The Nemo GRABO can grab all manner of materials.

Using the Nemo GRABO benefits any industry that requires the lifting and moving of large or heavy objects. Movers shifting wooden furniture, Pavers working with heavy stone, Tilers making tiling more efficient, to Glaziers fitting windows.

These are the materials the Nemo GRABO can work with:

  • Glass. The GRABO is perfect for a glazier.
  • Laminated cardboard.
  • Plastics of all types.
  • Wood, both rough and smooth.
  • Metals. The GRABO sees no challenge in picking up metal with diamond plate or other uneven patterned surfaces.
  • Tiles, smooth and patterned/uneven surfaces.
  • GRABO works great with concrete, paving stones, granite and other less porous stones.
  • Dry Wall.


How Much Can the Nemo GRABO lift?

The maximum weight a Nemo GRABO can hold depends on two things.

The way you are carrying the material.

They type of material you are carrying.

There are two ways you can use the Nemo GRABO to carry material.

Different shapes and sizes of items will need a different approach, so the GRABO is designed to give you a firm and safe hold from both angles.

You also need to consider the weight of what you’re lifting to use the GRABO safely. This chart provides you with the safe guidelines for carrying the main materials you will find yourself using with GRABO technology.


NOTICE: Due to the high pressure that is created with GRABO we strongly recommend that you do not attempt to attach GRABO to glass thinner than 6mm thick. Damage can occur to glass that is thinner than 6mm thick.
