Retractable Crane Windsail


IDC's design studio developed a new solution for luffing jib cranes facing tough space and safety restrictions in cities. IDC Models supported this by producing models and prototypes, including a full sized prototype which was subjected to wind speeds of up to 100 km/h. IDC Models then went on to manufacture and assemble ‘windsail kits’ - each comprising around 3,000 components, electronic controls and aluminium extrusions of up to 8.6m length - for installation into jib sections by Select.
