Insulated Metal Panel Handling Is Safer And More Efficient With Vacuum Lifters

Laurel, MT - Innovative construction materials lead to even more innovation beyond just those products themselves, and an excellent example of this can be found in the variety of vacuum lifting products offered by Wood's Powr-Grip (WPG) that are used for handling insulated metal panels (IMP's).


WPG makes vacuum lifters (also referred to as suction cup lifters) that are used on the jobsite for installing IMP's, as well as in the manufacturing plants as the panels are produced. In both instances, WPG's vacuum lifters provide significant labor savings and optimal safety.

Insulated metal panels, also known as sandwich panels, have taken the construction industry by storm in recent years. The increasing demand for energy-efficient buildings, along with the need to keep labor costs and build times low, has made them an ideal solution. Likewise, the advantages offered by Wood's Powr-Grip's vacuum lifting equipment have had a similar impact when working with IMP's.

WPG’s vacuum lifters eliminate the need for damaging bolts and slings when installing wall and roofing panels. And by leaving the panel edges free, they make placement easier - all while saving labor.
