Special Application Floor Cranes
Examples of counterbalance floor cranes for different and unusual applications.
Counterbalanced workshop floor cranes are our speciality, we have what we commonly refer to as our standard range though rarely do our customers take these options without any modifications or enhancements; the reason being that they simply do not need to 'make do'.
Note: The pictures shown are our artists impression only and are only indicative of our capability. (for display purposes only) All cranes are made individually and the the design may be subject to change according to your required specification; the pictures are not to scale, general arrangement drawings will be issued for approval on receipt of your order.
We make all our cranes here in the UK and have the design and manufacturing expertise to either:
- Offer a catalogue of additional features to a standard counterbalance floor crane.
- Modify a standard crane to to meet your production or handling needs.
- You can commission a one off, truly bespoke special crane to your specification to solve an unusual lifting requirement.
Below you will see some examples of our design and manufacturing capabilities; they are shown here purely to showcase our expertese and willingness to to be involved with you, our customers to provide you with a lifting solution using counterbalance floor cranes.

Floor Cranes With Spark Resistant Features / Explosion proof.
For Floor cranes to be used in potentially explosive areas / atmospheres such as Zone 1 or 2, SELS can include any anti-sparking features that our customers specify - this will increase its anti-sparking properties and therefore make the crane more suitable for use in a potentially explosive environment!
SELS will not to take the responsibility of supplying our floor cranes described as 'spark proof' as this is ‘too broad’ a term. We believe that total compliance is probably impossible because of the mechanical operation and movement of a floor crane; i.e. we cannot offer a 100% guarantee that no part of the assembly is capable of generating a spark which could ignite a flame! IE: SELS will supply / manufacture cranes with anti sparking features to our customer’s requirements though will not certified them as sparkproof / explosion proof. Our cranes have been successfully supplied to customers in the offshore Oil and Gas industry in the UK on this basis.
Below are some examples of different features that we can build in to most of our counterbalance floor and workshop maintenance cranes.
Our intention is that by showing all these features in a single location will firstly help demonstrate our design and manufacturing capabilities though also believe that it will assist potential users to selecting features for there own crane requirement that they would otherwise not have realised existed.
|Out riggers give extra stability during the lifting of goods or equipment making for a safer lift, especially for high lifts.
||Lifting and Slinging Point can be fitted to all of our UK manufactured cranes so that the crane can be lifted using an overhead crane.
|Fork Truck lifting pockets are an option to be fitted to all of our cranes.||
||Outriggers and Swivel Castor's fitted with brakes and directional locks. Castor's are fitted to suit the customers environment, for example anti static for anti sparking or cast iron for heavy duty applications.
|Directional locking castor's are shown here with a foot brake.
||Jacking Feet are rarely necessary though may be suitable when lifting off uneven ground to level the counterbalance crane.
|Telescopic vertical column gives adjustable to the jib height.||
||Paint finish suitable for offshore use or powder coated, we can supply the complete range of floor cranes with anti sparking features for use in ATEX, explosion proof areas; offshore oil and gas etc.
||Auxiliary adjustable height lifting Hook
||The Articulating Jib Arm will rotate 15° left or right of centre, shown here for illustration purposes though can be fitted to most of our counterbalance floor cranes.
|Rigid style of jib arm with hook height that can be adjusted with the diagonal tie bar
||Rigid Arm jib fitted with a hand operated hoist, ideal when users need to be able to lift goods and equipment from below ground level
|Horizontal Jib Options - Fixed length with no adjustment, Manual adjustment or adjustable with a hydraulic cylinder.
||Rigid Arm design with Electric Hoist giving infinite possibilities for lifting height, can be supplied with 12v DC battery lifting or mains 110v/ 240v / 415v.
|Power Drive (electric propulsion) can be fitted to any of our floor cranes (DC battery powered) Significantly increased the price though increases manoeuvrability, productivity and reduced manual handling issues.||
||Powered Lifting on the pivoting style Jib arm Floor Crane. Hydraulic lift powered by a 12v DC power pack.
|The removable Jib Arm shown here is a feature that allows the user to fit different styles and lengths of jib, or simply allows the crane greater maneuverability when traveling between jobs.
