Spider began with an infrastructure project. Whatever your access need, Spider has a solution.

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.
