Panels, Sheets and Slabs – From pallet to placement

May 7th, 2014 by admin No comments »

The methods we adopt for any situation when it comes to moving sheets of materials and panels, window casements and glass panels are vast. Trolley Selector, based in the UK has a range of options available for moving everything from a sheet of plywood to ready-to-install industrial doors and windows.

At the lightweight and cheap end of the range, Trolley Selector has a range of DIY and Panel Trolleys suitable for most situations. Small Panel Trolleys can easily accommodate upto ten sheets of plasterboard or plywood, with the optional addition of a basket which can hold additional sundry items such as tools, fixings and supplies. Large Panel Trolleys are designed to support upto twenty five sheets of material. The advantage of these smaller types of panel trolleys is that they are ideal for the small to medium sized installations where the movement of small quantities of sheet or board are required. For larger installations, multiple journeys with a full trolley may be required or even the use of multiple trolleys to achieve the same result. Each Panel Trolley can be moved with just one operator, however, with the combined weight of  more than ten sheets of material, we would advise having two operators for a more safe load and transportation. The end result is that users are still required to carry out heavy lifting of sheet materials at the beginning and end of each trolley journey.

Taking the human element of lifting out of the installation process requires advanced technology, which in this case comes in the form of a panel robot, specifically designed and manufactured to allow the movement of air proof panelled items. This robot can comfortably lift upto 200kg and with its unique arm and motion, can move items from laying flat on the floor into position with its unique easy to use control panel. The Medium Duty Panel Robot is particularly useful for manouvering sealed window units, steel plates and doors, fire doors and other airproof items. This trolley / robot / lifter is capable of moving over rough terrain external, particularly useful if the items have been delivered on a pallet and the site is still during the construction phase where the majority of infrastructure is not in place that would normally be required for the use of regular equipment. Additional wheels and outriggers can be added to the Medium Duty Panel Robot to provide a more stable platform.

When it comes to the health and safety of your employees during the location of heavy panelled items, this panel robot is the most efficient solution. A good working environment is provided with less damage to materials, your employees get greater satisfaction from a job well done, and they are less prone to sick days due to lack of heavy lifting, and the installation time is reduced drastically. A product well worth looking at!!



Dollies, Skates and Trolleys without handles

May 6th, 2014 by admin No comments »

Most trolleys have handles, we like to have something to hold onto to push or pull our trolley with. Wherever you go there are always trolleys with handles, for instance the supermarket or the DIY centre or the home improvement store. It gives us great comfort to hold onto something when we are in control of a trolley. However, there are circumstances when a trolley doesn’t have or doesn’t need to have a handle. These handle-less trolleys are sometimes referred to as Dollies or Skates. This products are unique in their design in that a handle is not normally affixed due to the nature of the items being transported on the dolly or skate. Pianos by the nature of their size would require a handle in a very awkward position to achieve the movement required. So, they dollies used do not have handles. The four wheels on the dolly or skate allow the piano to be moved without touching the floor surface but allow the operators the freedom to move the piano without having worry so much about the falling of it and potential damage occurring. Most large items can be moved easily with a dolly or skate, for example, a safe requires a strong dolly to navigate through corridors and doorways, machinery and white goods can be moved easily with a skate. Filing cabinets tend to be heavy when loaded and the hassle of decanting a cabinet can be removed if corner skates are used. Each corner skate is a triangle in shape with three wheels and a shape which allows the corner of a cabinet, or any other item, to sit neatly. The cabinet can be moved across smooth surfaces with ease without the need for heavy bulkier trolleys and no specific lifting equipment to locate the heavy item onto the trolley. Dollies are particularly useful for plastic stacking trays and containers where these items can easily locate against lugs or upstands on the base of the dolly and allow the trays / containers to stack on top of each other but still be secure. For movement of the dolly stack, the use simply pushes against the uppermost stacked item.
