BT Lifter Silent hand pallet truck and BT Levio Silent powered pallet truck awarded Quiet Mark from the Noise Abatement Society

The Quiet Mark is an international mark of approval awarded by the UK based
Noise Abatement Society in an aim to encourage worldwide companies to
develop products with reduced noise.

Gloria Elliott, Chief Executive, Noise Abatement Society and Quiet Mark
comments: "Loud, unexpected noise or low, continual sound vibrations trigger
strong physical and emotional responses. Without the ability to control the
noise around them, people become upset, stressed and negative."

The new BT Lifter Silent hand pallet truck with an operating noise of no
more than 60dBA was awarded the Quiet Mark for reducing operating sound by
up to 20dBA in comparison to a standard hand pallet truck.

Fitted with high quality rubber steering, Powerthane bogie wheels, frames
fitted with shock absorbing material to reduce vibration noise and
adjustable rubber studs, the BT Lifter Silent operates at the volume of a
normal conversation; a significantly lower level of noise for reduced indoor
noise, in applications such as warehouses, shopping centres and public
spaces as well as out of hour deliveries or deliveries in built up
residential areas.

The BT Levio Silent powered pallet truck has also been fitted with shock
absorbing material to reduce vibration noise and Powerthane wheels decrease
travel noise. Fitted with a unique lifting system the BT Levio Silent has
been designed to operate at volumes dramatically reduced from the standard
alternative.

Mark Peters, Warehouse Product Manager at Toyota Material Handling UK
commented: "The BT Lifter Silent is an impressive piece of material handling
equipment, designed specifically to solve the problems of noisy out of hour
deliveries or for deliveries that take place in built up or residential
areas. Working closely with the Freight Transport Association, Noise
Abatement Society and Transport for London we have been able to demonstrate
the BT Lifter Silent and it’s capabilities for silent deliveries."

The Quiet Mark campaign was set up by the Noise Abatement Society in
response to calls received by a national noise helpline. The Quiet Mark is
awarded to appliances and tools that operate at the quietest level in
relation to competitors.
