The lightweight Outrigger Platform (OP) is a fully assembled platform designed to support loads up to 4,000 lbs. and position loads outside the building's edge for safe crane access. It incorporates a heavy-duty, diamond-deck-steel floor (flush with the concrete floor) for smooth rolling of material onto the platform. It is quickly and securely mounted to the building with post shores or optional through-bolting. Features include "snag-free" side walls and proper rigging to ensure a safe flying operation.
