The Express 150 is designed to allow a glaziers to unload, transport and install large plates of glass. It has a lifting capacity of 150 Kg’s (330 Lbs). It can rotate glass measuring up to 3000 mm (120″). It has adjustments to allow for side and top pocket glazing.
Handling glass plates and windows can be a back breaker due to the weight and dimension of the plates and the uneven grounds of construction sites. The methods to deliver plates haven’t changed in decades even with windows now getting heavier and larger.
Quattrolifts has released the Express 150, an innovative small portable lifter that allows one man to move plates weighing up 80 Kg's (180 Lbs) or two men up to 150 Kg's (330 Lbs). The Express 150 is loaded onto a truck in two 15 Kg (33 Lbs) parts and easily assembled in under a minute.
Once assembled the Express 150 can unload plates off the truck and then transport the plates and windows on site. The large 330 mm (13") pneumatic wheels allow for travelling over rough grounds on construction sites. The wheelbase can be adjusted from 54 cm (21") to 80 cm (31") allowing for narrow walkways on-site.
Two terrific features of the Express 150 allow the lite or window to be rotated 360 degrees and secondly the operator can also index the lite allowing him to move through standard 90 cm (35") wide doorways.
Harry Richardson from Ultimate Glass was impressed when using the Express 150 to transport a 100 Kg's (220 Lbs) IGU on his own: “In these tough times, the Express 150 allows me to do more work with less people and with greater safety. I’m going to use the Express 150 to install balustrading with just two operators. Each plate weighs about 80 Kg's (180 Lbs) to 100 Kg's (220 Lbs).”
