Product Protector, LLC continues their quest to protect the world at PROMAT 2013 Chicago, IL

Thursday, March 7, 2013

Product Protector has come a long way since their debut last year at MODEX 2012. With a successful experience in hand in Atlanta, the team was excited and had high expectations for PROMAT 2013. Those expectations were not only met but easily surpassed. "PROMAT was the perfect way for Product Protector to start the new year", says VP Jeff Calavan. Team Product Protector would like to thank all those who came by the booth to witness firsthand how the Product Protector can give them a competitive edge in an already competitive marketplace", says Tony Butterfield Sales representative for Product Protector.

For those that did not make it - the Product Protector is a revolutionary forklift attachment that solves the product and pallet damage problem. It does this by changing how the forklift comes into contact with the pallet and redistributing the impact to the strongest parts of a pallet.

Not only does the Product Protector virtually eliminate pallet and product damage, but it also increases the margin of safety for the forklift drivers and other employees working around the forklifts. Any company that relies heavily on forklifts can benefit from the Product Protector.

There are two basic models of the Product Protector: the Single and the Single-Double. Both models also come in a Tabbed version, specifically engineered to protect products that overhang the pallet. The Single Product Protector features a patented breakaway system so that it will never get caught in docks or racking systems. Each Product Protector is powder coated allowing for outdoor use and enabling them to withstand the freezing temperatures of cold storage operations.

A forklift operating without the Product Protector always hits the lead board of the pallet with the backs of the forks causing pallet damage. Often this results in a broken lead board as well as damaged product. With the Product Protector, the impact is shifted to the three blocks or stringer, which are a pallet's strongest points. This reduces pallet damage and wood debris, which also promotes a cleaner work environment. By hitting the stringers and blocks, the Product Protector stabilizes the load, allowing forklift drivers to work quickly and safely. If you missed PROMAT 2013 you can always catch up with the team at PMA 2013 in New Orleans.
