HOW DO THEY WORK?
Astron’s recycled slip sheets are a load-base alternative to wooden and plastic pallets. Slip sheets are used in conjunction with a push-pull unit. This unit can be easily retrofitted to a standard forklift within minutes.
Product is stacked on the slip sheets exactly as on pallets. To on-load, the push-pull unit grips/clamps the edge of the loaded sheet and drags it onto a metal plate fixed to the fork-lift.
The push-pull unit has very flat ground level forks that are designed to go under the load. To off-load, the unit gently pushes the sheet and product, while the forklift backs away. This enables the loaded slip sheet to slide off in place.
