Nationwide boosts high-level art

29 October 2012

Street artists from Europe and North America used access equipment from Nationwide Platforms to help create Europe's largest open air art gallery in the UK.

The four-day art festival in the city of Bristol saw 40 artists transform 12 multi-storey buildings into permanent works of art.

Three 11.5 metre diesel scissor lifts provided access to the sides of the buildings for two artists at the same time. The artists also used four boom lifts for up-and-over work, including two articulating Niftylift Height Rider for work up to 12 m and two Genie reaching some 27 m.

In addition three Bronto truck mounted platforms, with working heights of 43, 45 and 50 m gave the artists access to the highest points of the buildings, as well as being used by the national media to gain coverage of the event.

The UK-based rental company also provided operator training accredited by the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) to give event participants the knowledge, skills and confidence to safely use and manage the equipment.
