GALLERY: A Spider Solution for Glass ReplacementJun 8, 2015
Spider, division of SafeWorks LLC, provided a complete suspended access and material lifting solution for glass repair work on a 10-story commercial office building in downtown Seattle.
All New Glass, which has worked with Spider for years, looked to the company for a solution. Spider provided two swingstages – one 50 feet and another 60 feet in length – each powered by SC1000 traction hoists and rigged with davits, gantries and counter-weighted outrigger beams. Spider also equipped two monorail systems with Beta Max Inc’s Leo VFD material hoists to enable the glass panels to be transported both laterally and vertically.
Additionally, Spider rigged the equipment and provided onsite user training to enable the customer’s crew to reposition the platforms throughout the project, and supervised the first several maneuvers.
“The monorail system [Spider] implemented for this project saved us time and increased our efficiency as we performed glass replacements covering a large area,” said Hugh Snyder, sealant manager and suspended scaffolding coordinator with All New Glass.
The project began in May and is expected to be complete during the summer.
