A compact trailer crane hired from GGR Group proved to be the ideal machine for tackling high level reglazing at a BT office in South Shields, Tyneside recently.
The 1200kg capacity Starworker 1200 was hired with a DSZ2 glass vacuum lifter to replace a damaged angled unit at an 18.5 metre height at the £10.5 million One Harton Quay office building. Working at an 8 metre radius, the Starworker was able to lift the new 330kg unit into position, ready to be fitted by glaziers in a cherry picker basket.
The Starworker 1200 model is just 2.3 metres wide which means it can work in limited space whilst lifting to a height of up to 29.2 metres. Working quickly and with minimal set up time, the trailer crane caused no disruption to the working day of the office’s 500 BT employees.
