Dura-Cast continues to respond to requests from laundry managers who want innovative products that solve their problems. Design a flare truck that’s rugged and ergonomically correct for today’s smaller workforce.
THE LAUNDRY MANAGERS’ PROBLEM
Flare trucks are our large-load workhorses, but they are responsible for many workmen’s compensation claims.
THE EQUIPMENT PROBLEM
Steep sided flare trucks compress loads and create high-strain situations for operators removing linens.
The LinenMaster Flare Truck is a new generation truck designed to ease operator back strain by angling out the sides to permit easier load access and less operator strain when removing contents.
The Dura-Cast Design Team created a Flare Truck that is easier to unload because it has angled sides. Flare trucks are traditionally used between dryers and ironers to transport large loads of linens. When the flare truck is loaded from the dryer into a traditional straight sided flare truck, the linens are compressed. Dura‑Cast’s Flare Truck has angled sides and this permits the large loads to expand into the space; rather than, being compressed. This allows the operators to separate the linens easier and with significantly less back strain.
The angled sides of the Dura‑Cast Flare Truck permit operators to minimize high-load back strain when removing linens. Because the sides flare out, an operator’s knees will fit under the top most portion of the side. They can now bend at the knees rather than bend only from the back. This minimizes back strains related to bending at the back and permits the more acceptable knee-bend method. Minimizing operator back strain minimizes worker compensation claims.
Strength and long-term durability are accomplished through the integrated rolled top edge and Dura-Cast’s unique semicircular ribbed construction. Flare Trucks can be nested when not in use or for efficient shipping. Dura‑Cast’s Poly Base won’t rust or corrode and bolt-through caster mounting ensures long useful truck life. High‑density linear polyethylene resin ensures that your flare truck will continue to perform for years in the toughest of conditions.
Spring Bottoms automatically adjust the height of the load so that operators do not have to bend into the cart to remove the final items. This minimizes the repetitive motion injuries that result from bending and stretching and more closely matches the ergonomic requirements for today’s smaller workforce.
Each stainless steel spring is enclosed in a fabric sleeve that prevents cart contents from becoming soiled and ensures that personnel cannot be pinched while springs are extended. Hinged end flaps minimize linen loss from items slipping underneath the spring bottom.
