Cranes and Boom Trucks for Glass Installation Projects in NYC
It’s impossible to overstate how much of New York City’s architecture involves glass. Every building has windows. A significant portion of buildings have curtain walls composed of glass and set in aluminum frames. Glass partition walls are a popular feature of many corporate and co-working spaces. During construction and remodeling jobs, glass professionals complete the actual glass installation. However, you’ll need a NYC crane and rigging company to elevate glass prior to installation.
How High Can A Boom Truck Reach?
While some glass installation jobs obviously require a crane, there are times when a boom truck is the better lifting solution. Our boom trucks can lift over 200 feet, which is the highest available in the industry. We hoist commercial glass installation equipment, including vacuum suction cup heavy glass lifters, and maneuver them into the proper position and angle as required by the job.
Boom trucks are useful for elevating glass partition walls and other building materials to height on a building site. Our boom trucks have capacities ranging from 33-50 tons with boom lengths over 200 feet- the highest in the industry. Some of our boom trucks are fitted with flatbeds allowing for easier transport of building materials to your site.
