As architects become more adventurous and push the boundaries of both structural glazing and architectural glazing, glass lifting has become unimaginable without some heavy artillery.
As a result, the Smartlift SL 408 glazing robot has quickly become one of the most popular choices for glazing professionals. Not only can it lift up to 430kg, but it is also nimble and can be used for both indoor and outdoor glass installations.
Smartlift haven’t rested on their laurels with a strong performing model, they have recently engaged with window/bi-fold fitters, glass/window manufacturers, shopfront and façade specialists to look at how they can improve its versatility. The result is three new derivatives to add to the existing SL 408 Outdoor and SL 408 Outdoor High Lifter line up:
- SL408 HL RT (High Lifter with Electric Rotating Yolk) – Rotating yolk is operated from the remote control electronically with millimetre precision movements.
- SL408 HLE (High Lifter with Motorised Boom) – All telescopic movements are operated from the remote control electronically with millimetre precision movements.
- SL408 HLE RT (High Lifter with Motorised Boom & Electric Rotating Head) – Combining all the above to give effortless glass lifting!
