Original Press Release

Spider Provides Manufacturing Plant with SpiderRail and Customized Counterweight Solution

Press release date: Jan 20, 2014

Seattle – Spider, a division of SafeWorks, LLC, recently sold nearly 200 ft of SpiderRail™ temporary guardrails as well as customized counterweights to an aircraft manufacturing plant in Everett, Washington.

The perimeter edges of the rooftop at this 125-ft facility required a temporary, portable guardrail system with built-in toeboards to protect workers from potential fall hazards. The SpiderRail™ system, which exceeds OSHA's fall protection requirements, was easily and efficiently assembled and installed without damaging the delicate hybrid rooftop. The sections can also be easily repositioned and stored as needed.

In addition, Spider customized its standard 50-lb counterweight to meet the customer's corporate maximum lifting capacity of 40 lb. The custom design also included the addition of handles and standard dimensions to make transporting and storing these fifty-eight counterweights easier and more cost-effective.

Spider was able to provide this customized solution in just three weeks.

For more information on the SpiderRail™ system, available for rental or sale from Spider's 25 locations in the Americas, download the brochure at
