What Makes Up An A-frame Glass Stillage?
Of course, there are many different variations available of a-frame glass stillages, however, typically, they will be made up of;
The mainframe is the structure that provides the overall foundation of the stillage.
Fork guides are the part of the stillage that allow forklift operatives to easily lift the frame with a stacker truck. These guides may not add any additional structural strength, but they are essential if you are looking to lift the frame with a forklift as they ensure that the load is lifted in a safe and balanced way.
A baseboard is essentially the point of contact between the glass/window and the frame.
Lashing points allow the glass to be secured, either with webbing or another type of sling.
Lifting eyes are certified points where a stillage can be attached to a lifting device.
The rear boards of an a-frame glass stillage will help protect the glass being transported from being damaged.
These are one of the most important structural parts of an a-frame stillage. They transfer the lifting force to the heavy-duty base and they also allow the 5-6 degrees incline.
The Uses of an A-Frame Glass Stillage
An A-frame glass stillage is primarily used for supporting sheets of glass for safe transportation. It will be used to bear weight in a safe way, by strapping the sheets inwardly leading, so there is less chance that it will crack or break during transportation.
Often, A-frame glass stillages can be used very successfully throughout the window industry, making loading and unloading a vehicle much easier.
How Durable is an A-Frame Glass Stillage?
As the a-frame glass stillages, we produce here at Range Storage Equipment are made from steel and have either plywood, plastic, rubber or foam bases, they are incredibly durable. They’re built to last, so after you make your initial investment, you’ll find that they are incredibly strong and even better, reusable. A steel a-frame stillage will provide you with secure protection over the glass you are transporting countless of times.
