Why Tower Crane is Most Suitable for High-Rise Buildings/Skyscrapers?

Everyone who is in the business of Construction industry may not be technically sound and may not be aware which construction equipment is suitable for specific construction.  In this article, we will discuss which specific Crane is suitable for constructing high-rise buildings/skyscrapers.

There are different kinds of cranes are available and each crane is different from another, so they are deployed at the construction sites depending on the purpose/job they serve, these  cranes are  Mobile Cranes, Telescopic Crane, Truck Mounted Crane, Rough Terrain Crane, Loader Crane, Overhead Crane and Tower Crane.

The major job of all the cranes is lifting, lowering, loading, unloading construction materials with the use of pulleys and cables. Crane moves the materials in horizontal and vertical direction at the construction sites.

At the construction site, Crane is used to reduce the effort of workers and time, simultaneously, it ensures safe and faster material movement to height during building construction.

You must be thinking, if all the cranes play similar job, then why there are so many kinds of crane are available in the market. As technology is improving gradually, companies are developing different kinds of machine which suit for specific job at the site.

Therefore, all cranes are not suitable for lifting material while constructing different types of buildings. So Tower Crane specifically designed to lift the construction material at maximum height when constructing high-rise buildings.

Tower Crane is used especially in the construction of tall buildings and it is capable to lift materials of around 20 tons and it can lift the material at maximum 230 feet (70 meters) and its maximum unsupported height could go up to 265 feet (80 meters). When the tower crane is fixed to the ground, it provides the best combination of height and lifting capacity while constructing tall buildings, it is known as a most balance crane.

Tower crane consists of Base, Mast (tower) and slewing unit, this crane is fixed to the ground at the construction site and it always mounted over a strong concrete pad.

Construction workers use the Tower crane to lift verities of construction materials, like concrete, Bricks, large building tools/components and other building materials.

There is no other replacement of the Tower crane when comes to constructing high-rise towers.
