Material handling involves the movement or storage materials in industrial settings such as warehouses, construction sites and supply chains. People who work in these types of industries use a variety of different equipment to complete material handling tasks safely and efficiently.

Material handling equipment can be broken down into four categories:

  • Transport equipment
  • Positioning equipment
  • Control/protection equipment
  • Storage equipment

At we specialise in providing our customers with high-quality, reliable material handling equipment. Whether you need a pallet truck to transport goods around a warehouse or a robust storage cupboard to keep your tools secure, we have a material handling solution to suit you.

Material Lifts & Stackers

Our material lifts are amongst our most popular material handling solutions. Choose from a manually operated, semi-electric or fully-powered material lift depending on the nature of the task you need to complete.

Our manual stacker trucks are ideal for moving open boarded pallets in confined spaces because they have small turning circles and are relatively compact. Our semi-electric and fully-automated stackers reduce the amount of physical excursion needed to complete material handling tasks, so they’re perfect for more frequent use.

Pallet Trucks

Pallet trucks are an excellent material handling solution and can be used to transport goods from one location to another with ease. At SafetyLiftinGear we offer both manual and electric pallet trucks to suit a range of preferences and requirements.

Our manual pallet trucks are perfect for moving heavy duty loads because they offer maximum control as you move and manoeuvre. For low-duty applications in warehouses or on lorries choose our electric pallet trucks. You can complete your material handling task quickly and effectively with very little effort.

Site Storage & Cabinets

For larger material storage needs, we offer walk-in storage units that are made of galvanised steel and fitted with strong lockable doors. To store hazardous materials, tools and equipment we offer a selection of cabinets.

If you need a construction storage system that can be easily stacked to save space, stackable stillages are a great option. We offer stackable stillages in three different formats, stackable stillage frames, mesh-sided stillages and solid-sided stillages.

These fully certified stackable stillages are versatile and easy to use. They have broad feet meaning they are incredibly stable when in use, or when stacked. And they also have crane attachment points so that they can be lifted using a crane or forklift when you need to move them around site.

These stackable stillages have an impressive load capacity of 1500kg, meaning they’re incredibly useful for storing lots of different materials. Choose a mesh-sided or solid-sided stackable stillage depending on the nature of the material you wish to store.

Materials that are more fluid like and are better suited to the solid stackable stillages while more solid materials like bricks will sit securely in our mesh-sided stillages, no problem!

If you have any questions about our stackable stillages, don’t hesitate to get in touch with a member of our team who will be more than happy to help! View all the stillages we offer below:
