Six suspended platforms were used

The mesh banner, weighed over 1,000kgs with a height of over 30 metres and a width of almost 60 metres.

The company provided 12 Zmac/1000 hoists, six modular platforms, and various tower frames and outriggers to Sign Lite, the contractor responsible for erecting the massive advertisement. Spider then completed the rigging work that enabled the lifting and placement of the sign, while allowing access for workers to attach the advertisement to the building.
