Flexi-Clad

Capacity: 400kg

The Flexi-Clad is a versatile vacuum lifter with the ability to lift horizontal, vertical and roofing panels up to 400kg. The Flexi-Clad can be configured to suit varying panel lengths, handling horizontal wall panels up to 8m, roofing panels up to 16m and vertical panels up to 18m. Customers choose the Flexi-Clad as a safer, quicker and more effective way to install cladding panels on site.

As part of our Wirth Oktopus range, the Flexi-Clad has extra-safety features such as two independent vacuum circuits, each with the ability to lift the nominal load on its own, as well as audio-visual low vacuum alarm. This below-the-hook lifter is battery operated which means there are no cords to deal with during operation.

GGR Group is an official accredited training centre and we offer a 1 day RTITB vacuum lifter training course for our Wirth Oktopus range. Contact us today to find out more.
