Building materials HANDLING

Wherever there is an involvement of short-distance movement or within the confines of a building projects operators use material handling equipment to Load, Unload, erect, place and transport various goods in variety from point to multipoint. 

Whilst we categorize building materials handling into 3 types, we focus on the bricks application. 

·         Brick/Blocks: Brick Handling Application 

·         Precast/Pre-fab: Heavy-Lift Application

·         Scaffoldings, Shuttering plates, Jumbo Bags, Marble Slabs, Piling Cage etc: General Logistics Application

Brick market segment is driven by rising urbanization, increase in demand for residential, commercial and construction activities to develop an existing facility. PALFINGER knuckle boom cranes offer a versatile, safe and efficient way of handling these building materials.

Especially in India, we introduced our brick cranes as a superior choice over pick and carry and manual loading. Our brick loader cranes enable safer operation and minimal damage to the materials transported.


Recommended models for the brick business


Full lifting power of fly-jib available when crane’s extension booms are not fully extended.
