Edge-Lifting Systems for Factory-Cast Panels
The EdjPro system was specifically developed to eliminate cracking and spalling around edge anchors. It is ideal for lifting thin factory cast panels where a high finish is required, typically visible and exterior walls.
The Ancon range of EdjPro Lifting Systems comprises EdjPro EPA03 and EdjPro Narrow.
Both systems include anchors, clutches and recess formers and ensure panels remain in their perfect factory-cast condition during transport and installation, avoiding remedial work and lowering overall costs.
EdjPro EPA03 is an innovative and fast lifting system specifically designed for the safe handling of thin factory-cast panels from 100mm thickness. The system is ideal for step-joint panels and can lift up to 3 tonnes WLL when used with a 12mm tension bar.

The EdjPro Narrow has all the benefits of the established EdjPro system with a narrower anchor and recess for thin panels from 120mm. EdjPro Narrow can lift up to 8 tonnes WLL when used with a 20mm tension bar.
EdjPro Narrow Anchors (PDF, 6.51 MB)
Two Narrow Anchor types are available to provide the most efficient and economical solution for edge-lifting thin panels, giving maximum anchorage without overstressing the concrete. Both Narrow Anchors are suitable for standard panels and step-joint (shiplap) panels. Featuring a reduced head width of 70mm, the anchors perfect for thin panels.
The clutch is designed to provide clearance between the figure-8 link and the concrete at all sling angles to protect against edge contact cracking. The Narrow Clutch can be used with standard EdjPro 8 tonne anchors when lifting in tension e.g. transport and erection.
Narrow Recess Former
Featuring a slender design, perfect for thin panels, the recess former is used to accurately and reliably set the anchor into the concrete product. Suitable for both anchor types, the recess former creates a gap between the anchor and the concrete, preventing damage from bearing pressure and protecting the fragile panel edge.
