Overhang Beams

Lifting beneath soffits or overhangs can be difficult without the right equipment, our counterbalanced lifting beams can be controlled remotely and are the ideal solution where a heavy load needs to be lifted below an overhang.



Capacity 800kg

Counterweight balancers combined with vacuum lifters serve for safely and ergonomically installing glasses or window elements in difficult to access areas; such as under canopies, balconies, eaves etc. The vacuum lifter can directly be connected to the counterweight balancer with an interchangeable adapter or alternatively, it can be mounted to the load hook of the counterweight balancer while maintaining the rotating and tilting function. It is important that the Release function of the vacuum lifter is coupled electrically to the position of the travelling cage of the counterweight balancer.In this way it can be ensured that the counterweight balancer remains in a neutral, balanced position after performing the command Release of the suctioned load. The OKTOPUS® GL - RN 400 / 600 / 800 vacuum lifting devices can optionally be equipped with a function that controls the travelling cage of the counterweight balancer.
