Typically constructed of steel beams plus a steel support system, either inside or outside a building. Top-running cranes typically run on a rail section that is fastened to the top of the runway beam. Common fastening methods are j-bolts and welded or bolted clips. Special engineered fastening systems may include a cushioning material between the rail and the steel beam for heavy duty or special applications.

Support systems consist of columns or support brackets from existing columns. Runways have assorted bracing techniques either to the building or to floor level. Support columns may rest on the concrete floor or foundations. May require unique designs to fit into challenging locations and or support other loads.

Runways are often included by building supplier as part of new building steel framework.
