ATEX Rated Zoned Drum Trolley

The company’s flagship unit the DTC01 Universal Drum Trolley won STS the Tomorrow’s World Inventors of the Year award followed by the Product Innovation Award at the Safety Expo 2001.

It has become the industry standard for all companies wishing to allow any operator, no matter how strong, to move drums of up to 300kg with only 20kg of effort whilst complying with Manual Handling Regulations.

Constructed in full stainless steel the DTC01 Drum Trolley is suitable for drum and barrel handling from 50 litres (10 gallon) to 200 litres (45 gallon).
The drum trolley is fitted with an adjustable catch allowing it to suit different drums and barrels such as mausers, XL ring, plastic and open top steel.

The DTC01 Drum Trolleys are compatible with loading drums onto the STS Rollover and Dispensing Cradles.
The DCR01 Dispensing Cradle is ideal for decanting 200 litre drums, designed with braked castors to prevent the cradle from tipping.
The DCR02 Rollover Cradle is designed to assist operators to place drums in a horizontal rack by allowing operators to rotate 200 litre drums and barrels into the horizontal with a safe and easy manoeuvre.
