The narrow escape

Tractel (UK), in conjunction with Stayfast UK, has developed a solution which will enable operators of stacker truck equipment in narrow aisles to escape in the event of an emergency. The Derope is an automatic descent control device which allows a simple-hands-free descent from almost any height and is small enough to be permanently installed into the truck.

Stayfast’s Jon Tayler says: “Users tend to feel more at ease with an automatic system because it allows them hands-free movement to climb over obstacles such as stuck pallets – they avoid a balancing act!” Stayfast offers a complete package including consultancy, equipment supply and contract lease.

Psion Teklogix and SSI Schaeffer will be among the major exhibitors at Logistics Link 2004, being held on February 3 and 4 at Sandown Park, Esher, Surrey.
