Working Load Limit (WLL) Values for the BasicLift™ Magnets are stated at 50% of the actual value. We recommend when lifting sheets over 8', use 2 or more lifts on a spreader bar to prevent sheet flexing, sagging or peel-off. Thin material is susceptible to magnetic bleed through, resulting in two sheets being lifted at once. Round WLL Values are based on ideal conditions. Consult the factory before specifying these magnets for use on round materials. *Max. sheet lengths are selected due to sag characteristics of specified sheet. The item to be lifted must cover the entire length and width of the magnetic poles and roller cam to properly engage and release the part.

Note: Never stand under load being lifted. Always use extra caution. Only use magnetic lifts on material that does not flex or bend. The surface of the lift, and the load being lifted, need to be clean and free of chips, oil, slag, dirt, etc. Lifting magnets must be centered on load. Not recommended for painted or finish coated surfaces.
