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.
Use of the EdjPro system will ensure panels remain in their perfect factory-cast condition, avoiding remedial work and lowering overall costs.
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, 4.66 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.
- Anchor code, WLL and batch number are clearly visible when cast into concrete
- Complies with the requirements of NZ ACOP: 2002
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.
EdjPro Lifting Torus
The EdjPro system is available without the lifting handle for use with a hammerlock device.
The EdjPro system can also be supplied for remote release.
EdjPro EzyTurn Clutch
The EzyTurn clutch has an extended handle and is the ideal solution for use in ship lap panels where the position of the anchor could not be reached by a standard EdjPro clutch.
‘Hairpin’ anchors are the most efficient and economical type for edge-lifting thin panels as they provide maximum anchorage without overstressing the concrete.
EdjPro Recess Formers
This recess former is used to accurately and reliably set the anchor into the concrete product. It creates a gap between the anchor and the concrete, preventing damage from bearing pressure and protecting the fragile panel edge.
