    In sensitive environments, such as nuclear, aerospace, or gas & oil, there is no option for equipment failure. In applications where safety is imperative, grapples, drum grabs, and lifting beams can be useful for securely holding materials, using precise movements to relocate hazardous or valuable loads.  One slip or one piece of faulty equipment and the consequences can be catastrophic.

    Custom GrapplesWhen choosing a critical lift device for hazardous locations make sure it:

    • Is made of the highest quality carbon, and stainless steel
    • Is 100% customizable to your exact needs
    • Meets NUREG 0612 and NUREG 0554 requirements
    • Is NQA-1 Nuclear Quality and seismically qualified
    • Operates remotely

    Reliability and quality cannot be compromised when shopping for high quality lifting solutions. At American Crane & Equipment, we can supply you with a variety of explosion-proof, spark-resistant and single failure-proof equipment to keep you and your load moving safely under dangerous conditions.
