Jib Cranes for all your Lifting Applications

At Redfern Flinn Lifting Equipment, our Sydney, Melbourne and Newcastle sales teams have the knowledge and experience to design, build, install and service all types of jib cranes, including freestanding (pillar) and wall mounted jib cranes. Robustly constructed and easy to use, our jib cranes are a cost-effective solution for safely lifting loads in localised areas in your factory or warehouse.

Our jib crane options have the capacity to support loads of up to 2 tonnes and have jib swing arm beam lengths of up to 7 metres. They are standard with 270 degree slew, with additional options including powered slew, 360 degree rotation, or articulating arms.

Different lifting device options include GIS electric chain hoists (with a manual or electric trolley), as well as vacuum lifters, manual chain blocks and spring balancers – depending upon your requirements and budget.

Applications

At Redfern Flinn Lifting Equipment, we offer both freestanding (pillar) jib cranes and wall mounted jib cranes. The freestanding (pillar) model has the hoist mounted on a freestanding column, whilst the wall mounted model is installed on an existing pillar or wall in your factory or warehouse, making it suitable for worksites that have limited available space. Our jib cranes are suitable for safe lifting across a variety of industries – including manufacturing, packaging, transportation, utilities and mining.

Redfern Flinn designs, manufactures and services jib cranes in accordance with Australian Standards AS1418 and AS2550.1.

Our jib cranes are ideal for use with a GIS electric chain hoist. Our range can also be used for a variety of purposes and applications, as well as being used with a wide range of lifting attachments. These include chain hoists, manual chain blocks, vacuum lifters, and spring balancers.

Servicing and maintenance

The best way to guarantee the safety of anyone operating your freestanding (pillar) or wall mounted jib crane is to ensure it receives regular service & maintenance by qualified and experienced service technicians. At Redfern Flinn Lifting Equipment, we understand that a fully functional crane is a safe crane, which is why we provide our clients across NSW and Victoria with scheduled preventative maintenance and servicing, as well as 24/7 emergency breakdown support. Whether you need a regular service and inspection or require assistance for a crane that has broken down, you can rely on our service & maintenance team to promptly attend your worksite and carry out any necessary repairs.

Our trusted and reliable service teams remain committed to improving employee safety, increasing productivity in your workplace and reducing operational downtime through service and maintenance of your lifting equipment. Beginning all service work on your crane with a comprehensive inspection, every step we take is designed to improve employee safety, increase efficiency and preserve the life of your equipment.
