Midland Pallet Trucks has sought to guarantee the safety of workers across the country battling extreme weather conditions with its range of stainless and galvanized steel pallet trucks.
Pallet trucks made of stainless and galvanized steel are a perfect solution to combat the hazardous elements the UK has seen recently, as both materials are incredibly resistant to both rust and corrosion.
Britain is currently bracing itself for the after effects of three tropical storms over the course of the next two months according to AccuWeather, which has forecasted the upcoming Autumn and Winter period to be the worst hurricane season for seven years.
Phil Chesworth, Managing Director of Midland Pallet Trucks, said: “In light of the recent hurricane-like weather we’ve seen batter the UK last week we wanted to make everyone aware of the pallet trucks we stock that can cope in these extreme conditions.
“Our pallet trucks made with stainless and galvanized steel guarantee anyone working outside peace of mind that their pallet truck isn’t going to suddenly snap or buckle due to being corroded by the torrential weather we’ve had, and are going to continue to see in the coming months.
“These materials are almost impossible to corrode or rust due to the extreme strength and water-resistant properties of the stainless and galvanized steel exteriors.”
Due to the nature of the work in which pallet trucks are used, it’s especially important that they don’t break when in use. This is because the trucks often load thousands of kilograms of weight at once, meaning worker safety could be potentially at risk should a pallet truck snap or buckle whilst in use.
Stainless steel has advanced water-resistant properties due to its atomic make-up, which contains chromium. This reacts with air and water to form a thin, stable barrier around the exterior of the material which prevents water and oxygen penetrating the steel inside, making it virtually invincible to rust or corrosion.
Galvanized steel works similarly; a zinc coating is applied to the exterior of the steel which prevents the metal becoming corroded or eaten away by the elements.
“News has recently come out that Britain is set to face one of the stormiest Autumns on record, which is why I’d urge businesses large and small to consider a pallet truck that can cope with the run of wet weather we’re entering into, and possibly save a life.”
Individuals using pallet trucks in outdoor environments, such as dock workers or loading bay employees, are especially at risk of being injured due to rusted equipment breaking from prolonged exposure to the elements.
Midland Pallet Trucks offers an extensive selection of weather resistant stainless and galvanized steel pallet trucks designed to lift varying shapes, weights and sizes of loads.
Short delivery is also promised with Midland Pallet Trucks; the company is centrally located in the UK with fast access to all main motorways and rail networks, making a fast and prompt delivery of weather-resistant pallet trucks guaranteed.
