For example, order picking trolleysand cage trolleys like the compact TS1B Stock Picking Trolley are perfect warehouse trolleys for stock picking as they come in multi-tier forms. Similarly, foldable office trolleys like the X-Cart Collapsible Trolley are the ideal transport trolleys for office environments as theyhelp to distribute files, archive boxes and mail.Moreover, catering trolleys such as the HD Plastic Gastronorm Trolley are suitable for food operations and hospitality industries as they are compatible with food trays, food boxes and food pans.

What to consider when choosing a Trolley for the workplace
There are a number of things to be aware of when looking for an industrial trolley. Firstly, it is important to know what kinds of loads you intend to transport and to make sure that their weights align with the load capacity of the trolley you choose. Transporting products that are too heavy for a work trolley’s load capabilities not only fails to get the job done, but more importantly, it endangers the safety of you and your workers.Secondly, if you have limited space in your workplace, consider getting a folding trolley like our HB210 Foldable Platform Trolley, or our portable SFT2809 Foldable Chrome Plated Hand Truck. These collapsible trolleys make for easy transport and storage, and theyensure that you can efficiently save room for other things. Finally, if you require additional trolley accessories or trolley attachments such as a clipboard or parts tray, these attachments are available on our website.
Safety Features of Our Trolleys
While our trolleys are designed to prioritise your safety, there are some additional measures that you can be mindful of to further preserve your safety. For example, research demonstrates that pushing rather than pulling a trolley reduces your risk of harm. This is because you can run over your own feet when pulling a trolley, and pulling while walking backwards can cause hazards like tripping and falling.While this is unavoidable in some situations, reducing your risk of danger when usinga material handling trolley where possible helps to protect the safety of you and your workers.
Furthermore, you should ensure that trolleys are properly operated in all situations. This helps to reduce workplace injuries such as back injuries, sprains and damage to ligaments, nerve joints and bones. Operating trolleys in a sufficient manner involves using them on stable surfaces and avoiding steep slopes or stairs. Since the horizontal force required to push or pull a trolley can pose harmful risks when performed poorly, appropriately using a trolley is imperative to maintaining workplace health and safety. Additionally, the floor conditions of your workplace should be examined since the quality of the floor surface will impact the effort required to transport loads. In particular, be aware that ramps and slopes may require mechanical assistance to help you move heavy equipment.
