Forklift goods cages are cages made specifically for moving goods or objects around for just about any application. It is important to note that these forklift cages are NOT for moving people. There are forklift safety man cages designed specifically for that and that conform to HSE regulations - These do not.
These goods cages are versatile - you may need to unload a lorry or container, you may need to lift items up and down from a mezzanine floor, or maybe move things around a farm or festival using a telehandler. These goods cages can be used for anything (except people!) and made to a design and configuration to suit your goods needs.
Custom Designed Goods Cages
These forklift goods cages are custom made to your requirements. That means you need a good idea of what you need. Below are some example pictures of forklift goods cages we have previously made to give you ideas.
We need to know some basic cage dimensions - width x depth x height
What are the cage sides infilled with, a horizontal mid height bar or mesh? Mesh is more expensive, but can contain smaller items.
Do you need a front gate on the goods cage? Loose items may need a cage gate but palletised may not. You will need to consider space when swinging a gate open.
A folding bridge flap to push a pallet truck over?
Cage finish? Painted or galvanized
Load capacity? How much or what are you lifting in this forklift goods cage
Basic Forklift Goods Cage
This forklift goods cage has a simple open framework perimeter and a 3mm chequerplate deck. There is a folding loading flap on the goods cage.
Mesh Forklift Goods Cage with front Gate
This forklift goods cage has a 50x50x3mm mesh infilled side framework. The cage is fitted with a full width safety gate with a simple swing catch, note the space needed to open the cage gate.
This cage is also relatively large, with a width of 2.5m. Note that on wider forklift cages, the load will need to be centrally placed
Mesh Forklift Goods Cage Galvanized
This forklift goods cage has again 50x50x3mm mesh infilled cage sides but the cage has been hot dipped galvanized. Galvanizing is a relatively expensive process, but does mean the forklift cage is totally weather-proof for 20 to 30 years.
The cage is again fitted with a full width safety gate with a swing catch,
Mesh Forklift Goods Open Chained Front
This forklift goods cage has again 50x50x3mm mesh infilled cage sides but the cage does not have a front gate but 2 chains across instead. An opening gate is an obvious option, but it doesn need a lot of room around the cage to open and close it.
