Materials Handling ’s extruded nitrile rubber buffers are produced in 80 metre lengths and wound onto a spool. There are three ways to buy – spool lots, bag lots or cut lengths.
D section (hollow)
Normally placed around the edges of the trolley (between corner buffers) to prevent damage to door jamb etc. Fitted by pushing a (off-cut) metal strip along the centre of the section and screwing through into the side of the trolley. The head of the screw will pop through the outer rubber leaving a small hole. If the strip is to be fitted around a rounded corner, this should be of at least 50mm radius to prevent buckling of the strip.
These are used to prevent damage to corridor walls. The buffers are placed onto tubular legs just before the castors. When a trolley approaches a wall the buffers make contact first and freely revolve on the tubing, thus rolling the trolley along the wall so it causes no damage. Polyurethane buffers are quite firm and are designed for long life. If a trolley is heavily abused urethane buffers could mark walls.
