1k 2k 4k 6k & 8k A Frame Gantry

All of EC&MW’s fixed leg A-Frame Gantries are able to roll while loaded.  We design, engineer and manufacture all of our products at our facility in Elko, NV.  Our fixed A Frame gantry crane is built entirely from 6061 T6 Structural Aluminum, making them light weight, portable and not to mention the ease of assembly. With EC&MWs exclusive kick stand assembly some models can even be easily assembled by “YES” just one person.  Some of our other models such as our T Frame gantries easily fit into mini vans, pickups etc.

Uses: Include sewer treatment facilities. Why: Aluminum is a nonferrous material, meaning there is no iron in it. Therefor it does not rust! If requested we can even provide stainless steel casters and hardware to further the corrosion resistant’s to your gantry crane. And if that still is not enough we can manufacture you a complete gantry crane from 316 stainless steel.

Uses: Another use includes the medical field.  We have sold different styles of aluminum gantries to service personal for MRI service work. Why: Again Aluminum is a nonferrous material, meaning there is no iron in it. Therefor it’s not magnetic.

  • Never use gantry for lifting or supporting/moving humans or lifting or supporting loads over humans.
  • Never lift more than rated capacity (Capacity labeled on I Beam)
  • Never use gantry without all hitch & lynch pins and additional hardware secured in place.
  • Never makes any adjustments while gantry is in use or under load.
  • Never slings loads over top of I beam.
  • Never use/roll loaded gantry over any uneven surfaces or on any inclines.
  • Never push or pull the gantry with a lift truck or any other vehicle.
  • Never leave any load suspended in the air unattended.
  • Never work under a suspended load.
  • Never allow load to swing or come in contact with any portion of the gantry.
  • Never place feet or other objects under bases as extension tubes may pass through the base to the ground.
  • Never force or hurry your work or equipment.  You and your equipment will do better and safer at the rate for which it was intended.
  • Never use any product exhibiting deformities, as defined by OSHA 1910.179.  Inspection must be performed by certified personnel.  Any unusual wear or deterioration must be immediately replaced or repaired.
  • Never store gantry where corrosives chemical or solvents are kept.
  • Never position gantry legs where loaded or unloaded gantry can become unstable.  (Keep legs adequately apart. At least 50% of beam length or more)
  • Never position trolley or hoist assemblies on outside of gantry legs.


  • Always inspect gantry prior to each use for missing or damaged parts.
  • Always when moving the loaded gantry, push on the gantry not the load.
  • Always when moving the loaded gantry, keep load as close to the floor as possible and positioned in the center of the I-beam.
  • Always push simultaneously on both gantry legs when moving the loaded gantry.  Not on the load.
  • Always position: I-beam/hoist & trolley directly over center of load before lifting.
  • Always stand to one side of I-beam when assembling/disassembling or making any height adjustments.
  • Always remove trolley and hoist when assembling or disassembling gantry.
  • Always make certain that the load is not attached to the floor and any obstacles that may impede lifting have been removed.
  • Always make any adjustments and or repairs in an area where it will have the least interference with the operation.
  • Always make certain that all operating and safety instructions for all rigging equipment have been read and fully understood.
  • Always make certain all caution/warning labels are in place and legible before each use.
  • Always verify that the rated capacity of the gantry is clearly marked on each side of the I-beam before each use.
  • Always keep visitors a safe distance from work area.
  • Always keep work area clean.  Cluttered areas invite accidents.
  • Always watch what you are doing.  Use common sense.
  • Always store gantry in a safe and dry area, which will be free from weather and foreign materials.
  • Always check that all I Beam clamps/top cap bolts are torque to: 1/2” 13 thread to 51 ft lb. each or 69 nm (newton meters). 5/8” 11 thread to 108 ft lb. each or 146 nm (newton meters).

Important Additional Safety Instructions

  • Warning! Gantry will conduct electricity.
  • Never use gantry where power lines or open circuits are present.
  • It shall be the owner’s responsibility to maintain all warnings and instructions and to see that they are intact, as well as legible.  Free replacement labels are available upon request.
  • When moving loaded gantry observe all wheels are rolling freely.  Excessive force should never be used when moving gantry.
  • You must understand these instructions and warnings prior to use. If you, as the owner or user, do not understand English, it is your responsibility to have all the instructions and warnings interpreted into your native language for full and total comprehension.
  • All users must understand OSHA regulations, ANSI standards and relevant regulations.

Due to our large diversity of past and present aluminum gantry crane designs, EC&MW, Inc and Hospital Rigging Supply, Inc. cannot assume that all acceptable safety measures are listed or that other additional measures are not needed under particular or exceptional circumstances or conditions.  This information and recommendations contained herein come from sources we believed to be reliable and to represent the best current practice.  EC&MW, Inc. & Hospital Rigging Supply, Inc. does not intend this page to be a complete course of instructions on how to use this gantry with complete safety and does not guarantee or represent that the information is absolutely correct or sufficient.

6,000 & 8,000 Lb. Capacity Aluminum Gantries

What is there to say!  We came out with our aluminum 6,000 lb. capacity crane in 2000.  Again, as far as we know, another first in the industry.  Others then followed.  In 2005 we upped to the next level with our 8,000 lb. capacity.  Both models are constructed of the same 6061 T6 aluminum.  Our 8,000 has reached the limits of some aluminum structures such as I-beam.  We manufacture using the largest I-beam available to date, therefore limiting are overall span. These are for individuals or companies with larger lifting needs.  Both 6,000 and 8,000 models come standard with 2 cable lifting winches (not shown) for height adjustment, also has fully adjustable legs widths as well as having four position locking polyurethane casters.
