Flexi-Clad VCL12

Capacity: 400kg

The Flexi-Clad is a multi-purpose vacuum lifter capable of lifting horizontal, vertical, and roofing panels weighing up to 400kg. The Flexi-Clad can be designed to handle horizontal wall panels up to 8 metres, roofing panels up to 16 metres, and vertical panels up to 18 metres. Customers choose the Flexi-Clad because it is a safer, faster, and more effective method of installing cladding panels on the job site.

The Flexi-Clad, which is part of our Wirth Oktopus series, offers added safety features including two separate vacuum circuits, each capable of lifting the nominal load on its own, as well as an audio-visual low vacuum alarm. There are no cables to contend with while using this below-the-hook lifter because it is battery-driven.

We provide a one-day RTITB vacuum lifter training course for our Wirth Oktopus range at the GGR Group’s official accredited training facilities. Contact us today to find out more.
