Aerolift – Concrete Lifting Solutions
Aerolift designs custom made precast concrete lifting solutions for many situations. During production, storage, internal transport, storage, transhipment, and construction. Precast concrete elements are ideally suited for lifting by vacuum technology. Vacuum lifting technology offers unique benefits compared to other concrete lifting methods.
Demoulding of concrete without damage
Thanks to the unique properties of vacuum handling, it is possible to demould, lift and turn precast concrete products all in one operation. Moreover, no embedded hoist facilities are required, and the surface is not deformed in any way. The load remains fully intact, without disassembling or destroying the mould. Also, due to the divided surface pressure of a suction pad the curing time of the precast concrete before demoulding is considerably shortened. Instead of at least 24 hours, demoulding is possible after 8 till 10 hours! After removing the concrete product from the mould, you can turn the product and store it either horizontally or vertically. Regardless of its shape and weight.
Accelerate the hardening process of your precast concrete
By using a vacuum lifter, the curing time of your product will be shortened tremendously. Would you like to shorten the curing time even further? We offer a low-pressure steam generator to accelerate the hardening process even further.
Concrete lifting solutions with vacuum technology
Besides the advantages during demoulding, vacuum technology offers yet more advantages for concrete lifting solutions:
- No additional costs, because no embeds are needed;
- Less manpower, because no embeds need to be installed or removed;
- Handling goes faster;
- Less chance of damage during handling;
- Less chance of cracks in the concrete material;
- Reduced chance of accidents, because no one has to be near the load before, during or after handling;
- More safe due to an alarm system and hang-on time;
- Efficient use of storage space.
A concrete vacuum lifter is especially suited to processes of a repetitive nature. Think of the production, storage, transhipment and construction of floors, walls, staircases, sleepers, pipes, concrete piles, retaining walls, tunnel elements and tanks. The scope is endless.

Safe assembly of heavy loads
Aerolift concrete vacuum lifters are frequently used in large-scale construction projects. Housing construction, industrial construction, tunnel construction and stadium building are some examples. A major advantage is that no embedded hoist facilities are required. With no risk of damaging the load, the concrete element can simply be placed into position. What’s more, you can use a vacuum lifter on different locations during the construction process.
