Sensitive Environments Require Specific Applications: American Crane can Customize Equipment for Hazardous Areas

American Crane has designed and manufactured numerous cranes and hoists for hazardous areas. Hazardous locations are those in which fire or explosion dangers exist, due to flammable liquids, vapors or gases, or combustible dust or fibers.
