Door handling

Door handling

Lifting doors can be complex: they are sometimes very large, heavy and have no handle or hook for easy handling. However, many companies are confronted with this concern, as is the case in the wood, building or glazing sector. To help manufacturers and builders in the handling of doors, Manut-LM manufactures in France solutions to help manual handling by lifting tube. These solutions allow a single operator to carry and move doors weighing up to 300 kg, resulting in increased productivity while avoiding MSDs, without damaging the load.

Manut-LM manufactures tailor-made products according to the specific needs of each customer and their production process: lifting and depositing at height, tilting doors, handling of filmed doors, etc.

Manut-LM exports its door handling solutions

Door handling poses problems of arduousness when carrying loads and safety, both for the operator and for the material transported.
The advantage of Manut-LM vacuum handling solutions is that productivity is enhanced thanks to this very flexible manipulator. The arduousness is eliminated for the operator, who then becomes independent at his workstation.
In the case of this video, it is in Estonia that we have implemented the MASTER Plus panel manipulator!

Door handling

Manut-LM knows how to respond to specific business issues, such as lifting and moving doors that have been filmed to be protected from external shocks.
Door handling is tricky because the surface is smooth and has no grip to help the operator grip the doors, especially when they are filmed. A conventional vacuum system would only suck the protective film from the door.
To remedy this problem, the Manut-LM design office has developed a lifting tube manipulator solution and added tips to the suction cups. This evolution makes it possible to pierce the plastic film without damaging the load, thus making it possible to achieve the air suction necessary for handling film doors.

Options tailored to your needs

Manut-LM is committed to offering you solutions that meet your needs as much as possible and that combine ergonomics and productivity.
The MASTER Plus tilting option helps the operator to rotate the door around an 80 ° axis. A single operator can then do alone an action that would require several people without the tipper option.
The function of the automatic ascent is to automatically raise the manipulator, after releasing the load, and allows the doors to be placed / removed easily and safely, on all types of planes. This option provides flexibility to the operator.

Handling of wooden doors

The handling of wooden doors is a complex operation. The irregular surface of a door, the porous aspect of certain woods, its density and its weight make it a source of loss of productivity and occupational diseases.
A 40 kg door must be handled by two operators adopting non-ergonomic positions. Your operators therefore need tools that allow them to improve their productivity. The lifting tube handling assistance solutions developed by Manut-LM prevent MSDs, reduce sick leave and work stoppages, common in the wood sector. This tool will be all the more appreciated if it can allow them to avoid hurting themselves or suffering from back pain.

Handling of glass doors

The handling of glass doors is dangerous and perilous because the windows are fragile. They can break, and must therefore be handled by several operators, leading to a loss of productivity as well as a danger for the employees.
Manut-LM has developed a handling solution for picking up and tilting doors or bay windows without endangering the operator and without risking damage to the window.
The vacuum manipulator provides flexibility to the employee, who can then pivot, put down and pick up the door easily. The suction cups have been designed to leave no trace of adhesion on the windows. If your request is specific, do not hesitate to contact us to obtain a personalized plan by our design office.
