L/W Platform - July 2012
The client had a requirement to manually hand-ball goods from vehicles onto pallets which are then in turn off-loaded to ground level by FLT.
The platform needed to be mobile and was provided with pockets to allow it to be manouevred using a fork truck. Height adjustable legs allow the platform to be used to serve a wide range of vehicles.
Height: 1000-1550mm (adjustable in 50mm increments)
Special features: Safety Barriers with a locking gas spring, hinged bridge plate with steel "piano" hinge to bridge gap between vehicle and platform.
The photo above shows the bridgeplate with steel hinge and chains hooks and tensioners to lock the platform to the trailer.
This type of hinge was chosen as it offers maximum strength and ensures a smooth transistion as goods are (un)loaded.
