A 3 tonne capacity UNIC URW-506 mini crane and one of GGR’s expert operators took on the challenge of installing 115 glass façade panels to the hospital’s new atrium. The mini crane used a 500kg capacity “6 in Line” MRTA611 vacuum lifter to position each of the 3.6 metre tall units onto the circular shaped structure, which were then fixed into place by glaziers on an access platform.
This isn’t the first time that GGR’s lifting equipment has been rushed to hospital for a glazing emergency. Take a look at how this Libro 500 overhang beam installed high-level glazing at a hospital in Bristol.
