A relocatable truck turntable has recently been installed and commissioned by Australian Turntable Co. (ATC) for a Leighton project in Eagle Street, Brisbane.
The first new addition to the truck turntable range, the relocatable truck turntable is ideal for temporary requirements and can be used in existing developments or loading dock situations.
The relocatable truck turntable has a low height of 250mm and can be fitted with up to 360 degrees of access ramp to ensure a safe and smooth transition for vehicles.
Leighton’s contacted ATC with a logistical problem whereby a truck turntable was the only solution. They had to accommodate over 80 concrete truck deliveries a day on top of an already busy 50 deliveries per day inner city loading dock schedule. Height restrictions and the loading dock being located on a suspended slab gave ATC’s design and engineering teams cause to be creative.
The benefit of the relocatable truck turntable for Leighton’s included;
- Increasing safety within loading dock
- Increasing safety for the public with no trucks reversing onto site
- Reducing delivery time frames
- Reducing traffic flow interruptions
- Reducing the need for traffic management staff
Construction and mine companies are some of the industries that have recognised the safety and logistical solutions and financial benefits provided by relocatable truck turntables.
The relocatable truck turntable range further displays ATC’s commitment to innovation which has seen their car turntables and truck turntables recognised as being popular throughout the industry.
