Safety, strength and durability, without compromise

Tower cranes often climb hundreds of feet into the air – and reach out just as far. When skyscrapers are built, tower cranes with lattice-style tower and jibs dominate the skylines as they work at some of the highest building sites anywhere.

Strenx® high-strength steel lets you build taller tower cranes without compromising on safety, strength or durability.
