No Lift Install System's material handling equipment
If you are a stone shop owner, you know the risks that lifting 3cm counter poses to your installers. But do you know the costs? On average, stone shops lose $12,000 to $15,000 a year due to lost productivity and breakage. This can easily double with a workers compensation claim or the loss of a skilled installer.
So, what’s the solution? Is there a way to reduce unnecessary labor and breakage while also avoiding install related injuries? The answer is “yes,” and the way is the No Lift Install System.
The No Lift Install System is a cart that mechanically lifts, safely rotates and easily rolls heavy and awkward countertops into place.
