THE NEW TECH INNOVATION ALL INSTALLERS ARE AFTER
Tech start-up Augmented Reality Creations ( ARC ) has launched a ground-breaking technological innovation that ’ s already set to be a game changer for the conservatory market .
Taking care of glass lifting with CRL
Handle with care is always a requirement of lifting such a fragile material as glass , and with CRL it can be carried out with ease , thanks to a comprehensive range of products and solutions .
Highlights of the range include the CRL S338 Sure-Grip Vacuum Lifter , boasting the greatest lifting capacity of any 203mm pump-activated lifter . Featuring a superior ‘ press and pump ’ attachment feature , the lifter gives a secure grip even when used one-handed and has an unrivalled lifting capacity of 68kg .
CRL Wood ’ s Power-Grip ® Vacuum Cup is similarly as effective at making glass lifting simple and safe . The 203mm diameter pad has a 57 kg lifting capacity , while the check valve allows re-pumping without any loss of remaining vacuum , maximising efficiency when working with glass .
Making the manoeuvre of large glass panels simple too , the CRL Glasstrax Glass Dolly has a clever self-clamping action that
locks loads up to 50.8 mm thick . It means that one person can load and move glass , with safe and stable transportation of capacities up to 275kg .
Finally , the CRL All Terrain Dolly goes where other glass dollies won ’ t , making it ideal for moving heavy glass panels around the job site . The built-In 203 mm Wood ’ s™ Power-Grip ® Vacuum Cup and set of CRL RB200 Roller Blocks make it easy to transport up to 181kg loads with ease .

Using state-of-the-art augmented reality technology , ARCDesign is a webbased conservatory designer and visualisation tool that sees installers give control to their customers via their website , allowing their hard-earned web traffic to design , visualise and explore their dream conservatory .
With ARCDesign , potential customers can design their dream conservatory , choosing their preferred style , shape , and materials , as well as doors , windows , roof , and any other decorative extras .
Once they ’ ve finalised their design , customers have two choices – they can either submit their design to the installer to get an informed quote , or they can use the innovative augmented reality software of ARCDesign to project a virtual , explorable , life-size 3D model of their conservatory onto their home via a smartphone , allowing them to visualise and explore where it would end up in real life .
ARC COO and Co-Founder Andrew Clear comments : “ The innovative software is guaranteed to increase engagement with an installer ’ s website , while also boosting conversion rates , trust and brand reputation .
