Emu 1000 [1000kg] glazing robot hire      

The EMU glazing robot, available to hire from GGR, is specifically designed for interior use when craneage or scaffolding  is too costly, impractical or impossible. 

Recognised by the Design Council and awarded the Construction News Quality in Construction Award, the EMU lifter’s unique manipulating head enables ‘inside-out’ glazing. 

The Emu glazing robot can angle and push a unit outside the envelope, realign it and then pull it back into position for fixing.  In addition, the hire glazing robot has an on-board drive system that provides the mobility to access tight interior areas.
