Safe transport of Whisky barrels

13. May 2020 | QualityForks

How can we realize a safe and efficient transport of whisky barrels? This questions was asked by a distillery in France. The valuable load should not slip off the fork or be subject to heavy vibrations. A solution has to be found.

This special fork could be offered by VETTER. An exceptional fork blade with rounded recesses provides that the barrels can not shift onto the fork blade. Thus, a safe transport of 2 barrels is possible with a fork length of 1,600 mm. The very small fork blade facilitates load pick-up. And the GrippFix cladding prevents slipping off.

In summary: an absolutely perfect solution for barrel transports – not only for whisky but for all round shapes such as all other barrels, coils and much more.
