Counterweights & Accessories

Counterweight bars are available with varying load capacities.

Save significant rigging time and effort by locating the outrigger counterweight bar on a roof deck or structure. Weights slide easily onto the counterweight bar, eliminating the need to lift weights higher than waist level.

Note: Spider offers counterweights in a variety sizes. Please contact your Spider representative for more information.
