Swift Lift System
Used by Ocean Pipe on most precast products, the Swift Lift System is a connect/disconnect system allowing precast concrete elements to be handled quickly, repeatedly and safely. Swift Lift pins are cast into our products at the time of manufacture. Installers will need to have the appropriate Swift Lifting Eyes (clutches) on site. Depending on the product, four ton or eight ton lifting eyes will be required. Swift Lifting Eyes are available for purchase from Ocean Pipe. Please contact our sales office for pricing.
