            Every specific crane requires a cabin that is specifically geared to its environment. Excellent downward visibility is required for a crane in the container throughput sector. Such cabins are furthermore subjected to high dynamic loads. Another example is the offshore cabin, which must be able to withstand weather conditions and the hazards caused by stormy seas. Merford designs innovative cabins for any specific work environment.

            Huge undertaking
            The construction of a new crane is a huge undertaking. To successfully deliver a crane, it is important that the crane builder, the supplier of the operating system, the end-user and Merford Cabins collaborate intensively. In such partnerships we often assume a major organisational role, as a result of which the project runs more smoothly for everyone involved.

            Safety and ergonomics fortunately are elements that are receiving increased attention in crane cabins. The realisation that a healthy, comfortable work environment is of importance and affects productivity is steadily growing. This is why Merford supplies total plug-and-play solutions. A cabin that is already fully aligned with the existing crane back in our production hall. The right dimensions, all necessary connecting options and of course equipped with a healthy, ergonomic layout.

            A healthy, safe and comfortable work environment leads to more efficient working. This certainly applies to crane operators. An ergonomic chair with freely moving operating elements and the right physical support, a ventilation system for a continuous supply of clean air, control of vibrations and sound... All of these factors contribute to an optimal work environment. Merford supplies standard cabins, as well as client-specific solutions.
