As useful as they are, drums can be incredibly dangerous when handled incorrectly. The simple act of manually lifting, turning or pulling a drum can injure a workers back. Things can get even riskier if a drum is dropped and dented. A dented drum can lead to spills of hazardous chemicals, loss of materials and workflow disruptions.
BIG safety offers a variety of drum handling equipment to make your work environment as safe and efficient as possible, including drum trolleys, cradles and cabinets.
Our Drum Handling Equipment
Keep your team safe by outfitting them with the best tools on the market:
We offer a gas cylinder trolley which can be used in both industrial as well as medical settings and laboratories. When using our trolley, operators can safely transport gas canisters, exerting a maximum of 15kg of force when tilting the canister, before securing it with the included chain and pushing it along effortlessly. Our drum trolley allows for the transport of up to 300kg containers, without having to load them on to a foot plate beforehand. In this case, workers will imput a maximum of 20kg of force when loading, before being able to push it with minimum effort. The trolley catch can secure drums from 50 to 200 gallons at different heights.
All of our cabinets are built in accordance with Australian Standards to ensure the safe storage of flammable liquids and waste. These are some of the features you can expect:
Acid and Alkaline resistant. powdered coat paint finish
Fail-Safe locking mechanism
Adjustable leveling feet for placement in uneven surfaces
Corrugated shelves to contain spills
150mm sump to contain larger leaks
Thermally insulated walls.
Even unloading from pallets can be time consuming and possibly dangerous if done by hand. Our depalletisers can make the process quick, safe and effortless as they allow for the tranfer of pallets from the side and from corners by a single worke, saving time and reducing labour costs.
Rotating a drum sideways and back, wether it be for storage, decanting or rolling can easily result in dents and spills because of the dramatic shifting of the liquids within. Our cradles allow a single worker to easily rotate and turn drums by applying 15 to 25 kilograms of force, depending on the model.
