A popular service used by customers throughout the world, is our READiBUILD™ Preassembled Festoon System service. Available for all of Metreel’s festoon systems this package is designed to reduce the problems associated with installing festoons systems on site.
All READiBUILD™ systems are assembled, in an optimum working environment, with all necessary cable measurements and cutting equipment available for our experts to prepare your festoon.
The assembled system(s) are custom packed, which could range from simple packaging to large ‘A’ frame steel structure, preventing movement/damage in transit to site. Once on site the festoon is rolled directly on to the pre-installed track and terminated at each end to give a perfect working system.
The BEAMRIDER™ range of medium and heavy duty cable trolleys are the first choice for applications that demand ultimate endurance, such as high speed container cranes, steelworks, rolling mills, large bridge cranes and offshore skid systems.
The trolleys are manufactured from stocked parts, which can be assembled to suit your particular cable/hose configuration. In addition the design offers easy cable installation on site as well as access for replacement of individual or multiple cables in the event of accidental damage.
