At Oktopus Australia we provide sales and service for the complete line of panel lifters including roofing and composite wall panel lifting machines. One of our most popular models is the GI-B400. Flexibility couples with large capacity to make this unit a true work horse. It can work well for both vertical and horizontal installation applications. It is typically used as a forklift attachment while its operation is independent of the host vehicle. It is powered by its own 24 volt battery power supply and can see use up to 10 hours between recharging the batteries.
While all of our equipment meets commercial safety standards, careful operation by well trained operators is always recommended. It is important to make sure that the construction elements need to have an air tight seal around the suction areas and it is important to make sure there are no protective films on the surface of the panels you are working with. All Oktopus equipment incorporates a high tech safety system that is able to continuously track or measure the vacuum circuit as well as the power supply to make sure there is no impending breakdown in the suction connection. In addition to the safety management system there is also a large reserve of vacuum in case of an unexpected loss of power. For handling any type of roof/wall panels, we can help size the right cladding equipment and handling devices to ensure that your employees will be able to work in a safe and efficient environment.
