Creform Custom Platform Carts
Built-to-length cart platform.
Greer, SC — Creform Corporation has designed an unusual cart that is especially suitable for long, heavy and awkward size container handling to achieve optimum maneuverability for manual transfer through tight aisle ways and limited space storage areas. Designed for large package transfer and support, the Crate Cart utilizes the company's highly adaptable and flexible product system.

It uses the company's system of plastic coated steel pipes and joints which provides flexibility of design, allowing carts to be built to accommodate crates with commonality of width but with various lengths, or vice-versa. Simple construction with sufficient cross bracing throughout the length of the cart assures each crate size can be centered on the cart for maximum support.

Awkward size, heavy crates often cause problems because they need simple manual transport from one point to another yet need to be on a cart that can withstand the rigors of fork truck loading and unloading.

Crates may be loaded onto the cart with forklift vehicles, moved to process points, then materials unloaded by hand. The cart provides positioning agility and extreme maneuverability in manual operating conditions without the use of power equipment.

To accommodate vehicle handling, the Crate Cart is designed and constructed for the rigors of loading via forklifts. Plus, its modular design concept promotes simple repairs if forklift accidents occur, thus making maintenance procedures economical and quick in order to minimize downtime. It is also easily modified to meet changing process and material requirements or disassembled, using the components for completely different applications.

Though completely customer-specified as to size and capacity, a typical Crate Cart has up to 1500 lb load-bearing capacity, and has overall dimensions of 155 x 31 x 16-in. It was built incorporating six large diameter swivel casters for easy rolling and

maneuverability. Caster wheels are offered in a variety of materials to provide long, durable service over varying floor surfaces, and in diameters to optimized strength and vehicle support.

A wide variety of pipe color options are also available, as are heavy duty 42mm diameter pipe that provides added load capacities while minimizing material needs.
