Handling Systems offers a wide variety of straight and curved ceiling and floor mounted monorail systems. Ceiling mounted systems are available with drop or flush mount hangers. Floor mounted systems are available in both ‘A’ frame and ‘H’ frame supports. With the expertise to engineer and design, Handling Systems is capable of manufacturing most any custom built free standing monorail system to accommodate a variety of applications.
Handling Systems offers both ‘A’ frame style monorail supports (floor mounted gantry style) or ‘H’ frame straddle leg supports. ‘H’ frame support structure allows for support column placement free of machinery and forklift traffic.
A monorail system consists of a single straight or curved I beam supported at each end (middle supports may be necessary depending on size) with a trolley and hoist to travel back and forth for material handling. Monorail systems are used to aid in material handling were x,y,z movement like that in a bridge crane is not needed. Most commonly used over a row of machines, in hallways or passages, through paint booths, or to assist in truck loading. Monorail systems are available with festooning packages to keep the air hose or power cord out of the way of the load and user.

Handling Systems International monorails provide impressive layout versatility, encompassing curved tracks, multiple tracks, and switches to various spurs.
These cost-effective monorails present an ideal solution for work environments unserviceable by bridge cranes, challenging-to-reach spots, buildings with lofty ceilings, or outdoor spaces lacking pre-existing overhead infrastructures.
Handling Systems International Monorail Cranes are perfect for manufacturing procedures that need the transportation and lifting of products along a predetermined route, for example, during painting operations, transporting raw materials to their respective workstations, or moving goods between warehouses.
Freestanding monorails come in handy when:
The architectural structure of the building is not robust enough to support a crane
Ceilings are laden with obstructions such as air ducts, skylights, or overhead storage
Semi-permanent solutions are necessary due to leasing contracts
There is a need for a tailored width and length
A floor-based monorail system is intended to be used alongside a ceiling-mounted system
