Get a load of the safety equipment
12 December 2012
The installation of a new modular loading platform system from Thorworld Industries is reported to have helped increase the efficiency of loading and unloading and enhance safety for Universal Silencer. The system has b
Universal Silencer supplies engineered acoustic, emission and filtration solutions, and it is the size of this equipment that has necessitated the need for a platform system.Many of the acoustic systems are too large to be removed from a lorry using a traditional yard ramp because, as the forklift truck reverses down the ramp, the silencer would raise up, hitting and damaging the roof of the lorry.
Thorworld's engineers designed a bespoke, modular system, consisting of a Type 9 loading ramp, providing access to six Thorworld raised platforms, which have been connected together to form a single structure measuring 5.9 x 7.5m.
Safety has been ensured with the installation of a wide variety of Thorworld ancillary equipment and safety aids on the platform and in the surrounding area. These include a dockboard, dock bumpers, flared alignment curbs, fork and pallet truck raves, removable hand rails and a set of access steps.
