A close fit for GGR’s glazing spider crane

It was a tight squeeze for GGR’s second smallest mini crane as it took on this tricky glazing job at a new university building.

This demonstrates perfectly how the minimal dimensions and multi-positionable outriggers on UNIC mini cranes mean that they can reach the awkward, hard to reach areas around a building. 

The 0.995 tonne UNIC URW-095 mini spider crane was paired with an MRT4 glass vacuum lifter, both hired from GGR Group, to install 200kg glazed curtain walling units around the site on a two day job.

The URW-095’s 600mm wide tracked chassis meant that it could be easily moved into position to work around obstacles such as cabins, stairs, hoarding and pillars. The crane lifted materials up to a 5 metre maximum height and was fitted with a searcher hook to install the glass panels that sat close to the building’s roof.

This small spider has a talent for tucking itself away into tight spaces, as it also proved working at this gas methane plant, electrical substation and sewage works.

These pictures were taken by one of our operators who decided to get a bit creative and add an Instagram style filter to his crane photos, we like it!
