Building Material Products
NO STOP IN THE DEMAND
Whether you handle lawn & garden supplies, building supplies, palletized goods, engineered floor, wall and roof structural components, Combilift can establish a solution that guarantees improved storage capacity, safer product handling and increased productivity
Material handling within the Building supply and DIY industry can sometimes have its complications. The following industry goods are various shapes, sizes and weights while also ranging from long lengths of Timber to palletised goods as well as heat and plumbing supplies just to name a few which are usually stored in a main warehouse or yard area.
STORING BUILDING SUPPLIES
The extensive collection of goods stored in main supply areas can lead to serious issues for transporting materials when operating standard regular forklifts on the market. Labour of more than one forklift may be required which can cause interruptions, time constraints and overall inconvenience in daily operations.
A regular forklift will not have the capability to safely move long lengths of materials around the yard, often involving operators travelling with loads held aloft to avoid obstacles. The safety of staff is significantly reduced while the risk of damage goods is greatly increased.
“The extra storage space we have created means we can buy in stock in bulk at a better price and pass this saving onto our customers. The Combi-CB was more expensive than some alternative options, but the benefits we pinpointed even just a few weeks after it was put into operation mean that it will more than pay for itself as part of our long term plans."Director Shane Mullen, BJ Mullen Building Supply
MAXIMISE THE POTENTIAL OF YOUR WAREHOUSE
Combilift’s concept is built around the efficient use of space. Our multi-directional and articulated technology alone can double the capacity of any warehouse. Here at Combilift, we offer a Free warehouse optimisation service that identifies customised solutions to increase storage and improve productivity of your warehouse
Key to maximising the potential of warehouse storage space and getting the most from your Building Supplies storage is the use of forklift and material handling solutions that are also optimised to operate in very narrow aisles and to great heights safely and to maximum efficiency.
Combilift range of warehousing trucks are supremely suited to work in conjunction with Building Supplies and make space savings of up to 50%. Whatever your pallet racking and warehouse configuration, we have forklift trucks that are guaranteed to help you maximus storage capacity, improve safety and maximise the efficiency of you e-fulfilment workflow.
With the ability to operate in very narrow aisles, VNA, in the warehouse – as narrow as 1.6m – the Aisle-Master articulated forklift increases and maximises storage capacity. What’s more, by using the one truck, users can increase productivity and eliminate time-consuming double handling and speed up “truck to rack” operations.
Equipped with our patented multi-position tiller arm the Combi-WR offers safer operation. The tiller can be turned to the left or right, allowing the operator to remain at the side, providing full visibility of the load and forks, while maintaining full steering control, enabling greater awareness of their surroundings which enhances overall safety.
With lift capacities up to 1,500 kg, the versatility to work indoors or out, and the ability to carry long loads in tight aisles the combi-WR4 is the perfect solution for busy warehouses such as food & drink and DIY warehouses.
THE COMPACT MULTI-DIRECTIONAL FORKLIFT
The innovative combi-CB is the original multi-directional counterbalance forklift truck. More compact than a conventional forklift the CB is perfect for transporting goods such as palletised loads but has the added advantage of having the ability to carry long loads in sideways mode, making this the perfect forklift for warehouses that store a wide variety of goods.
