This week, the FTI welcomed our newest member to our specialized equipment family. A Jekko 312, which is essentially a baby crane. These incredibly versatile machines are quickly becoming the standard in the glazing trade and depending on the configuration selected, are used in a wide variety of glazing applications.
Currently ours is set up to suspend either a spreader bar or our vacuum lifting equipment. However, we are looking to outfit our Jekko with a glazing manipulator sometime down the road so as to take advantage of all the features this piece of equipment has to offer.
We also intend to use the Jekko 312 to help deliver rigging, signalling and hoisting training to all of our craft members who are seeking this type of training.
Check out the photos below as well as the link to a video that will give you a better idea of what the Jekko 312 can do.
