Monorail systems are a budget-friendly choice for lifting and transporting products along a fixed path allowing for great layout flexibility.

A monorail is a single beam system that can be straight or curved sections of beam or track. On monorail systems, the hoist/trolley rides on the lower flange of the beam or track.

FIM Cranes & Service provide monorail systems with manual operations and fully motorized setups.

Ceiling-Mounted Monorail Systems

Require no floor space for support columns. The monorail tracks are:

  • Flush-mounted parallel to ceiling beams.
  • Cross-mounted to ceiling beams.


Freestanding Monorail Systems Provide permanently installed monorail systems over long spans where there are no existing structures for mounting. Freestanding monorail configurations include:

  • Cantilevered Systems.
  • H-frame systems.
  • T-frame systems, ideal for parallel, send & return, monorail lines. Overview – Most commonly used in light duty applications: paint lines, production processes, loading docks, and waste water treatment plants.
  • Floor supported monorails are available if your building structure does not support the monorail system. Single beams allow for straight or curved sections for more flexibility.
  • Interlocks and/or switches are common with monorail crane systems to easily move from one system to the next.
  • Ideal for warehouse-to-warehouse transfer.
