Literature Describes

Powered Work Platform

Spider Staging Sales Company has announced a powered suspend- ed work platform designed for shipyard use. The "Shipyarder" platform is 20 feet long by 3 feet wide and of all-aluminum con- struction. It is powered by two electric winches, each with a ca- pacity of 235 feet of 5/16-inch wire rope. Rated load is 750 pounds with a 4:1 safety factor.

A unique feature is the 4-foot platform extensions on each end that may be raised or lowered while the Shipyarder is in sus- pension. One-man operation is pro- vided by a single station control that can be repositioned to any point on the platform handrail.

The Shipyarder may be rigged and used while the ship is a dry- dock or afloat.
