5 Applications - 5 Proven Products

In many companies, hazardous substances are stored in drums. However, the need for safe and ergonomic transport is underestimated. Incorrect handling can lead to serious environmental and health hazards - in the uncontrolled release of hazardous substances. In addition, employees are also at risk by manually transporting, lifting or holding drums. Suitable work equipment reduces the risks of in-house drum handling to a minimum. We introduce you to essential products for different application situations.
