What Is an Atrium Lift?
Atrium or spider lifts are a type of aerial lift. The design of the atrium lift base usually includes extendable legs to stabilize the lift. This limits their indoor usage to wide, open spaces such as warehouses, gymnasiums and other open projects. Atrium lifts are popular among the industrial or commercial sectors for this reason. Most atrium lifts have a Z or S-type articulated knuckle boom. Atrium lifts can reach higher overhead areas than other lifts. They’re also a common alternative to scaffolding. Contractors and companies use these lifts instead of scaffolding because they’re fast and easy to set up and start working.
Crawler lifts are also lightweight and compact. Because of these two features, they’re useful for indoor and outdoor work, as they can fit through standard doorways and are gentle on flooring and lawns. Their weight and size make it easy to transport them on a trailer or tilt-back truck.
Some atrium lift rental models also have dual power, meaning you can use gas, diesel or electric to operate them. Using their electric engine is ideal when you’re working indoors to reduce emissions.
Features of Atrium Lifts
Most projects can be completed with a platform height of 55 feet and a horizontal outreach of 21 feet. For extreme situations, you’ll likely want to rent an atrium lift with a higher platform and outreach length.
Atrium lifts typically have a platform width of three feet and a length up to 20 feet. Atrium lifts are lightweight, compared to more heavy-duty aerial lifts. The lift’s vertical reach is between 50 and 70 feet, while its horizontal reach can extend up to 40 feet. Atrium lifts can be diesel, gas or electric.
Atrium Lift Rentals For Specialty Uses
Some organizations use atrium lifts to aid in wildlife inspection, control and removal. Instead of carrying step ladders and bulky extension ladders, many have introduced the modern atrium lift to their professions.
Although most atrium lifts are seen in the construction industry, they have a myriad of potential creative uses. Regardless of your exact needs, MacAllister Rentals is here to help you get more done.
Benefits of Renting Atrium Lifts
Other advantages of crawler lifts include:
- Fork pockets and lift hooks for loading and unloading onto a trailer for transport
- Adjustable track widths to increase stability while moving
- Remote drive for guiding a lift through tight hallways and doors
- Interactive display in the platform for operator convenience
One of the benefits of renting an atrium aerial lift is its ability to turn the bucket a full 360 degrees. The machines are ideal for maximum elevation in small areas and provide an extremely high reach. Various contractors and businesses rely on renting a crawler lift to meet their budget and project needs.
Why Rent a Spider Lift?
Renting a compact crawler lift is a smart option if your project requires:
- Cleaning windows of a multi-story building
- Maintaining or repairing high overhead ceilings
- Maintaining building exteriors or interiors
- Fixing roofs
In addition to these tasks, contractors and businesses choose to rent rather than buying because of the following factors:
- Small operating budgets
- Limited storage space
- Short-term or seasonal projects
- Tasks with work areas that have high heights
For example, a contractor may look for atrium lifts for rent if they’re doing roofing work and don’t have the storage space or time for handling a lift’s maintenance. Plus, they don’t have to worry about the cost of transporting it to and from the site.
What to Consider Before Renting an Atrium Lift
When considering an atrium lift rental, look at the final platform height and the horizontal outreach of the model. You may also want to consider if your job can accommodate outriggers to keep the atrium lift in place.
Renting is also a simple process with our experienced team at MacAllister Rentals. When you rent an atrium lift from us, we answer all your questions and help you choose a lift that benefits your project the most. We also inspect every lift before it heads out to its work site, so you don’t suffer from project delays.
