Vacuum Cups, Vacuum Lifters and Other Equipment for Transporting Glass & Windows on the Job SiteThe transportation of windows and other glass products has long been a challenge to designers, architects and glaziers alike. Since 1964, Wood's Powr-Grip® has been facilitating glass transport on the job site with hand-held vacuum cups, below-the-hook vacuum lifters and other transportaion equipment. Today, WPG continues to make glass transportation 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.
  • The All-Terrain Dolly, and Ace Dolly take the weight off workers for transporting glass products on site.
  • Indicator lights and warning buzzers signal when a vacuum lifter is ready to move glass.
  • Vacuum gauges with colored zones on WPG vacuum lifters clearly indicate whether vacuum is sufficient for lifting.
Whether you are loading glass for transport to the job site, moving windows and doors on location, or lifting insulating glass units into multi-story buildings, Wood's Powr-Grip makes the process of transporting glass products easier and safer.
