One tonne SWL load tested stillage Photo

Traditionally reinforcing bar for the construction industry has been delivered to site in canvas bags, but not always safely. On numerous occasions the weight and shape of the bars has caused the bags to rip with the potential to cause serious accidents. A design brief was therefore issued to manufacture a stillage:
custom tipping skipsWith the strength to handle steel bar
custom tipping skipsWith a LOLER Test certificate
custom tipping skipsCapacity to be reused
custom tipping skipsSafe working load rating up to 1 Tonne
custom tipping skipsWith an identification number for traceability
Ridgeway designed a simple stillage complete with feet to allow for space saving stacking and lugs to enable lifting by crane. Each stillage was stamped with a serial number relating to a LOLER test certificate so that it complied with Health and Safety criteria.
