WILJA® Lifting Insert — Stainless steel lifting insert for sandwich elements

The WILJA® Lifting Insert is designed for lifting and transporting precast sandwich wall elements. It is a CE marked, efficient and ready-to-use solution. WILJA® Lifting Inserts have five different load classes and are available for several insulation thicknesses.

WILJA® Lifting Inserts are permanently cast into the inner and outer panels of sandwich walls, and the anchoring is based on the inserts’ own anchoring rebars. They are assembled perpendicularly to the wall panels and angular pull, with a maximum permitted load angle of 45°.

WILJA® Lifting Inserts are made of stainless steel, which makes them the perfect choice for the outer panels of sandwich walls. They are an efficient solution where no system specific lifting keys are needed as the lifting slings can be attached straight to the WILJA® Insert which ensures the lifting procedure is a quick and easy process.

WILJA® Lifting Inserts comply with MD 2006/42/EC and VDI BV-BS 6205. These guidelines represent the most up to date and state of the art processes in this field.

WILJA® Lifting Insert

CE marked WILJA® will replace PNLF Lifting Insert.


The capacities have changed according to the results received from concrete tests. For straight pull using a beam it has increased and for diagonal pull lifting cases it has decreased. Please check the load case carefully and ensure the needed capacity and any needed additional reinforcement is installed.
