What is the purpose of Platform Trolleys?
A platform trolley is a common piece of equipment found in environments where loads of differing weights and sizes need to be transported. There are several styles available and different options including the heavy duty platform trolley designed for industrial locations and foldaway trolleys that can be used for lighter loads. The main consideration when purchasing any platform trolley for your workplace is that it can accommodate the loads you need it to and still be movable by employees. So, be aware of the type of castors used on any platform trolley and the strength of the construction before you buy.
