Australian-owned and family-operated business Spacepark Vehicle Turntables Australia lists out five reasons why commercial and industrial
facilities should invest in truck turntables.
Space is a valuable and limited commodity in industrial and commercial segments.
Regardless of nature of use, it is important to ensure efficient and safe use
of the allocated space. Installing a truck turntable in the facility provides
an array of valuable advantages to the business.
Increase space efficiency at the
The installation of a truck turntable at the loading dock will increase
space efficiency, in some cases, even reducing the required space for the
application by as much as 50 percent. The unused space can be used to generate
more revenue for the business.
There is increased risk of an incident when trucks make difficult
manoeuvres in tight spaces, especially when there is heavy traffic and high pressure
to get in and out of the facility. In the event of an accident, the building or
property can get severely damaged, or a member of the staff can get seriously
injured. A truck turntable will help avoid these dangerous situations and
greatly lower the risk of an accident.
Improve site flexibility
It may be challenging for developers to find the right spot for a
loading dock. In the absence of a truck turntable, there are many restrictions
for a site to work effectively including problematic traffic access and small
open areas. A truck turntable allows for access to these otherwise impossible
sites by improving the flow of traffic at the facility.
Many loading and unloading docks may require costly structural layouts to
accommodate specific space and job requirements. When included in the design
stage, truck turntables often eliminate the need for expensive transfer beams
and other materials, decreasing construction costs by keeping the dock area
within the standard parameters. The reduction in construction cost alone may
completely cover the installation of a new truck turntable.
Achieve greater operational
In addition to delivering space efficiency, truck turntables can help a
commercial or industrial facility save significant loading and unloading time
by improving traffic flow at the facility. Truck turntables also increase dock
capacity by allowing larger trucks to navigate smaller spaces, decrease
requirements for traffic management staff, and lower insurance premiums through
fewer damage claims.
Manufactured from high-quality, Australian-made materials based on many
years of detailed research and development, Spacepark’s truck turntables can withstand
constant traffic from vehicles weighing up to 30 tonnes. Spacepark also offers
customisation of truck turntables to suit almost any truck size, vehicle
weight, space requirement, or aesthetic finish.
Spacepark has been meeting the needs of its customers in the parking solutions
industry for over 30 years.
