EZ LD Crane
For over a decade the EZ-Systems Hydraulic Deck Crane has proven to be of the highest state-of-the-art yacht crane technology in an aesthetically pleasing design. Nautical Structures manufactures the Lay-Down crane design in capacities from 2200-pounds to 8800-pounds (1000-Kg to 4000-Kg), with and without hydraulic telescoping boom sections. The EZ-LD Crane features a lay-down boom design, with or without a telescoping boom section included. This crane design maximizes available deck length for stowage while stowing in less than 40” (1.0-m) height to ensure integration or concealment behind standard bulwark heights. The crane has been engineered and designed to the MCA “Large Yacht Code” (MCA-LY2), compliant with IMO/LSA–Rules for SOLAS and is Lloyd’s Register of Shipping certified. The crane’s telescoping aluminum boom is capable of being loaded to its full safe working load capacity in any position without restriction. The intelligent engineering inherent in this design allows distributed load-deflection across the boom during moments of dynamic loading, reducing the amount of shock-loading transmitted to the deck. Virtually silent-operating, our Hydraulic Linear Winch system, a totally non-fouling winch design reflects the innovative and dependably safe operating characteristics built into the extending boom. This feature adds the additional element of operational safety as the winch travels with the boom during operation of the crane. This prevents any possibility of two-blocking the system causing damage to the Spectron composite line. Fully class-approved, the linear winch has been developed to meet all IMO/LSA Rules in application as a Rescue Boat Launching Davit. The Linear Winch may be placed into a free-fall condition with lanyard control from the rescue boat or switch control from the hand-controller. Releasing the lanyard at any time during the free-fall will brake the winch and halt the fall. The crane features 320º hydraulic power rotation providing the ultimate in tender-handling convenience. Control of the crane is with a remotely operated wireless joy-stick proportional control on an optional-use removable pendant. Sauer-Danfoss Manual hydraulic controls are also provided, located behind a hinged and latched access panel. A weld-in deck platter is the typical mount for the EZ-Systems Lay-Down crane, although a standpipe mount may also be used in applications with GRP / composite constructed vessels. The EZ-Systems Lay-Down crane is finished to our highest standards. The aluminum structure is chromated and then primed with a two-part epoxy primer. Then the system is faired smooth, and then primed again. The crane is hand sanded, then moved into our heated finish booth where it is coated with a two-part AwlGRIP urethane spray-applied paint finish in a color of white to match your vessel. The crane system is static load tested to 2.2 x design load and then dynamic load tested to 1.1 x design load, with a classification society surveyor on premises for full class certification.
