Warehouse

Warehouse lifting equipment can be a vital component of day-to-day operations in a warehouse environment.

Warehouses are typically used to store raw materials, goods and machinery. Bulky items are commonplace, so heavy lifting is often par for the course. As such, high-quality lifting apparatus is paramount.

If you're in need of some advice on essential warehouse equipment, you've come to the right place. This blog post is stacked with advice to help you find the best lifting equipment for your warehouse working needs.

 

Types of Warehouse Lifting Equipment

When it comes to lifting heavy goods in a warehouse environment, there are a wide variety of solutions to choose from - though naturally the right tool for the job will depend on the nature of the job that needs doing.

Here are some of the warehouse lifting and handling products we offer here at SafetyLiftinGear:

Warehouse pallet truck

Pallet Trucks

An absolute staple of any warehouse, the pallet truck has been indispensable ever since its invention way back in 1947. For context, back in 1947, Clement Attlee was Prime Minister and Britain was still in post-war recovery mode.

The fact that this piece of equipment is still top dog today proves its staying power and shows that it's unlikely to be going anywhere anytime soon. All the more reason to make sure you have one in your facility!

When it comes to purchasing a pallet truck, there are a few things to keep in mind. It has evolved significantly over the last three quarters of a century and now comes in a variety of forms, including:

  • Heavy-Duty Pallet Trucks - Designed for lifting a range of pallets, from small loads to very heavy cargo, the standard pallet truck is a great all-rounder for warehouse use. It's also available in a number of variations, from stainless steel pallet trucks for humid conditions to long fork trucks for extra-long loads.

  • Weighing Scale Pallet Trucks - As the name suggests, these pallet trucks come with built-in weighing scales, allowing you to accurately record the weight of the load you are moving.

  • Battery Pallet Trucks - With a built-in chargeable lithium battery, these autonomous manual handling machines provide battery-powered pallet lifting for hassle-free lifts with unrestricted movement.

  • Electric Pallet Trucks - Electric pallet trucks offer easy manoeuvring for low-duty applications, cutting out the unnecessary hassle and headaches associated with manual material handling.

  • High-Lift Pallet Trucks - Extremely useful in warehouses with high-rise storage, these versatile pallet movers allow you to lift and lower to / from heights that would otherwise be unreachable with a traditional pallet mover.

Material lifter

Material Lifts

Also known as 'walkie stackers', material lifts are a common sight in warehouses due to the simple fact that they are highly effective for the task at hand. Capable of lifting heavy loads to impressive heights, these lifters are great for loading and unloading HGVs, as well as for standard warehouse use.

Material lifts can come in hand-winch form, in addition to the more popular battery/electric powered models. Additionally, they can also come with a variety of different load bases, typically available as a fork/platform or a hook for hoisting.
