How a Spider Could Come to Your Help with Your Next Construction Challenge

With the cost of real estate being so high, it's not surprising that commercial properties are built close to each other, with little space in between. This makes it challenging for organisations to expand their operations, or even to carry out much-needed maintenance to the building. If you have some planned work on your properties in a typically congested "downtown" location, you may be wondering how you're going to get your equipment anywhere near the task. The good news is that there are some cleverly designed cranes available for situations just like you're facing. How could these help you?

Specialised Solutions

Miniature cranes are also sometimes known as "spiders." They represent an excellent way to lift heavy items or access areas that are too small for conventionally sized cranes.

Why A Spider?

These cranes are so named because the legs of the crane can be manoeuvred into very tight spaces in order to provide the right amount of stability for proper crane operation. You can get these machines into very restricted and confined areas. If you need to lift something heavy like a new air conditioning unit up to a second or third floor in one of these buildings, this is the type of machine that you need.

Elevated Work

You may need to work on the roof of your current building, but are worried about the weight of a conventional crane. The spider will come in handy here as well. It has a longer reach, can rotate through 360 degrees and can lift whatever additional machinery or equipment you need up to the top level.

Outside Glazing

If you need to work on the facade of the building, or even replace large panes of glass in floor-to-ceiling windows, a spider crane can be used with special vacuum attachments. You may have a limited amount of headroom or other restrictions to consider, but even the toughest external glazing job is no match for this miniature tool.

Working inside

You don't need to dismantle any doors or even surrounding walls in order to get the spider crane inside your building for essential work. Their diminutive footprint allows them to enter through conventional doors, due to some excellent manoeuvrability. When you consider the large variety of specialist attachments available for this type of crane, you'll quickly understand that this solution is the answer to your prayers.

Why You Shouldn't Be Afraid of Spiders

Machines that can do the job

Starting a construction project involves many steps, with many details. Having a complete plan before beginning is key, and having people in place for each step keeps a project on time and within budget. Making sure you have the heavy machinery to do the job right, the first time, without delays or breakdowns can make the difference that keeps you on schedule and keeps your costs down. Investing in technology that will handle big jobs and heavy loads may seem high, and an easy place to save money, but if it keeps your project on track, it will pay for itself easily in the long run.
