GGR Group recently played a key role in the installation of a number of glass panels at The Christie NHS Foundation Trust. With nearly 3 decades in the lifting industry, the successful completion of this project is another example of GGR’s dedication to helping customers become better equipped and complete some of the most complex lifts.

Featuring one of the biggest mini cranes in the range, the UNIC URW-706 was able to safely and efficiently complete the job. As a staple piece of equipment in GGR Group’s fleet of Mini Spider Cranes, the URW-706 was the perfect piece of equipment and provided the versatility required.

Following an assessment by one of GGR’s experienced surveyors, the UNIC URW-706 was delivered to the site and quickly began to complete the lift. With a maximum capacity of 6 tonnes, the URW-706 was able to make light work of the glass panels and was able to efficiently lift them up to 14m to install.

Boasting a maximum working radius of 18.6m, the URW-706 caused minimal disruption to the surrounding area but still provided the onsite operators with the flexibility and the capacity that was required.  With a remote control as standard, operators are able to stand at a safe distance whilst lifts are being completed.

This is not the first time that the UNIC URW-706 has been pivotal to the completion of a lift, recently it has been essential to the replacement of a circuit break for a Nottinghamshire electricity board and also the replacement of a number of failed glass units in Ormskirk.
