One of the UK’s leading forklift truck accessory providers is taking the plunge with its new range of platforms that will increase safety for employees.
Contact Attachments, based in Mid Wales, is launching its newly-designed ‘Transfer Platforms’ to give its clients an easier way of loading and unloading pallets and goods to various heights and levels.
Jason Cadman, Technical Sales Consultant at Contact Attachments, said: "Many companies have traditionally used pallets to transport goods from one place to another, but quite often they run the risk of the products falling off, which may not only damage the goods, but also harm the employee. We have produced the Transfer Platform to not only increase the health and safety of staff, but to also provide adequate protection to the goods being moved.
"By consisting three frame sections on each side and a ramp on the front to allow easier access onto the platform, the Transfer Platforms operate by utilising internal anchorage points for strapping of goods, which comes complete with retaining chains to the front rails. They include a security locking system to fork heels – ensuring the platform will not slide off – as well as having full length fork pockets to provide complete stability.
"The dimensions of the platforms are specifically designed to meet the needs of each and every one of our clients, and are suited exactly to the sizes and loads of the products being transported. Like all our attachments, our Transfer Platforms are manufactured to the highest quality and are fully tested and compliant with all appropriate health and safety regulations," Jason concluded.
Contact Attachments has been designing and manufacturing forklift truck attachments from its base in Newtown, Mid Wales, for over 30 years and is recognised as the quality leader of truck attachments in the UK.
