Spider lifts, also known as tracked aerial lifts or spider booms, are versatile and flexible machines that have revolutionized the way outdoor events are set up. They are essentially compact and agile mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) that can reach high elevations in confined spaces, making them ideal for a wide range of applications, including event planning and execution.
Outdoor events require a lot of planning and coordination, and one of the most important aspects is creating a safe and stable platform for the performers, sound and lighting equipment, and the audience. This is where spider lifts come in handy. They are commonly used in outdoor events such as concerts, festivals, and sports events to set up temporary stages, lighting towers, and other structures.
Spider lifts are designed to work in tight spaces where traditional boom lifts cannot reach, such as narrow alleyways, uneven terrain, and steep inclines. They can also be used indoors as they are compact and lightweight. This makes them ideal for setting up stages and other structures in areas with limited access or overhead obstructions.
Spider lifts have several advantages over other types of lifts. They have a low ground pressure, which allows them to work on soft or uneven ground without causing any damage to the surface. They also have an outreach that can exceed their height, allowing them to work around obstacles such as trees or buildings. Additionally, spider lifts have a compact design that enables them to maneuver in tight spaces, making them ideal for events with limited access.
When it comes to outdoor events, safety is paramount. Spider lifts are equipped with safety features such as outriggers, which provide stability on uneven surfaces, and emergency lowering systems, which can lower the lift to the ground in case of a malfunction. They also have non-marking tracks, which reduce the risk of damage to the ground surface.
In conclusion, spider lifts have revolutionized the way outdoor events are set up. They are versatile, flexible, and safe, making them ideal for a wide range of applications. If you are planning an outdoor event, consider using a spider lift to help you create a safe and stable platform for your performers, equipment, and audience.
