Heavydrive® has secured a foothold in this sector for many years thanks to its customised installation and transport solutions for any construction site situation anywhere in the world. The main reason for this is not only our large rental park but also the numerous services we offer to our clients tailored especially to their needs:
Heavydrive rents and sells indoor and outdoor lifting and transportation solutions and attachments for heavy loads in the glass assembly sector.
We have high-quality products from leading manufacturers worldwide available, such as assembly cranes, mini crawler cranes from Meada and Unic, vacuum suction systems with up to 10,000kg load capacity, hand suction plates that take up to 150kg, assembly lifts with a lifting height of up to 7.9m, automatic cranes, aluminium mast cranes, telescopic forklifts, hydraulic lifts, track systems for façade assembly, chain lifts that lift up to 30m, and stair climbers, to name but a few of the devices in our range.
You can also buy from us the original: patented and highly stable glass transport wagon!
The MRK mini crawler crane innovations are real all-rounders! Many of our assembly crane innovations were developed especially to meet particular demands in the glass and façade assembly sector. Their compact design allows them to be used in hard-to-access places, and their light weight and electric motor option mean they can be used both indoors and outdoors. The special overhead manipulator cranes are designed to withstand the weight of extremely heavy glass panes, even at great heights. Our product portfolio has the right assembly crane for your needs.
We have a comprehensive range of vacuum suction systems that guarantee secure transportation and assembly in glazing and façade manufacturing. The vacuum lifting devices are suitable for indoor and outdoor use and can be used for flat glass (the most powerful system has a lifting capacity of up to 10 tonnes), as well as curved, wavy and coated panes and glass fins, but can also be optimised for porous surfaces like stone or panels. Ask us about your operation today – we would be happy to give you advice!
Our glass assembly equipment lifts and fits windows and panes of up to 780kg to the millimetre, even overhead, and are built narrowly so that they can fit through doors and move down corridors. Using the battery-operated pane setter is a foolproof way to avoid awkward and heavy manual lifting. Remote control allows you to ensure the self-driver is always under control.
Our original Heavydrive glass transport wagons are easily collapsible and can be assembled again using only a few grips. Our special heavy load models with a lifting capacity of up to 1,000kg are secure due to a low centre of gravity, they guarantee optimal anti-slip security and can be adapted to different pane sizes. The new “AIR” product line uses pneumatic tyres for highly shock-absorbing transportation and is suitable for all terrain, including moving over paved surfaces. We have developed and manufactured these wagons and can manufacture custom requests to meet your demands!
