girder Design

A single girder or double girder design will be one of the largest contributors to the complexity and overall cost of a new overhead crane system.

In this podcast, we’ll discuss the advantages, disadvantages, and differences between single girder and double girder bridge crane systems. You’ll want to give careful consideration to the bridge design of your overhead crane system to make sure that you understand the requirements of the lifting task and the environment where the crane will be operating.
