With much of the nation's grocery and other consumer products being transported within roll cages it is important that the correct loading bay equipment is utilised by retailers to ensure these loads are handled safely and efficiently. Edmolift have worked in partnership with the retail industry to produce a product specifically for this task and the result, the Pitfree Multidock, ticks all the boxes of its target retailer market!
"The Goods in area is a busy and often congested space with constant goods movement, the Pitfree MultiDock can be operational within 15 minutes of arriving on site and absolutely no ground works are required", say Darren Papani, Managing Director of Edmolift. "This is a massive advantage over traditional loading bay lifts which require extensive pit works that limit the use of the area for many days".
The Pitfree MultiDock can be used as a free standing lift in an open yard or in front of an existing fixed height dock. Roll cages can be wheeled directly from the rear of any vehicle and then raised or lowered to the off-load height. The lowered height of the Pitfree MultiDock is just 90mm and it is supplied with a low gradient ramp.
Functionality and practicality have been successfully combined with safety. The Pitfree MultiDock is the only Loading Bay Lift with twin operator safety zones which encapsulate the operator in a steel safety frame to protect him from falls and crushing which are the two main causes of injury in the loading bay.
The Pitfree MultiDock easily accommodates two large roll cages as well as being suitable for palletised loads and trolleys. It has a non-slip platform surface, two sets of push button controls and a full perimeter trip bar mechanism.
