In any suspended scaffold, the rigging is a vital part of the system and crucial to the safety of the workers who use it. There is no room for defect or sub-par quality. Spider has been engineering quality rigging supplies and solutions for work at height in the Americas for nearly 70 years. We helped to pioneer the ANSI/SSFI SPS 1.1-1/03 standard which guides contractors in the evaluation of their rigging products, ensuring they are built to a common testing and labeling standard. We were first to market, and we continue to lead the curve of innovation at the request of our customers, providing rigging solutions for applications that require optimal performance and increased productivity.
