WP-GC18 forklift goods cages, now available from Prolift Solutions , have been designed as a storage and transport solution suitable for furniture and whitegoods.
They feature a hinged ramp as standard that allows furniture trolleys access into the cage. Locking the ramp in the vertical position and attaching the two safety chains across the front secures goods inside the cage.
WP-GC18 forklift goods cages are manufactured strictly in accordance with Australian Standard AS 2359.1, and also feature:
- safe working load (SWL) of 1000kg
- load centre 600mm
- unit weight 190kg
- pocket Size 160 x 60mm
- pocket centres 644mm
- horizontal C of G 600mm
- vertical C of G 300mm
- supplied with slipper locking pins; and
- a painted enamel finish.
Prolift Solutions advises that customers will need to allow two to three weeks to manufacture these goods cages, unless they are currently in stock. They are not designed or certified to convey personnel.
In addition, the use of a work platform on a forklift truck should not be considered if the lift capacity of that forklift is less than 1825kg for a counterbalanced type or 1095kg for a straddle type forklift.
The SWL of the cages is a structural rating for the attachment only. Actual forklift/attachment residual capacity must be obtained from the forklift manufacturer. The type of product being handled and operating instructions should also be considered when considering residual capacity.
