Monorails offer a viable solution for factories and warehouses that require a fixed path to lift and transport loads. At Redfern Flinn Lifting Equipment, our monorails are highly useful, capable of servicing otherwise unserviceable work areas. This includes outdoor areas that lack pre-existing overhead structures, as well as buildings with high ceilings.

Monorails are also extremely modular, capable of being outfitted with extra tracks, curves and interlocks for more sophisticated applications. Trolleys equipped with hoists can be operated manually, pneumatically or electrically to easily move materials between workstations for improved work flow and productivity.

The Redfern Flinn team is ready to design, manufacture, install and service monorails that accommodate your workplace’s specific lifting requirements.

A variety of advantages

No matter what industry you’re involved in (automotive, chemicals, food production, etc.), monorails are useful for a variety of different applications (parts assembly, machining and palletising loads, to name just a few) and provide a wide range of benefits for your warehouse or factory. These include:

  • Productivity – Capacities of up to 2,000 kilograms allow for a more rapid return on investment, reducing strain on and fatigue of operators
  • Economical – They can cover large work areas, reducing manual operations and requiring less maintenance compared to other lifting equipment
  • Easy installation – Reduces safety risks, minimises production downtime, and increases worker satisfaction
  • Versatility – They can perform different materials handling functions, with a modular design allowing for easy expansion and relocation. They can also efficiently navigate obstacles and aisles
  • Quality – They’re designed to keep out dust and other contaminants, plus the precise and gentle load controls minimise damage to products
