Vacuum Cups & Vacuum Lifters for Curtainwall InstallationThe installation of curtainwalls has long been a challenge to designers, architects and glaziers alike. For decades, Wood's Powr-Grip® has been making it easier and less dangerous to install curtainwalls with hand-held vacuum cups, below-the-hook vacuum lifters and other installation products. Today, WPG continues to make installation of curtainwalls more efficient, ergonomic and secure through innovative engineering.

  • 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.
  • A Dual Vacuum System is available on many Powr-Grip vacuum lifters, to reduce the risk of falling glass.
  • Indicator lights and warning buzzers also signal when a vacuum lifter is ready to move curtainwall components.
Whether you are loading curtainwall components for transport to the job site, installing curtainwall sections, or constructing curtainwalls in multi-story buildings, Wood's Powr-Grip makes the process of installing curtainwalls easier and safer.
