Lifting solutions

We have developed a patent applied for lifting clamp for the safe, easy installation of our Europanel, Rockspan, Firemaster and Rainspan range of composite cladding panels, when laid horizontally.

The combined SWL of a pair of clamps is 500kg; so a pair can safely lift the longest composite panels that Eurobond currently supply. The clamps work by gripping the flanges on the top of the panel by means of a cam and wedge mechanism. A half turn of the actuating lever is all that is required to lock the clamp onto the composite cladding panel.

Safety features include a spring loaded pin that holds the cam in the locked position, a mechanism that tightens the grip on the composite cladding panel during lifting and in the unlikely event that there is a failure of the composite panel or the clamp, a set of safety strops are included to prevent the insulated composite panel from falling.


The Benefits of Mechanical Handling Techniques

  • Increased productivity - realistic installation of up to 2000m2 of composite panel a day
  • Full compliance with H&S and CITB due to the removal of manual handling on site
  • Time savings - being able to install 2000m2 of insulated composite panel a day allows for earlier project completion, meaning contractors are able to complete more projects in a year
  • Significant labour cost savings are provided, through reduced labour and faster completion on site
  • Reduced damage to composite cladding panels on site
