Suggestions on handling euro sized sheets3/13
Many of these new textured melamine products on the market today measure 7'x9'. We are a 6000sf shop with no forklift or room to store one.
We have had one of these for a long time over 10 years. It works wonderful. It will flip flat and raise to about 36". It will hold 10 sheets of 3/4" standing up. I don't see a reason to buy anything bigger than the 4' or maybe the 5'. It won't hurt for the panel to hang off some.
Used to work in Germany years ago. Its very common to see:
If you have a 6000SF shop and the machinery to cut panels you can't afford not to have a fork lift. Put you sheets on a scissors lift. I have one with wheels and a handle, the others we move with a pallet jack.
When you talk large panels and have a space issue, a Vertical Saw with vertical panel material handling like the shopcart is definitely the way to go.
Our shop is 3600 sqft and couldn’t live without the forklift, we bought a 6’ extension for these panels although I try to stay away from them, I bought my forklift used 14 years ago fir 1800.00 and have not put more than 500.00 pieces not it for standard maintenance since then. We unload shipments in minutes and use it to stack our panels in racking to save space,
This is the size of a sea can for maximum shipping
