Current code approaches for overhead cranes South Africa The current South African loading code, SABS 0162: 1989 (Code of Practice for the general procedures and loadings to be adopted in the design of buildings). defines four classes of crane, based on the type of usage for which the crane is intended. The highest and lowest of these are defined in Table 1. The loads induced at each wheel by the action of the crane are then defined as impact factors multiplied by relevant static loads. These are also given in Table 1.
