Located in Bristol, Tennessee, Bristol Motor Speedway is a NASCAR short track venue originally constructed in 1960. When owners installed a Colossus TV, they needed a safe method to deliver technicians to the structure for routine maintenance. Sky Climber was able to help.
We provided a safe system designed to carry two technicians up to the displays on the Colossus TV 140 feet above the infield. A hoist mounted inside the TV structure was wired with wireless remote control capability. Two self-retracting lifelines were installed alongside the tower hoist for operator fall arrest. Lastly, a 3-foot by 3-foot work cage with a gate was attached. The system easily accommodates technicians and their equipment and allows them to quickly reach the screens for maintenance.
