Oversize Glass Lift for UNIC Mini Crane
A UNIC URW-506 mini spider crane was recently commissioned to help lift and manoeuvre an oversized piece of glass into place.
The UNIC URW-506 was hired from KMB Servis, our UNIC Cranes Dealer in Czech Republic and worked alongside a bespoke glass vacuum lifter to help install this huge 5.2m x 3.5m piece of glass.
Weighing in at nearly 1.5 tonnes, the glass had to be carefully manoeuvred into its optimum position for install. The versatility, heavy lifting capacity and small working footprint of the UNIC URW-506 made it the ideal lifting solution for this project,
Featuring hard wearing, rubber tracks, this mini crane was able to track over the rough, uneven terrain to make it to its install location.
The UNIC URW-506 mini spider crane includes a safe load indicator and radio remote control that allows the operator to pre-define the working area allowing for greater control. The radio remote control also enables the operator to work behind or away from the load, allowing for better visibility, safe proximity and precise placement of loads where required.
UNIC Mini spider canes are often used for big glass lifting projects of this kind where loads need to be handled with care and precision.
