Kennards Hire Lift & Shift is making building sites safer with the addition of a new range of vacuum glass lifters from OKTOPUS designed to raise the industry benchmark in safety.

OKTOPUS offers a range of class-leading compact vacuum lifters designed to carry and place glass into window frames.

There are several safety hazards associated with installing glass panels weighing hundreds of kilograms on high-rise buildings. Until recently, 12v vacuum lifters with single pumps were used to install these heavy panels with the installer relying on that one vacuum not to fail during the lift.

Given the demand for safer machinery at building sites, Kennards Hire Lift & Shift has introduced the OKTOPUS range of dual vacuum glass lifters to their equipment hire range. Key features of the OKTOPUS range include two independent vacuum circuits offering fail-safe operation; all lifters equipped with a crane arm and an audio-visual low vacuum alert; and compact and universal design, suitable for every construction site.

The dual-vac lifters available from Kennards Hire Lift & Shift are safer than the single-vac machines, and will eliminate the possibility of on-site accidents.

Kennards Hire Lift & Shift has rolled out the OKTOPUS glass lifting range for hire across all specialist branches Australia-wide, helping create a safer and more efficient working environment.

The OKTOPUS glass lifting range is available in load capacities of 300kg, 600kg and 1000kg.
