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.
