Mini Spider Cranes ideal for the job

Highly flexible and ideal for glass lifting - Mini Spider Cranes in high-rise buildings, for high-level glazing where there are many floors with large areas of glazing to be installed. They can fit into very confined spaces where glass can be lowered from one floor level above to floor levels below. Mini cranes can be easily transported up to the rooftop of buildings or to the relevant floor level where the glass needs to be lowered into position. They can be transported by elevators or craned into position by one of our many tower cranes in our fleet. By using mini cranes to install your glazing you can create a shorter construction period and cut the cost of your project rather than using tower cranes alone.
