Two of the latest additions to the Wilson Access fleet were hired for the first time recently when they were put to work at Project Angel, a £53 million public sector office development in Northampton.
Glassolutions, glass and glazing systems specialists, hired the Hinowa 17.75 Lightlift tracked spider lifts to install glazingpanels on the façade ofProject Angel, which will provide shared workspace for 2,000 public sector employees, including staff of Northamptonshire County Council.
Ryan Crawford, Glassolutions Site Manager, said: “The spider lifts were ideal as their rubber tracks and spreader pads ensured that they did not damage the external granite paving.
“Their working height of 17.06m gave our four-man team easy access to all areas of the building’s facade to install 78 glazed panels. Some areas were particularly tricky to reach due to a 3m metal canopy.”
The Wilson Access Hinowa 17.75 Lightlift is a lightweight, compact and versatile spider lift. It has a working height of 17.06m, a horizontal outreach of 7.5m and its bi-energy operation makes it ideal for both indoor or outdoor use.
