Choosing Forklift Tipping Skips
At direct2u we have an wide range of CE marked tipping skips, ideal for effectively managing material handling. In fast paced environments such as warehouse and factories, it's vital that systems and equipment are in place for the collection and movement of items. Skips are ideal for collecting waste materials such as metal, cardboard and plastics. Our tipping bins can provide a durable recycling system that can help streamline your waste management.
Over time waste accumulates and moving skips can be a daunting task. Most of our range include forklift truck sleeves allowing quick and secure movements to transport and empty skips. There are a few different emptying mechanisms for skips including manual and auto tipping skips.
Manual tipping simply means that the skip is operated using a manual handle. Automatic tipping uses different release points to activate the mechanism. This unique feature allows the tipping skip to automatically empty whilst the forklift operator remains seated. Not only does this save time, it also helps improve safety and reduce workplace accidents!
Understanding which of our skips suits your needs is an absolute essential before buying. We're here to help you figure out which forklift tipping skip ticks all of your boxes.
Manual handling simply means that you decide when the skip empties using a manual release handle. Releasing the handle activates the mechanism and will roll the skip forward to empty any waste. This simple yet effective system allows for easy waste management. These skips are manufactured with high quality mild steel to ensure they are robust and durable, ready to handle daily use.
As mentioned previously, our range of automatic forklift skips are ideal for streamlining your recycling process. Due to their ability to tip without a manual release handle, you might known them as as self-tipping skips. Using different release points, located on the front or bottom of the skip, these are tipped without any need for the operator to leave the chair of their forklift. This allows for a better work flow and improves health and safety when tipping.
As you can see, forklift skips are essentials in industrial environments for material handling and waste management. It's important to remember that they are incredibly useful for helping recycling. On average the UK commercial and trade industries generated 40 million tonnes of waste, together we can help reduce and recycling our waste.
Tipping skips such as our Twin & Triple Skips can be used to separate different materials, E.g. Plastic, Cardboard, Metal. You can then take these materials and place them into recycling banks with ease as each section tips independently of the others. Our Stacking Skips are also a great solution for this. Available in a range of colours, they are easy to colour code and identify for specific uses. This means you can get a skip for cardboard, one for glass, another for general waste and so on.
