Wood's Powr-Grip Vacuum Cups & Vacuum Lifters for Installing Metal Panels, Siding, Roofing & Cladding. There are a variety of choices when it comes to lifting, maneuvering and installing insulated metal panels and related cladding materials, but few have as many benefits as vacuum-attaching products from Wood's Powr-Grip®.

  • Ergonomically designed to reduce worker fatigue and related injuries.
  • Quick attachment and release to increase productivity.
  • No wrestling with slings or hooks that can damage panels and slow installation.
  • Attach directly to the face of the panel, keeping edges free for exact panel placement.
  • Vacuum pads will not slip or damage the surface of panels.
Whether you are installing composite panels, cold storage panels, siding or roofing panels, Wood's Powr-Grip makes your job faster and easier with a broad range of WPG hand-held vacuum cups and below-the-hook vacuum lifters.
