The Winlet difference

Winlet vacuum robots and ErgoMover powered transport trolleys are world beating brands designed with one purpose in mind – to make construction easier. They are made by GMV Cranes and Handling in Denmark, an award-winning company with more than 30 years of experience in manufacturing lifting equipment.

The GMV vision

This is what drives the Winlet advantage.

GMV must be at the cutting edge of market needs and match these needs by developing unique technical solutions which aid heavy manual lifting with modern industrial design.

Precision and power

All load movement using Winlet glazing robots is hydraulically actuated, providing fast, powerful and reliable operation on any worksite.

Winlet products are designed to provide millimetre-accurate glass placement, with 100% linear horizontal and vertical control of loads.

This precision is at the heart of the Winlet advantage. It allows users to install large glass panels at height with confidence, with maximum productivity and minimised risk of breakage.

Avoid manual lifting

All Winlet glazing robots use advanced vacuum technology that can be controlled by one operator from a remote control unit.

This greatly reduces manual handling, improving safety, speeding up glass installation and reducing glass installation costs.

Compact and strong

Winlet glazing robots are built to withstand any challenge on a construction site. They are compact enough to be transported in small lifts and to be operated in the most confined spaces.

Not just for glass installation

By changing the suction cups Winlet vacuum robots can be used to lift a wide range of other airtight materials, including:

  • Granite
  • Glass reinforced concrete (GRP)
  • Plasterboard
  • Steel sheets
  • Wooden boards
  • Plastic
  • Tiled sections
  • Fire doors

ErgoMover – different use, same principles

ErgoMover powered material trolleys are designed and manufactured with the same purpose in mind.

A design focussed on achieving an important objective – safe and quick movement of heavy and bulky construction materials.

Combined with quality manufacturing that creates a robust and reliable machine that is easy to use.
