Safety first for drivers
An innovative method to accelerate the speed of unloading trucks brings safety benefits.
Boral Logistics has introduced specialised technology to reduce the possibility of tipper trucks falling over during unloading.
Stability is compromised the higher a tipper bin is elevated at an angle to discharge a load, increasing the likelihood of an accident such as the bin falling sideways.
To reduce the risk of accident and increase safety for our drivers, we have started fitting tipper bins with “Okulside” brand liners – a 12-millimetre-thick polyethylene liner to provide a slippery base inside the bin.
The liners allow products to discharge easily at a lower angle such as wet sand, road base and single-sized aggregate that can clump together, large rocks and uneven loads.
The liner is also hard wearing and will protect the floors of the aluminium bins from high rates of wear.
