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.

The WILJA® Lifting Inserts are permanently cast into both the inner and outer panels of sandwich walls, utilizing their own anchoring rebars for secure attachment. They are positioned perpendicular to the wall panels, allowing for angular pull, with a maximum permitted load angle of 45°.

WILJA® Lifting Inserts are made of stainless steel and are therefore particularly well-suited for lifting facade sandwich elements, eliminating any risk of rust marks. Their design also eliminates the need for any system-specific lifting keys, as the lifting slings can be directly attached to the WILJA® Insert. This streamlined process ensures that the lifting procedure is quick and straightforward.

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.
