Solar Panel Handling

The increasing popularity of solar panels presents a new challenge to manufacturers and installers alike. That's why Wood's Powr-Grip® is pleased to offer a selection of hand-held vacuum cups and below-the-hook vacuum lifters that are designed to make handling solar panels more efficient, ergonomic and safe. WPG products utilize the power of vacuum to lift, maneuver and transport solar panels and related products. Unlike traditional handling methods, Powr-Grip's vacuum attaching equipment provides a convenient and secure way to move solar panels, with little risk of damage or injury:

  • Flexible rubber vacuum pads used in WPG products attach securely to the materials, without harming most surfaces
  • A red-line indicator or available Audio Alarm on Powr-Grip hand cups alerts the user of any significant vacuum loss.
  • Vacuum gauges with colored zones on WPG vacuum lifters clearly indicate whether vacuum is sufficient for lifting.
  • Indicator lights and warning buzzers signal when a Powr-Grip vacuum lifter is ready to move the load.

Whether you are handling materials to manufacture solar panels in the factory, retrofitting homes with solar panels, or installing solar systems in new buildings, Wood's Powr-Grip makes handling solar panels easier and safer.
