Guidefast® Guide Troughs Reduce Cable Carrier Installation Times on Cranes

Low-cost energy supply for crane girders and indoor cranes w/ reduced installation time

For applications such as indoor cranes, the Guidefast guide trough system offers all of the traditional benefits of energy chain® systems versus festoons, with the added advantage of fast and easy installation. The guide trough installation bracket is mounted to the side of the crane girder with a single bolt - fabrication and welding of special brackets is eliminated. Installation times are kept very short, as the guide trough only needs to be mounted in the previously installed brackets and then fixed with clamping blocks. Installation of a complete system can be done by a single person in only a few hours. 

Why guidefast?

  • Reduce your installation time by up to 80% compared to conventional guide trough systems
  • Fits virtually any standard crane girder
  • 2 installation bracket options with integrated strain relief for routing of fixed cables.
  • Standard trough length of 2.0 m - with or without glide bar
  • Can be used for any side mounted application - not limited to cranes
  • Pre-drilled holes for the e-chain® mounting brackets and pre-cut windows in the bottom of the trough for cable entry/exit
  • Standard material: galvanized steel. Also available in stainless steel or black powdercoat
  • Long-term tested to withstand vibration and rough environments
