Stone vacuum lifters are ideal machines for lifting stone and other materials safely and effectively.
Hird can offer stone vacuum lifter hire options to suit all needs – and for April’s Product of the Month we are showcasing the SK1000.
Just like the glass vacuum lifters that Hird has a national reputation for providing, stone vacuum lifters significantly reduce manual handling and improve productivity.
When combined with other lifting equipment Hird can offer, including spider cranes or pick and carry mini cranes, they deliver safe lifting in confined spaces.
SK1000 stone vacuum lifter – safe and effective
The SK1000 stone vacuum lifter can lift stone slabs or sheets weighing up to 1,000kg. It is designed to lift both porous and non-porous stone. Other materials it can handle include drywall construction panels, plaster board, structural insulated panels (SIPs) and metal slabs or sheets. With a pad measuring 1000mm by 450mm, it can safely lift both porous and polished stone.
The SK1000 stone vacuum lifter has a constant running vacuum system and closed-cell foam pad design. This means it can also lift materials with irregular and textured stone surfaces. It also has an audio-visual low vacuum alarm to ensure materials are always lifted safely.
Lifting power for 21st Century building environments
The SK1000 stone vacuum lifter is perfectly suited to modern architectural and construction techniques. Stone cladding of buildings, especially in high-value develops in places like central London, has become increasingly common. Contractors are demanding stone lifting solutions that are safe, flexible and cost effective – and that integrate well with demanding construction schedules.
The SK1000 stone lifter, combined with other lifting hire options from Hird, such as a mini crane, a spider crane or a counterbalance materials lift, like our new GML 800+, meet those specifications perfectly.
Flexible, sustainable and productive stone lifting
Then SK1000 stone vacuum lifter enables our customers to lift materials safely and productively.Minimised manual handling reduces the risk of injury and damage to the load or surrounding structures.Productivity is improved because it requires smaller lifting teams.When combined with a pick and carry compact crane, the vacuum lifter can be used just as easily to pick and carry stone slabs in live environments.
This makes it an ideal stone lifter hire option for use by facilities management contractors to repair or replace stone and other materials. The SK1000 is a sustainable stone lifting device, and when combined with an electric mini crane, can be used in both internal and external environments.
