Knight Global - I-Beam and C-Channel Infrastructures/ Elevations
Selecting your Workstation Crane System
STEP 1 - Know your Infrastructure and Elevations
The first step is to know what types of structural supports are within the working area. If there is not any structural supports to suspend a rail system from, Knight Global also offers Floor Mounted Rail Suspension Systems. It is also important to know the elevation of the structural supports and working heights of the application.

Knight Global - Structural Hangers
Selecting your Workstation Crane System
STEP 2 - Selecting your Structural Hangers
Knight structural hangers are designed to work in conjunction with I-Beams and C-Channel structural supports. Hangers are designed to fit flanges ranging from 2 in. to 11 in. They ensure that structures are within a level environment. If not, then it may be necessary to use adjustable height hangers to compensate for unevenness.

Selecting your Workstation Crane System
STEP 3 - Select your Runway System
Decide which size and length or rail that is needed to build the runways. Aluminum rail comes in 4 in., 6 in. or 8 in. configurations. A simple monorail system for inline point to point transfer of loads can be used with just a runway.

Knight Global - End Trucks
Selecting your Workstation Crane System
STEP 4 - Selecting your End Trucks
Knight End Trucks are a combination of a trolley and a rail structural hanger that joins the bridge to the runway. End trucks are designed to interact with different rail sizes. The end truck trolley must match the configuration of the runway, and the end truck hanger must match the configuration of the bridge.

End trucks are available in many different configurations such as: Single Bridge, Dual Bridge (shown), Dual Trolley, Same Plane, and Rigid.

STEP 5 - Selecting your Bridge Configuration
A runway/ bridge configuration provides for total freedom of movement in the "X", "Y" or horizontal planes providing access to the entire work area. Bridge rail selection is similar to runway rail selection with one additional criteria - is the load offset (cantilevered) or direct?

For direct load applications, typically balancer applications, a single bridge is used. For offset load applications, a dual bridge is used.
