Innovative lifting solution saves contractor time and money
Seattle, WA, November 21, 2017 – Spider recently rented three Glazier 2200s to Reilly Glazing, Inc. for glass installation on the façade of the new Aramark headquarters in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The innovative Glazier 2200, a mobile, counterweighted lifting solution, delivers swift speeds up to 70 feet per minute, high lifting capacity up to 2,000 lbs and precise curtain wall positioning to high elevation jobsites. It is easy to set up and reposition due to quick set adjustable tiebacks, standard counterweights and heavy-duty, low-profile casters, and it complies with ANSI, ASME and OSHA requirements for optimal jobsite safety.
With the Glazier 2200s on site, Reilly Glazing, Inc. was able to set 20-29 glass panels each day, doubling the average productivity they realize with a standard crane solution, saving money and putting the project ahead of schedule.
“After seeing a demonstration of Spider’s Glazier 2200 in action, it was clear this was the most practical solution for the project at hand,” commented Dan Reilly, President of Reilly Glazing, Inc. “The Glazier 2200s were easy to transport, simple to operate and required no special training for our crews. Our first Spider experience exceeded our expectations, and we already have plans to collaborate on two upcoming curtain wall projects.”
