ATEX Drum Rotator with Loadcells - Lifts, Tips and Weighs in Hazardous Areas

We are experts in the design and manufacture of ergonomic, high quality manual handling equipment. All products are manufactured in the UK enabling us to design and build the right piece of equipment that fulfils your specification.

We come from a background of having to handle drums ourselves so we know what problems operators have. Most companies selling drum handling equipment do not design or build it but buy in cheap products built to old fashion designs. Consequently these products will not enable you as an employer to comply with Manual Handling Regulations. Here at STS our units are thoroughly tested to meet these standards.

STS first broke into the industry in 1999 with flagship unit the DTC01 Universal Drum Trolley. An award winning patented design recognised for its reduction of back injury in the workplace. This has now become the industry standard for all companies wishing to move drums whilst complying with regulations and keeping their operators safe.

We supply customers from a range of industries such as food, chemical and pharmaceutical areas. We have built up a reputation throughout these industries for developing the highest quality equipment available, a feat reflected in our impressive client portfolio.

STS has gone on to develop an extensive range of products in response to the demand from our customers to be able to lift, tip and handle drums safely. These solutions range from radio-controlled drum tippers for Nirex waste and de-palletisers for offshore industries, to ATEX drum lifters for Zone 1 areas and stainless GMP units for pharmaceutical clean rooms.
