Learn the proper measures needed to be taken when loading and unloading slabs in various situations on and off the jobsite
March 26, 2021
Safety should always be at the forefront when moving slabs around a warehouse, fabrication shop or on the jobsite. Whether transporting the large, heavy pieces of stone or quartz manually or with a forklift or crane, following safety procedures is a must.
Moving material using the traditional two-man team has long been one of the stone industry’s leading causes of injury and even a possible loss of life. Up until recently, there were no other safe mobile alternatives available.
Specifically designed for handling stone slabs, Wood’s Powr-Grip’s MT (manual tilt) Series Stone Lifters feature a 90-degree tilt using an above-center pivot that enables slabs to hang upright when lifted from storage or display racks and tilt to flat when lowered to bridge saws or work tables.
