With specialized equipment and unique, below-the-hook rigging tools, we're up to any challenge.
Our customized rigging services are designed to help you meet the challenges of time and space constraints, minimize downtime, and safely lower your project's overall cost.
We can cut your critical path with innovation. The removal and replacement of heavy plant equipment often involves complicated and time-sensitive challenges, especially during outages and turnarounds. Barnhart's world-class innovation, engineering and technology gives you customized solutions to minimize downtown and keep your plant operational.
Barnhart has one of the nation's largest inventories of equipment for alternative lifting and engineered rigging. Our wide range of options – Modular Lift Towers (MLT), tip sticks, skid systems, pull-up gantries, cantilever systems, hydraulic turntables, strand jacks, powered saddle rollers, sliding gantry, self tailing, and hydraulic gantries, combined with our unique, below-the-hook rigging tools, allow our engineers to design innovative solutions to difficult lifting challenges. These specialized lifting solutions offer a competitive alternative to traditional cranes, often providing lower site congestion and mobilization costs.
All of Barnhart's processes, as well as our custom designed tools, are designed by our engineers with the optimum safety standards in mind. Efficiency and speed are useless attributes without safety.
Engineered for Innovation
Because most of our specialized rigging tools were designed and fabricated by our in-house engineering team, no one knows them like we do. Each tool is custom designed to solve the unique challenges faced by our customers.
Often the real benefit to accessing Barnhart's crane inventory is what happens above the hook. Barnhart's custom-engineered rigging tools can help safely save hours or even days over traditional methods used by other crane companies.
Obstacles Are No Obstacle
Our alternative lifting and rigging tools minimize jobsite congestion to make it easier to move plant equipment in, out, up and around congested plant equipment - without modifying or removing existing structures.
Over 50 Branches
Barnhart has one of the largest crane inventories in North America. When our inventory is combined with our national network of branches and other rigging tools, there are very few jobs we can't handle.
