The benefits of having a prototype built

“Building a prototype eased our concerns and allowed us to see the product before placing a large order”

mobile work station trolleyWe were recently asked to visit a large distribution centre that processes thousands of on-line orders every day. For the site, the increase of orders meant the current system of picking and packing wasn’t as efficient as it once was. The volume had meant the operatives were having to reload shopping trolleys and walking back and forth to collect the packaging materials to get the items ready for dispatch and this plainly wasn’t ideal because of the time wasted.

Stanchion Truck

The perfect answer for moving awkward loads

stanchion truckOur latest bespoke trucks certainly went down a real treat and delighted our customer in helping them overcome the problem of moving long sections of steel tube and steel bar within the factory floor in Harlow, Essex. Struggling to keep up with the constant moving of large and bulky timber pallets lying around taking up precious floor space, onto which the stock was kept. The introduction of the stanchion trucks has totally revamped and revitalised the production area making the site much more time efficient and a safer place to work.

Order Picking Trolley Versus Ladder

Which to choose and when

order picking trolleyLet us be very clear first of all, order picking trolleys and ladders are both a sensible and practical option for low risk and for short duration tasks when working at height. The law says ladders can be used for working at height when a risk assessment has shown that using equipment offering a higher level of fall projection is not justified because of a low risk and short duration of use or there are existing workplace features which cannot be altered. As a quick guide, if your task will require staying up a ladder or step ladder for 30 minutes at a time, it is be recommended that you use alternative equipment.

Safety Bollards

Protect staff and premises

safety bollardI can still recall the words spoken to me by my driving instructor on my very first driving lesson 26 years ago. “A car in the right hands is a means to get from one place to another, but used incorrectly it becomes a deadly weapon”. He was right, thinking about it logically, if you look how much mass a vehicle has and its ability to accelerate and travel at high speeds, the consequences of even the smallest error can be disastrous, even at very low speed, the damaged caused by impact can be very costly, as I will be indicating in this case study.

Bespoke Steel Pallets - made to measure

Amazing - these stillages have held over 1.5tonnes every day for the last 15 years

bespoke stillagesWhen you buy industrial steel pallets or stillages (as they are also known), you expect them to last. An Essex manufacturer of purpose-made high performance doors and door sets, bought 18 such stillages from us 15 years ago. I guess even they were surprised that after all the work they have been put through, they are still very much the backbone in helping the business store the materials on site to help them produce the commercial, residential, healthcare, education and hotel buildings doors at the factory.
