A Ragno TZX 225 produced by the Italian manufacturer Palazzani Industrie has gone to work in one of America's most famous concert halls, The New World Symphony Orchestral Academy in Miami,Florida.

The Ragno TZX 225 is used chiefly to tune lights, for maintenance and to clean the building's internal and external panels. It was chosen because of its compact overall dimensions and light weight (2500kg), which means the platform can operate in extremely narrow spaces and on delicate surfaces without causing damage including to the concert hall's parquet flooring

The Ragno also addresses issues of eco-sustainability with its DC electric engine to avoid air pollution and noise. The batteries allow long working cycles lifting the staff of to a height of 22.5m to carry out work at the hall.
