Palamatic recently supplied two door blank lifting systems to Wulf Protective, based in Bradford.

The company management team have 30 years experience within the Fire Door and Construction industries.

A Palamatic Vacuum Tube Lifter uses a single power medium – vacuum, to grip and lift heavy or awkward loads. An electrical vacuum pump (or vacuum ejector pump) creates a vacuum level when a suction pad or gripping device is placed on an object load. The resulting low pressure makes the tube contract vertically and the object load is lifted. The operator controls the vacuum flow using a simple, finger touch operating valve, making the work physically easier and safer. Increasing the vacuum draws air out of the tube and the load is lifted.

Sohan Panesar, Managing Director explained their business strategy. “Established during the COVID-19 Pandemic, Wulf is made up of a diverse bunch. We pull together the very best of our range of experience to bring you the highest standard of end-to-end service possible. We are committed to becoming the leading manufacturer of both high-quality doors and door sets”.
