Fits to anything

04 February 2019

Fitting around the base of powered pedestrian trucks, the ACKBelt from Weston Handling Consultancy connects directly to its existing Tiller Arm Anti-Crush Stomach Button.

The company says this increases the detection area of an impact by typically, over 800%. The ACKBelt has been developed to give quick and easy fitting to almost any shape, following its form. ACKBelt's can be retrofitted to most makes and models of trucks.

Weston explains: “Fitting ACKBelts to your fast-moving powered trucks is your easiest way of installing cost-effective, innovative safety features that can instantly give you greater protection for the operator and for plant and equipment, giving you a faster payback.”

Weston Handling Consultancy has produced demo videos here.
