Forklift attachment firm provides tip-top solution to manual handling

A specialist forklift attachment firm has extended a helping hand to one of the UK's leading commercial roofing contractors by supplying them with innovative tipping skips as a modern alternative to manual waste handling.


Mid Wales-based Contact Attachments, which provides a range of forklift attachments and material handling solutions, has supplied its innovative Auto Release tipping skips to Merseyside-based MAC Roofing and Contracting Ltd to help clear its working areas and allows employees to safely and efficiently remove waste and metal sheets for disposal into allocated skips


Sean Matthews, Operations Manager at Mac Roofing, said "We needed the skip attachments to transfer off-cuts of metal sheets from our fabrication machines more efficiently, and move them to a waste skip that we have on site. We also have a second skip attachment that is to be used at a new hospital site to move rubbish and dispose of it in allocated waste skips"


The Auto Release tipping skips unique twin locks, pre-drilled castor plates and safety chains, as with all of Contact Attachments skips, as well as nudge bars attached to the front which activate teh standard release handle to empty the contents, meaning that the operative doesn't have to leave teh cab of the truck


Mac Roofing & Contracting Ltd are one of the market leaders providing commercial roofing services to a large number of public and private sector organisations, both in the local North West and nationwide.


Sean continued "The Auto Release tipping skip is easy to operate and means that we can lift and tip waste directly into skips, completely removing the physical strains of doing it manually, and making the whole process safer and quicker for our employees. We're thrilled with our purchase, which was delivered in the 10 days as promised, and very much look forward to using Contact Attachments products in the future


David Manual, Technical Sales Consultant at Contact Attachments, added "We're delighted that one of our products has helped improve the efficieny and safety at MAC Roofing and Contracting Ltd. As a firm, we're really committed to the safety of our customers, which is why we have designed a skip that ensures tasks can be carried out automatically, rather than manually. The auto-release skip, for example, ensures optimum safety for the employee by taking away the need of getting out of the cab, or harming themselves by waste being disposed"
