Learn What Makes Wood’s Powr-Grip Vacuum Cups the Go-To Tool

A Staple in the Glass Industry for Over 50 Years

Wood’s Powr-Grip Vacuum Cups were designed specifically for glass handling and have been the go-to tool of the glass industry and glaziers around the world. These pump style vacuum cups, allow the user to “put a handle” where they need it, when they need it on: flat glass, curved/bent glass, auto glass, pattern glass, stone or any nonporous material. Unlike regular suction cups, Wood’s Powr-Grip Vacuum Cups have the ability to create a more reliable hold. They also have the ability to be used on glasses of almost any thickness with little risk of damage, due to the full face of the vacuum pad creating contact with the glass. The release of the material being handled is quick and easy, with no “after-stick” or residue left behind.

The new tile floor is installed, cabinets are hung, and now there is only one more hurdle before the office lounge is fully renovated. Unfortunately, that last hurdle happens to be the one that you’ve been dreading since the beginning. Staring you and your workers in the face is a 8′ x 4′, 420 lbs. slate of granite. Your workers stand around looking at each other thinking,  how are we going to move this? Will my back hold up lifting this weight? What if we lose grip and smash the new tile floor?
