A Mid Wales based forklift truck attachment specialist has demonstrated its ongoing commitment to client safety by supplying a local firm with one of its innovative forklift safety cages.
Contact Attachments, which has been designing and manufacturing forklift safety platforms for over three decades, partnered with Maiden's of Telford to provide the team with a safer way of scanning and checking pallets through use of the forklift firm's Work Platforms.
The forklift safety cages are available to accommodate one to two people, have entry methods including gate and bar, come fully-certified, and comply with latest PM28 Health & Safety regulations. They are designed with perforated mesh to ensure the barrier between the platform user and potential hazardous areas of the forklift truck are protected, as well as anti-slip treads with drain holes to avoid accumulation of water or risk of slipping.
Hefin Reese, Commercial Manager at Maiden's of Telford explained "We approached Contact Attachments for their work platforms so that we could give our employees and easier and much safer way of scanning and checking pallets on our double-deck trailers. We've also found them useful for conducting some maintenance jobs on the trailer fleet, and for carrying out physical warehouse duties and checks"
"Having worked with Contact Attachments in a previous role, I know we'd receive not only fantastic service, but quality products that would be perfect for the job at hand. We're thrilled with our purchases, which have proved very popular amongst our team, and very much look forward to working with the firm again in the future"
David Manuel, Technical Sales Consultant at Contact Attachments, said "Our forklift platforms and safety cages are ideal forklift attachments for when certain maintenance work is required, and allow the operator to work at height freely and safely without danger of falling. We manufacture a variety of models, some with gates for entry and others with fixed rails, and each have a security locking system to ensure the platform will not slide off the forklift. Full length fork pockets are also provided for complete stability, and harness anchorage points and onboard handhold points are incorporated to ensure operator safety"
