PALLETS

Folding Cage Pallets rebranded CubiCage

  February 19th, 2015    

Avatan’s range of folding rod formed cage pallets is now being re-branded CubiCages. Our wide range of collaspible cage pallets will now be banded into one group within the CubiCage and Stackable Retention Unit pages on our website. We routinely carry stocks of a variety of CubiCages and now include within this range the Euro 91 folding Euro Cage Pallet. The family of folding cage stillages is becoming more popular as transport costs rise. With the ability to collapse the CubiCages into a fraction of their assembled size, transport and storage costs can be significantly reduced.
For example, up to 480 Stackable Retention Units will fit in a 45′ load. Similarly approximately 280 Euro 91 cage pallets or similar number of rod formed CubiCages will fit in the same space. This compares with trailers accommodating only 40-60 of a similar but rigid container. Immense transport savings are possible.

Our stock CubiCages are all manufactured to match the British pallet size 1200mm x 1000mm and, with an overall height of 1000mm, have a capacity of just over a cubic metre. The same volume will fit in our standard Stackable Retention Unit. Alternatively, the Euro 91 CubiCage Euro Cage Pallet is designed around the standard European pallet with nominal dimensions of 1200mm x 800mm x 970mm overall height.

Holding large stocks of many of these items, Avatan Handling Equipment Ltd can respond quickly to customers needs. Next day delivery options are available to most areas within the UK.

We are not suggesting that CubiCages are suitable for all eventualities and therefore offer an extensive range of more conventional stillages, cage pallets, box pallets and post pallets. Manufactured in our UK plant, rigid and collapsible stillages can be designed to suit your own very special needs. We take pride in the fact that we can be adaptable and welcome the opportunity to discuss customers storage problems. Let us help you solve your storage difficulties.

Whatever your needs, sale or rental, do please give contact our sales team. We will be delighted to help.


Second hand week

  January 17th, 2014    

It is always strange how buses come along in pairs, well this week has seen an unusual collection of second hand items become available. Added to our used equipment stocks this week are 200 Aluminium Pallets, 100 SHC33 Ex MOD Cage Pallets and over 200 SHC199 Box Pallets.

The aluminium pallets are in superb condition and, with a bit of a clean up, would be suitable for most food or pharmaceutical applications. We anticipate these will sell very quickly.

Then, we found some second hand heavy duty cage pallets, as used by the Ministry of Defence, and a very popular second hand item, and then received a quantity of steel box pallets back into stock following hire and these too are now to be sold second hand.

Although the majority of what we sell is new equipment, some from our extensive range of stock items and others manufactured to order, we know that our customers do like a bargain. When we can get hold of used stillages, (cage pallets, box pallets and post pallets), we know that many customers will prefer to buy second hand rather than new, thus minimising the inpact on their cash flow.

If you have redundant stocks of steel pallets and stillages and you wish to dispose of them, please do get in touch. We will be up front with you. If we don’t think they can easily be sold, or they are too costly to transport or store, then scrap may be the option. But consider that as a last resort. Recover  what you can from your redundant assets and let us help you do that. Contact Avatan today if you wish to buy or sell second hand storage equipment. We would welcome your call.

 

 

 


Cage Pallet stocks immediately available

  October 21st, 2013    

With stock build ups well under way for Christmas, have you enough stillages to meet the seasonal peak.

Avatan Handling Equipment have stocks of Cage Pallets, Postracks and Hypacages, ready for immediate despatch.

Our standard size 1200mm x 800mm x 970mm high Euro style cage pallets are always held in stock and are generally immediately available for sale or hire. Available as a rigid cage pallet, Avatan stock Euro 90 cage pallets with either corrugated steel decking, or alternatively with the more conventional Euro style timber base. Fitted with a half drop gate on one long side, the Euro 90 cage will store and retain loose products, safely and securely stacked up to 5 units high with 1000kg in each stillage.

Also available in the Euro cage family are Euro 91 Collapsible Cage Pallets. Also readily available for sale and hire, these fold flat for empty storage, and serve to minimise return transport costs. Folded flat and re-assembled within moments the Euro 91 offers an extremely versatile storage medium.

In our range of folding cage pallets, we also carry stocks of 1200mm x 1000mm x 1000mm Hypacages. With all four sides hinged to the base, these fold flat in a matter of seconds, to take up only a fraction of the space of the assembled units. Again, this facilitates the moment of between 250 and 300 empty and folded units in a standard trailer. With 500kg and 1000kg rated units all in stock, we also offer a heavy duty Hypacage with fork guides further improving the safety of this product while being handled by forklift.

Although available readily in standard sizes, Hypacages and Euro Style cages may also be manufactured to order to suit your own specific requirements.

Call us old fashioned, but we like to hear from customers. We can help you best if we understand your needs. Give us a call and let us know how we can help you.


Stillages for Recycling Centres

  July 11th, 2013    

Down at the local authority recycling centres, it is always amazing to see the variety of materials being salvaged and their materials re-used. For bulk waste, cardboard, timber and garden waste, skips and large steel containers are routinely filled and ferried away. Meanwhile, greater emphasis is being placed on recycling electrical items including televisions and computer screens and these are often carefully loaded into steel stillages and then taken back to processing plants for dismantling recovering precious metals, plastic materials and glass. Avatan Handling Equipment produce such steel cage pallets and box pallets and will manufacture bespoke stillages in large or small quantities.

As recycling centres are often short of storage space, particularly noted recently by recycling services in the Swansea valley, Avatan were asked to design stillages that would easily fit into smaller Recycling Centres. The steel pallets needed to be easily serviced by small vehicles. Clearly these needed to be of robust design with the sides well protected from projectile computer screens. The base of the pallet also had to be well braced and to further protect it, a separate easily replaceable sacrificial timber deck was laid over the sheet steel base, further lengthening the durability of the stillage. The resulting 3 cubic metre design was stackable and was fitted with fork guides enabling safe and secure forklifting from all four sides. With the success of the South Wales stillages, Avatan is hopeful that many more Recycling Centres will adapt this method of storing and transporting their electrical waste.

If you have an unusual storage requirement, and need the problem to be considered with fresh minds, contact Avatan today. We would be glad to help.


Hygienic Aluminium and Stainless Steel Pallets

  June 4th, 2013    

High in the priorities of food and pharmaceutical industries is hygiene. Avatan Handling Equipment provide Aluminium and Stainless steel pallets manufactured to order to suit each customers specific needs, with continuous welds sealing tube ends ensuring pallets may be easily cleaned and kept in the highest possible hygienic standards.

Avatan offer a range of standard aluminium pallets, offered predominantly to meat processing and food manufacturing sites, where cleanliness is essential. Offered in any size, the most common sizes are Euro pallet size 800mm x 1200mm and UK pallet size 1200mm x 1000mm. Prior to offering pricing, Avatan’s experienced sales personnel will identify exactly how each customer wishes to use the pallets, e.g. whether they wish to store it in pallet racking, how much weight will be loaded onto each pallet, the size of the products being stored, etc., and then design an appropriate pallet to suit those needs.

Stainless steel pallets are also designed and manufactured to order by Avatan and are routinely supplied into the pharmaceutical industry. With their resistance to tarnishing, stainless steel pallets have also been supplied to shipping companies where a salty atmosphere would have damaged more economical aluminium pallets.

Aluminium and stainless steel pallets may be supplied with planked decks or with fully sheeted decking.

Although aluminium section is on the whole weaker than an equivalent stainless steel section, stackable pallets and stillages may be designed and manufactured in aluminium or stainless steel. Again, Avatan will use experience to identify each customers needs and design an appropriate aluminium or stainless steel pallet to suit the requirements.

Also within Avatan’s range are aluminium and stainless steel tables, workbenches, trolleys, shelving and bins.

Avatan looks forward to discussing YOUR requirements very soon.


Euro cage pallet family

  May 2nd, 2013    

Euro cage pallets, often referred to as Gitterboxes, are becoming more readily available through Avatans extensive storage facilities in and around London. Initially having introduced these to our product range only as a second hand item, Avatan now routinely carry stocks of new Euro 90 Rigid cage pallets, both with the European standard timber deck and also with the preferred more durable corrugated sheet steel deck.

Used and refurbished Euro cage pallets are still available but they have become harder to find, encouraging Avatan to invest in stocks of new equipment to meet customers immediate needs. The rigid Euro cages and collapsible folding cage pallets are fitted with the standard half drop gate offering excellent access to the cage contents while stacked. Fitted with strong mesh in all four sides, enabling customers to clearly see the contents of each cage, Gitterboxes may alternatively be manufactured with sheet steel sides. Although the collapsible Euro style cage pallets are only suitable for 900kg uniformly distributed load per pallet stackable four units high, approved Euro Gitterboxes are fitted with a plate acknowledging their suitability for 1500kg uniformly distributed load per pallet stackable four units high.

With sturdy corrugated steel bases, Euro cage pallets may be accessed by fork lift trucks or hand pallet trucks facing either the long or the short sides of each stillage giving maximum versatility in confined storage spaces.

Although only currently stocked in the full height 970mm high models, Avatan routinely supply several height options including 500mm, 570mm and 640mm.

Available with a half drop gate as standard, these gitterboxes are also available with full height gates or with no gate at all.

Euro cage pallets and Collapsible Euro cage Pallets also now form part of Avatans extensive rental fleet, available for long and short term hires in large and small quantities. With up to 270 of the Euro 91 folding cage pallets fitting in a 45′ trailer, these are very economical to transport.

With Avatan fast becoming a leading supplier of Euro Cage Pallets in the UK, we welcome enquiries from several sectors of British industry with particular success in the car parts and building sectors.

Avatan storage sites in Stevenage, Heathrow and Taplow have close links with M4, M25, M1 motorways and are easily accessible for those customers who wish to make their own collection arrangements.

With stocks only a phone call away, please give our sales team a call who can discuss advise you on your own very particular needs.


Low cost Hypacages in stock

  April 19th, 2012    

At Avatan, we have been stocking Hypacages for some years and have now extended our range including heavier duty more durable items to suit a wider use. To date, we have carried stock of light duty Hypacages, only suitable for 500kg stackable four units high. We have also routinely carried stock of Stackable Retention Units, available for sale and for hire. Both of these items are popular sellers and customers are reliant on these being available for a quick turn round rather than having to wait for purpose built more conventional stillages and steel pallets.

Accepting that 500kg loading is limiting for some uses, we have now developed a heavier duty range of collapsible Hypacages. Keeping to the standard British pallet size of 1200mm x 1000mm, our new items have an overall height of 1000mm and are suitable for 1000kg per cage stackable four units high. This doubles the capacity and opens up the possibilities for these very effective and simple cages. With all four sides folding flat onto the sturdy base, these may be transported empty for a fraction of the cost of assembled cages. They are similarly particularly suitable for seasonal storage requirements where the collapsed Hypacage may be stored in much less space.

This larger, heavy duty Hypacage is optionally available with fork loops, ensuring that the cage can be lifting safely and securely centred on the fork lift and taking away sideways slippage risks.

We are not suggesting that Hypacages are suitable for all eventualities and therefore offer an extensive range of more conventional stillages, cage pallets, box pallets and post pallets. Manufactured in our UK plant, rigid and collapsible stillages can be designed to suit your own very special needs.

Whatever your needs, sale or rental, do please give our sales team a call. We will be delighted to help.

Euro Cage Pallets now in stock

  April 11th, 2012    

Euro cage pallets are a regular item within our second hand stocks, SHC90 and SHC91 refer. This item is used extensively in Europe and commonly available here in the UK. We are pleased to announce that we also now supply Euro Cage Pallets as new equipment both in the rigid form, Euro 90 and the collapsible form Euro 91. Manufactured initially for the European railways, this cage will also fit snugly within 8′ wide trailers with up to 96 assembled units on super cube trailers. Indeed up to 288 folded collapsible Euro 91 cages can be transported in one load.

As a stock item, we anticipate this stillage becoming one of our regular rental products available for long or short term hire.

Each cage is suitable for a uniformly distributed load stackable four units high. The approved Euro cage is manufactured with a timber deck but we produce the collapsible cage with a stronger and more long lasting corrugated sheet steel deck. With specially designed feet, the stacking does not add to the overall dimensions of the pallet, sitting firmly and squarely on the top frame with all of the superimposed load weight transferring directly through the framework.

This cage may be manufactured in other sizes to order and may also be manufactured as a box pallet with sheet steel sides.

The sales team at Avatan will be delighted to provide more details upon request.
