Whether you work in a factory, hospital, warehouse or any other location where you transport gas cylinders, safety is your number one priority. When it comes to doing the job safely and efficiently, gas container trolleys are a must.
According to the HSE, manual handling injuries and falling cylinder impacts are among the top hazards associated with gas cylinders. That’s why it’s important to have the right piece of equipment to make moving and handling them safer. Enter, the gas container trolley.
They have a flat base for the cylinder or bottle to rest on and a belt or chain to secure it when you’re on the move.
Most models have ergonomic handles, robust wheels, and swivel castors which make light work of moving heavy cylinders. Once you’ve loaded the cylinder on, the trolley tips backwards, distributing the weight and making it easy to transport. Gas container trolleys have a steel framework, so they are built to last and will protect your precious cargo.
Gas container trolleys come in different sizes and boast a range of features to suit the job you’re doing. From transporting single cylinders to tandem models, and container trolleys for small cylinders, you’ll find them all in our range.
Sometimes when you’re investing in equipment, you want it to do that bit more. What if you need a trolley to move not only a cylinder but the key equipment you need for your job too? Say no more.
