Express 150

The Express 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 upto 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, an innovative small portable lifter that allows one man to move plates weighing up 80kg or two men up to 150kg. The Express is loaded onto a truck in two 15kg parts and easily assembled in under a minute.

Once assembled the Express can unload plates off the truck and then transport the plates and windows on site. The large 330mm pneumatic wheels allow for travelling over rough grounds on construction sites. The wheelbase can be adjusted from 54 cm to 80cm allowing for narrow walkways on-site.

Two terrific features of the Express 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 90cm wide doorways.

Harry Richardson from Ultimate Glass was impressed when using the Express to transport a 100kg IGU on his own: “In these tough times, the Express allows me to do more work with less people and with greater safety. I’m going to use the Express to install balustrading with just two operators. Each plate weighs about 80 to 100kg.”

Company details

Ricardo Carlei, the inventor of the Quattrolifts range of products is a chiropractor and runs his own health and safety consultancy, Quantum Workhealth Programmeswhich specialises in minimising occupational manual handling risks.Through his extensive work with some glass manufacturers and glazing businesses such as Pilkington, he became aware of the risks and injuries associated with the manual handling of glass.

As a result of identifying this problem, Ricardo established Quattrolifts with the objective to develop mechanical devices that would reduce the risk of injury while handling heavy glass.

Discussions with glaziers led to the design and development of Quattrolifts' first product called the Nomad, afterwhich multiple accessories were developed to further assist glaziers handle heavy glass. To great acclaim, Quattrolifts released their new glass handling machine called the Mule at the 2007 GlassBuild Trade Show in Atlanta Georgia USA.
