Uk's Leading supermarket approached Handle-iT recently to discuss their options on buying a flatbed trolley that was light enough for their disabled staff to use but robust enough to take the strain of the stock they were trying to move.

Handle-iT's design team came up with the perfect solution, a flatbed trolley, made from aluminium which vastly reduced the overall weight but also a a lightweight polypropylene base to bring the weight down even further.

The end result was exactly what the customer needed, a nice light trolley with the strength of one of our more heavy weight and heavy duty, steel flatbed trolleys.

Rittal June 06 2013, 0 Comments

Rittal, wanted a Bespoke Sack Truck for moving Server Cabinets around the production lines..

This sack truck need to have 3 positions so the Cabinet could be lowered so the staff could move and be able to see over the top of it. They also need a ratchet Strap to support the Product on the Sack Truck. They customer also wanted this trolley in their own company colour.

This is a very intense production line as Rittal make cabinets for all the major hardware manufacturers, producing hundred of 1800mm plus high cabinets, the cabinet are weighing in at 120kg and the size makes them awkward to handle within the necessary time constraint of the production facility. Handle-iT re-enforce the back struts on appliance trucks with 25mm solid rod, so that they were able to take the abuse.

SMT Development May 15 2007, 0 Comments

Are moving electric pumps from outside the warehouse to the inside.

There is no way the pumps can risk getting wet. Also they are very big and bulky and so very awkward to handle. We suggested massive mumma as it has drop down sides, so if needs be they can drop them down to put the pump inside and raise them to make sure it stays inside.

We have also provided a tarpaulin cover that would ensure that the pump would never get wet inside the truck.
