Whether you’re a glazier, glass installer or facade specialist, we have a vacuum lifter solution for just about any project – no matter how big or small. Hiring a vacuum lifter for your project will maximise your productivity and reduce your risk of workplace injuries.

We even have solutions for compact high-rise projects that are far more cost-effective than hiring a large crane. Optimise your logistics by placing the glass on each floor during the construction process, then simply install the glass from the inside of the building.

Contact our expert team today to discuss your vacuum lifter hire requirements and request a free demonstration.
