More information about Board Trolleys

Board Trolleys are specialised equipment designed to transport boards, panels, and other flat sheets of material in an upright position. They are the go-to solution for transporting materials such as plasterboard, plywood, MDF, and other large, flat sheets. 

Available in various sizes and equipped with casters or wheels tailored to the application's specific needs, Board Trolleys are a crucial piece of equipment in any warehouse, manufacturing facility, or hardware store that handles large, flat sheets of material or sells fence panels and sheet materials.

The Benefits of Using a Board Trolley

Board Trolleys are a common sight in construction sites, joinery shops, builders’ merchants, and engineering workshops due to the multitude of benefits they offer:

  1. Improved Productivity: Board Trolleys enable quick and efficient movement of panels and other large sheet materials, enhancing productivity.
  2. Cost-Effective: They ensure the boards or panels reach their destination undamaged, eliminating the cost of replacements due to dents or chipped corners.
  3. Health and Safety: Board Trolleys allow for the safe movement of heavy, awkward boards, minimising the risk of accidents and long-term injuries from manual handling. The upright stacking of boards also reduces repetitive bending and the risk of trapped fingers.

Popular Applications for Board Trolleys

Board Trolleys have a wide range of applications across various industries. They are particularly popular in the construction industry, where builders use them to transport large quantities of plasterboard, plywood, and other flat materials across construction sites. The ability to move these materials quickly and safely can significantly improve the efficiency of a construction project.

DIY stores also frequently use Board Trolleys. These stores often need to move large, flat materials like fence panels and sheet materials around their premises. A Board Trolley allows them to do this easily and safely, reducing the risk of damage to the materials and potential injuries to staff.

Decorators and other professionals who work with large, flat materials also find Board Trolleys invaluable. For example, decorators often need to transport large sheets of plasterboard when renovating a space. A Board Trolley allows them to move these materials quickly, safely, and without damaging them, making the renovation process smoother and more efficient.

In summary, Board Trolleys are a versatile tool that can significantly improve efficiency and safety in any industry that needs to transport large, flat materials. Whether you're a builder, run a DIY store, or are a decorator, a Board Trolley could be a valuable addition to your equipment.

What to Look For When Purchasing a Board Trolley

When purchasing a Board Trolley, there are many aspects you should consider, including;

  2. Manoeuvrability: Look for a trolley that's easy to manoeuvre, especially if moving materials through tight spaces.
  3. Durability: The trolley should be robust and durable, capable of withstanding heavy use.
  4. Safety Features: Safety is paramount. Look for safety features, such as secure loading mechanisms and quality brakes.
