With modern architectural design becoming more imaginative, working at height nowadays is much more complicated. The challenges of narrow access, low floor loadings and big reach are welcomed by the Spiderlift Company when working at height both indoors and out. With the largest rental fleet of Spiderlift access platforms in the UK today, The Spiderlift Company are the people to turn to when traditional cherry pickers won’t do, or when faced with large scaffolding costs.

As the Sole UK Distributor for Teupen of Germany, The Spiderlift Company offer sales, hire, service, training and parts for their award winning range of ‘spider’ access platforms. Teupen were the pioneer of the tracked ‘Spiderlift’ some 21 years ago and have been the innovator in their field ever since, with market leading ‘Spiderlifts’ being supplied in every corner of the world today.
With working heights from 12 to 50 metres, there is a machine for hire or sale to reach almost any application. All models are mounted on soft compound, non marking rubber tracks, which have the effect of lowering the ground bearing pressure, making them ideal for driving on delicate internal, or soft external floors. Coupled with extremely low surface loads exerted when in the working position, Teupen ‘Spiderlifts’ can drive and operate on all floors rated at 5kN/m², with models up to 36 metres capable of working within 3kN/m². ‘We are regularly asked to drive and operate machines on tiled, marble, timber, flagged, raised and mezzanine floors, all with relatively low load bearing capacity. With Teupen’s unique concept, we can achieve this where others can’t’, says Steve Hadfield, Spiderlift’s Managing Director.
The Architects choice.

With a reputation for providing the best solution in specialist powered access for reaching tight areas and working on delicate or low load bearing floors, The Spiderlift Company have become the choice of Architects for assisting with cleaning and access plans.
Recent projects include Heathrow Terminals 3, 4 and 5; Swiss Re tower, London; Quartermile, Edinburgh; London Regional Properties, Baker Street Development; Stanstead Airport, Immigration Extension and many more.
So, if you have a working at height problem to solve, can’t use a traditional cherry picker due to narrow access or floor loading issues, or are facing a large scaffolding bill, call The Spiderlift Company and try a new approach.
