Righetti vacuum lifters provide a safer, more productive method of lifting and handling insulated roofing and cladding panels.

Designed specifically for the roofing and cladding industry.

Key Benefits of using Cladding lifter equipment:

  • Faster installation – less time on site can help save money and help other contractors.
  • Fewer operatives – enabling workers to be assigned to alternative projects.
  • Improved safety – the vacuum lifter has a firm grip of the load, can monitor load safety and dual vacuum circuits help guarantee load holding.
  • Reduced fatigue and fewer injuries as workers don’t need to do the heavy lifting or difficulty tilting of insulated cladding panels.
