Crown to highlight safety features at H&S Scotland

Crown to highlight safety features at H&S Scotland

Crown Lift Trucks will be exhibiting a cross-section of its market-leading equipment at the forthcoming Health & Safety Scotland event at the SEC, Glasgow (12-13 September 2018), with a special show price promotion on one of its most popular models.

Taking centre stage on the Crown stand (HS20) are the award-winning WP 3010 powered pallet truck and the Wave® work assist vehicle.

Crown forklifts are designed with safety in mind, and it aims to help its customers maintain a safe operation with equipment designed around the operator. The compact new WP 3010 powered pallet truck meets the requirements of many demanding applications, whether it's dock work, delivery service, in-store retail or heavy manufacturing. A recent winner of the prestigious iF Design Award, it improves productivity, performance and throughput on and around lorries and helps operators work safely and efficiently around the public.

Crown will be running a promotion for visitors to its stand at Health & Safety Scotland, offering the WP 3010 at a special show price of £18.50 per week on contract hire.

The Wave, Crown's work assist vehicle, is a revolutionary order picker that delivers significant savings through enhanced productivity, application versatility and safety. Often copied but never reached, the Crown Wave celebrates the 20th anniversary of its launch this year. Capable of reaching working heights of up to 5m and travelling at up to 8km/h (depending on lift height), the nimble Wave's four-point safety system provides enhanced operator control and safety:

- Interlocked gates must be closed to raise or lower the operator platform;
- Platform sensors disable the raise, lower and travel functions if a presence is detected below the platform when raised;
- Hand sensors ensure the operator has both hands on the controls for normal travel and lift functions;
- Dual foot pedals include sensors to ensure the operator has both feet properly positioned on the platform.

In addition, Crown will be offering demonstrations of its InfoLink® fleet management solution. InfoLink tracks data across an entire forklift fleet to provide insight on fleet utilisation, energy consumption, service scheduling. Furthermore, it enables managers of material handling fleets to monitor and manage operator factors including compliance, impacts and productivity.

Kenny Watson, General Manager Scotland for Crown Lift Trucks, says: "Health & Safety Scotland will be a significant event for Crown in Scotland. In a year when we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the opening of our Scotland depot, we have a great opportunity at the SEC to showcase one of Crown's main tenets, which is safety."

Crown has a significant, growing presence in Scotland, having established a depot at Coatbridge 10 years ago. Among its notable customers in the region are the Bruichladdich and Tullibardine distilleries, which each operate a mixed fleet of Crown forklift trucks.

Crown's stand is situated stand HS20 at the event next month.
