The Altrac Monorail System in its simplest configuration is unrivalled for materials handling applications or when loads need to be moved over a greater distance, but not necessarily back and forth as with a gantry crane. The Altrac Monorail may be mounted in the roof or freestanding with a frame.

The design of Altrac incorporating the use of lightweight aluminium will not put undue strain on most existing building structures. Altrac monorail options and advantages include

  • Roof mounted - providing more open work space
  • Floor mounted - providing a free standing structure
  • Smooth and effortless operation
  • Great adaptability
  • Easy to install
  • Retrofit upgrades available

Altrac's capacity to be rolled into bends or used in combination with turnouts and switches means monorails can be designed to fit almost any building envelope. The unique design of the Altrac Trac Trolleys enables them to run smoothly even when negotiating curves. This means the trolleys will not stick or require additional effort from the crane operator.

Altrac monorails can accommodate up to 1000kg MRC and handle any type of lifting mechanism.  Manual, electric, pneumatic hoists or vacuum lifters may be attached.

The lightweight easily installed Altrac monorail system is also utilized in the specialist area of on-site fall arrest systems designed for abseiling down architectural structures, maintenance access on large trucks and equipment such as used in mining and construction industries.
