Protecting product from forklifts
Millwood, Inc., Vienna, Ohio, introduced the Product Protector, a solid-steel frame with a rubber bumper that attaches to a forklift to prevent pallets and product from being destroyed with a forklift.
Instead of destroying a pallet when a fork truck moves too hard or fast, the Product Protector impacts the stringer before the deck boards are damaged by the fork tine heel.
The device is small, weighing only 37 pounds and measuring 16.25 inches wide, but can sustain a 30,000-pound impact. Plus, the zinc coating on the solid steel prevents corrosion.
