Loading and unloading equipment specialists, Thorworld Industries Ltd has published its new 2008/9 product range catalogue, packed full of materials handling solutions for specifiers, buyers and users of loading bay equipment, accessories and safety aids.
Included in the 44-page full-colour catalogue are details of its enhanced selection of mobile yard ramps – ideal for the fast and efficient loading and unloading of vehicle trailers and containers by fork truck, particularly where there is no raised loading dock.
The updated ramps range now includes Standard, Deluxe and Super Deluxe (light, medium and heavy duty) models, with selected versions in 7, 10, 12 and 15 tonne capacities and available in lengths from 11 to 12.2 metres.
A ramp rental facility is also provided through Thorworld's RentARamp operation, with a sale or return option, and the catalogue includes some of the important points to consider when selecting a ramp.
For loading and unloading cages or pallets from trucks, where there is no loading dock or perhaps insufficient space for a yard ramp, is the mobile Truckloada, available in three capacities, and the Dockloada scissor lift platform which can be installed inside or outside a building.
Also featured in this latest catalogue are products to bridge and seal the gap between the truck and loading dock, including dock plates & boards, dock levellers, seals and shelters.
There are details of a wide range of Thorworld accessories and safety aids including safety mirrors, wheel risers, loading bay ladders, vehicle wheel chocks, traffic lights, trailer safety locks, locking key boxes, vehicle wheel locks, safety signs, dock lights, dock safety guards, duck bumpers, trailer landing leg and below-ground bumper supports, and bumper selections.
As well as multipurpose and wheelchair access ramps, there are restraint and protection products including sleeping policemen and speed stoppers, vehicle restraints, safety bollards, wheel guides and alignment curbs, flexi safety barriers, racking protector brackets, column protectors, paper roll protectors, protector pads and stabiliser plates.
