Spider was founded more than 75 years ago when the Fisher brothers needed a better way to access a 250 ft tall steel bridge over a deep ravine. The result was the original Spider basket and the beginning of the powered suspended access industry.

Whether for bridges or other infrastructure facilities like airports, stadiums, or other large venues, Spider has the expertise, technology, and equipment to overcome the most demanding infrastructure access challenges.



Need fall protection on an open high-rise floor? Concerned about falling debris while performing maintenance or demolishing a structure? Want to position workers above and below to work twice as fast? Need to access difficult-to-reach areas like the underside of a tank roof or the roof of a large stadium? Spider’s complete line of netting solutions can help!
