Spider Provides Access for Painting of St. Louis Mural

Seattle – Spider, a division of SafeWorks, LLC, recently provided the suspended scaffolding solution for the painting of a custom 1,200 square foot mural on the exterior façade of a radio station’s headquarters in St. Louis.

The talented muralist team from On the Wall Productions turned to Spider for a standard rental equipment solution to get them to the work. Spider provided two swing stages, one 35 feet in length and the other 20 feet. They were powered by SC1000 traction hoists and equipped with beam tie-downs and an outrigger beam support stand. Spider’s St. Louis team rigged all of the equipment and provided on-site basic user training to enable the muralists to safely and efficiently operate the equipment.

Additionally, Spider provided the fall protection solution, including harnesses, lanyards, rope grabs, lifelines, and termination plates.

"I used Spider Staging on my first mural in the 1970s, and it was a breath of fresh air to once again be working withtheir pros in St. Louis on this challenging outdoor mural project,"  commented Robert Fishbone with On the Wall Productions. TheSpider team helped us plan well to maximize our time and costs, provided exceptional safety and stability, and gaveus the same attention that they would to a million dollar client. Also, the suspended staging was easy to use and did not obstruct the views of our work with crossbars and shadows, as built-up scaffolding typically would. I highly recommend Spider to anyone considering a project where suspended accessis required."
