Scarlett Graces' awkward situation in Leeds
Posted on 13th December 2018 at 13:47
High Reaching Solutions were asked to supply a solution to an awkward situation in Leeds. Decorators needed to work safely at height, 11 meters up and in a relatively confined internal space.
They needed Scarlett Grace, our Platform Basket 13.80 Hybrid narrow tracked spiderlift as she was small and able to set-up and operate in a confined area. With her outrigger footprint of less than 3 meters, both in width and length and her boom just short of 3.5 meters in length without the basket attached. She also had negative tail-swing and her lithium batteries kept noise down to a whisper and engine fumes were non-existent, which is ideal for working internally.
Getting into and out of the building was also very difficult as the approach to the front doors was either via steep steps or a slight incline from the side. Using the incline didn’t leave much room for turning Scarlett Grace before she went in or came out and then there was the TWO sets of doors, the front doors then offset internal doors, but with a little bit of thought and some ingenuity she managed to do it.
The decorators were over-the-moon with Scarlett Grace, her easy to use controls enabled them to get their job done more efficiently than they thought possible.
