Jib Cranes


NIKO manufactures and supplies jib cranes that are built upon customer requirements to ensure
they fully satisfy client’s lifting needs.
Therefore, we provide a wide range of different types of jib cranes
depending on the workplace of the client.
As a result, users are able to handle the loads easier and in a more flexible way in working spaces.

Over-braced (OB) Profile Jib cranes – Freestanding

OB Profile Jib cranes are braced above the NIKO track profile. This type of jib provides the most free running travel along the arm and therefore is generally the easiest type for the operator to use. NIKO freestanding jib cranes are supplied in kit form and comprise of 2 main parts: the pillar and the arm. The pillars are designed and fabricated to suspend the required jib arm type. The arm is fixed to the column using a pivot pin.
The arm then rotates around the pillar and enables lifting within a predetermined arc.

Over-braced (OB) Profile Jib cranes - Clamp around Column Mounted


NIKO column mounted jib cranes comprise of an arm and a pair of brackets that can be clamped around an existing building column/stanchion/pillar. OB Profile Jib cranes are braced above the NIKO track profile. This type of jib provides the most free run­ning travel along the arm and therefore is generally the easiest type for the operator to use.

Over-braced (OB) Profile Jib cranes - Wall Mounted


NIKO wall mounted jib cranes comprise of an arm and a pair of brackets that can be bolted or welded to an existing wall or building column/stanchion/pillar. OB Profile Jib cranes are braced above the NIKO track profile. This type of jib provides the most free run­ning travel along the arm and therefore is generally the easiest type for the operator to use.

Over-braced (OB) Profile Jib cranes – Ceiling mounted

Over-braced (OB) I-beam Jib cranes


Over-braced I-beam jib cranes are braced the same as profile arms, but with an I-beam underneath rather than a NIKO track profile. These are generally used when powered travel is required along the arm. Freestanding, clamp around a column, wall mounted and ceiling mounted types are provided.

Under-braced (UB) I-beam Jib cranes

I-Beam Jib Cranes are generally used when powered travel is required along the arm. Under-braced I-beam jib cranes, are braced below the arm onto the underside of an I-beam. These are the lowest headroom variation and therefore are normally used in areas where headroom is limited. Freestanding, clamp around a column, wall mounted and ceiling mounted types are provided.

Articulated NIKO Jib Cranes

This type of jib arm has a second pivot point along the arm and a fixed suspension point at the end. The second pivot enables the jib arm to lift and rotate within a 360° arc. The footprint of the arc is limited in some areas by the way the arm articulates around the central joint, but it does allow the arm to operate in a way that will enable it to miss obstacles that an ordinary jib might collide with. Freestanding, clamp around a column, wall mounted and ceiling mounted types are provided.
