This Spiderlift 120 is on hire to the ESB in Limerick. No other machine would access the site. It is in the centre of a completely overgrown area proving the versatility of this tracked machine in getting to where no other machine can.

Help your community group reach new heights

A local club or organisation in [Limerick, Clare] has the opportunity to tackle one of the jobs they have putting off thanks to Blulift.  The specialist access equipment provider has teamed up with Spin Southwest FM to provide one voluntary group or club the use of their equipment for one week.   The prize is designed to help local organisations from sports clubs, Tidy Towns, public buildings committees or community groups to safely undertake jobs at height ranging from painting buildings,  hanging flags,  pruning trees, fixing roofs or tidying gutters, internal church repairs or event filming a major local event.

Speaking at the launch of the promotion John Cusack of Blulift outlined ‘the idea came about when we were contacted by a number of local organisations who use our equipment to maintain sports grounds from fixing floodlights to painting clubhouses.  We felt that many local organisations could address a lot of jobs that they have been putting off due to perceived cost or lack of knowledge of where to source specialist equipment to tackle these jobs safely. The range of applications is very broad so everyone from a group of local residents looking to tidy up their estate to a club looking to give the clubhouse a facelift can benefit from the prize’.  Currently Blulift is used to maintenance national heritage buildings, stadium repairs, buildings maintenance to specialist filming assignments.

The joint Blulift and Spin FM runs on the week beginning Monday 30th April and community groups and local club can enter by listening to Spin Talk each day.  Interested organisations submit the local project they feel would benefit the most by having the use of access equipment to work safely at height.  The winners can select from the Blulift range of UDrive, Trailerlift or Spiderlifts based on the height requirement and whether the job is indoors or outdoors.  The access equipment will be delivered to the winning organisation with full training provided.

Film & TV Media sign up to Blulift

Blulift’s reputation as the leading supplier of access equipment to the Irish film and TV industry was further enhanced with the signing up of a number of the region’s largest film companies for training in the use of the UDrive in a dedicated media training day.

The UDrive is one of the pieces of access equipment most frequently used in TV and film production due to its ease of use, single person operation and ability to move from location to location without any major time lags. The UDrive is currently starring with the production teams of the new TV series based around the Titanic currently being filmed in Dublin and just finished a number of productions in Ardmore Studios. Blulift will also be helping to bring the outdoor broadcast pictures of the GAA’s club championships over the next few weeks.

For more information on the UDrive and its flexibility of use on TV, Film and outdoor broadcast media assignments visit our UDrive page.
