The platform trolleys feature a fail safe brake that ensures that the trolley does not move when the handle is not depressed. Simply squeezing the handle releases the brake and when the handle is released the trolley will stop, even on inclines.
The push handles fold flat for easy storage and transport. The handbrake unit is available for 300kg platform and wire cage platform trolleys. The new models are sold as complete trolleys so hand brake can not be retrofitted.
Platform trolleys can be used in environments with pedestrian ramps when trolleys may be left unattended, such as hospitals, nursing homes, airports and shopping centres.
