Glazing Crane

Here at John Knight Glass we are constantly investing in the latest technology to ensure we are at the forefront of the glazing industry. With each year that passes we are being required to fit larger pieces of glass year on year. To ensure the safety of our staff and the competitiveness of our installation costs we have invested in our very own crane.

If you are looking to install glass products with large expanses of glass a chat with our sales team is well worth it as we can be very competitive on price and have both the equipment and experience to install the most demanding products with ease, ensuring the success of your project.

Cost Effective

Our crane enables us to utilise a mechanical aid when installing larger, heavier pieces of glass which are becoming more common due to the increase of both weight and size of modern architectural glazing.

Using a crane allows us to complete these installations much quicker and safer than ever before and with fewer men, ultimately reducing the cost of installation which is something we can pass on to our customers. Our crane is extremely compact and can navigate through extremely tight gaps which are not accessible by traditional cranes.
