Heavydrive pane replacement with counterweight traverse in Luxembourg
At the Cloche d’Or Experience in Luxembourg, Heavydrive replaced four panes measuring 2.5m x 2.5m. The 400kg window elements had to be placed 12 floors up under an almost 3m deep overhang.
The Heavydrive VSG 1500 counterweight traverse, attached to a truck-mounted crane, and the VSG 1000 K MH vacuum suction system, which was connected to the fixed SWS Heavydrive adapter with the counterweight traverse, were used to raise the panes to the right height and guide them under the overhang and over the balcony railings into the window opening. The counterweight traverse offsets the weight of the heavy panes and enables them to be assembled safely and accurately.
The project with Heavydrive’s assembly devices in Luxembourg will continue at the beginning of 2021.
