Glaro’s new platform trucks are competitively priced workhorse machines with superior decorative features. They are ready to ship in one to three days.
Hauppauge, NY (PRWEB) December 26, 2012
This month, Glaro Inc., a leading American manufacturer, announces a completely new line of competitively priced platform trucks. Glaro Inc. carefully developed the new line of platform trucks over two years in order to make significant improvements over other products on the market today. According to executives, the latest iteration of Glaro Glider carts are tough, rugged, “workhorse” platform trucks designed to operate on the same high level as the well-known line of Glaro Glider bellman carts while outperforming the standard platform trucks currently on the market.
An interview with Executive Vice President Robert Betensky revealed the story behind the design, “platform trucks were traditionally made to perform one function: behind the scenes work. Bellman carts were primarily used as ‘front of the house’ carts with decorative features pleasing to guests. Our design builds the bridge between form and function, bringing the best of both worlds together into a workhorse cart that is attractive and can be used anywhere. It’s the first of its kind.”
In fact, many of the new features include innovations never before seen on platform trucks designed for use indoors and outdoors. All new platform carts come standard with heavy duty 1.5 inch diameter tubular handles of satin polished aluminum with an ergonomic design. These handles are embedded into the galvanized steel chassis for extra strength and rigidity. They are standard with high load capacity, 8 inch diameter, solid rubber, non-marking, ball bearing casters.
High Performance Six Wheel Option Provides “Pinpoint Maneuverability” Surpassing all other Platform Trucks
While four wheels are standard, Glaro’s six wheel platform carts (an option on all 40”, 48”, and 60” models) can accommodate a larger load capacity and still provide “pinpoint maneuverability,” allowing the operator to swivel in place, turn in tight places, and navigate on uneven surfaces are available. Only eight inch diameter high performance wheels are available because they are easier to move on any type of surface whether hard or carpeted.
The six wheel option allows platform trucks to be pushed or pulled from either end unlike four wheel trucks. The “push and pull” design comes with options for one or two ergonomic handles, providing unparalleled versatility of movement. There are even four different deck coverings to suit every application, including new surfaces that can be easily sanitized by healthcare institutions and are slip resistant. Wrap around bumpers create 360 degrees deck and wall protection.
During a product demo at the New York factory, Mr. Betensky explained, “our new cart is positioned to be a leader in its category for both performance and aesthetics. We have made sure that our platform carts are competitively priced and are able to ship out of our factory in approximately three business days. The response has been very positive since product launch.”
