Architects and builders like to dream big, so the glass they use is getting bigger too.
In just the last ten years, we’ve seen glass panes weighing 2,000 lbs up to over 4,000 lbs!
For glass this big, you’re going to need several things for a successful install:
- Large, reliable vacuum lifters. Safely lifting heavy glass is the name of the game.
- Long-term planning. Larger lifters mean longer lead times. Building these machines takes time!
- Flexible options. Companies regularly taking on huge construction projects are best off buying a large lifter.
For others, leasing is quicker and more efficient.
