Depending on the load bearing capacity of a vacuum lifter varies up to 600kg. Vacuum lifting devices suitable for construction sites vacuum lifting is often the ideal solution to moving materials – in many different scenarios.
When using a spider crane, only a small number of operatives and a crane are required using this technique. This means the costs can be kept down by having fewer workers on site lifting glass

A spider crane is ideal for moving glass units. Not only will it deal well in the cramped conditions, but it will also move and lift at seemingly impossible angles to get the job done. At 0.6m wide, the spider crane is specifically designed for interior access and manoeuvres freely in tight spots

We specify large glass units in one piece that can reach weights of 200kg plus. The spider crane offers ease, safety and accuracy on site. At 0.6m wide, even in a London townhouse or a side access, we get a crane into most position. For a free site survey to asses feasibility, please contact us to book in.

What are the benefits of using vacuum lifters over

other methods and technologies?

Vacuum lifters reduce the risk of damaging the glass being lifted, for glass handling, this is especially important In relative terms, they also increase productivity. Vacuum lifters can speed up glass handling. Using vacuum lifting techniques is safer than manual handling and allows the glass to be delivered and placed with far greater precision. Vacuum lifters have developed rapidly and can now lift severe loads, safely and with ease.
