Well, multi-functionality is becoming more and more of a demand! And here’s the thing… the OMNI-TUFF International Cage has got the features to make it fit the bill.
While a lot of time is given to the storage features of the cage, including aesthetics cage accessibility and product security, OMNI-TUFF invests a huge amount of time on the underside functionality of our RETAIN range. The International Cage is no exception!
Pallet Racking Compatibility
As is the focus of all of OMNI-TUFF’s range of RETAIN, the International Cage is very definitely Australian Standard Pallet Racking compatible, giving operators that peace of mind that even if a forklift does bump a cage in the pallet racking, the cage’s lock-in safety features ensure that it won’t just slip off the racking beams and cause injury.
Shipping Container Functionality
You often hear cages might be either pallet racking compatible OR shipping container friendly; as a rule, you get one or the other … not both! But here’s the thing! With careful balancing, OMNI-TUFF has managed to achieve both. The International Cage is entirely pallet racking compatible, but by reducing the length and width fractionally, you can easily fit two abreast in a shipping container… WOW! Anyone that has the challenge of loading a shipping container with conventional Australian pallets will know what a hassle this can be.
Forklift safety under-rails / anti-tilt safety feature
In the industrial sector where the International Cage has proved so popular, there can often be heavy loads, but at the same time often not an even distribution of weight. This is where the Safety Under-rails are invaluable. If there is any possibility of the cage capsizing while being transported by a forklift, the under-rails hold the cage in place until the cage can be put down on firm ground again and the load adjusted to be more evenly distributed.
Collapsible = functional
The OMNI-TUFF International Cage is a fully collapsible unit. In a matter of seconds, an operator can assemble or disassemble it single-handedly. No tools are required for this process, which means that even if you are in a remote area, the International Cage is still very functional. And because the disassembly is so quick, end-users can maximise the warehouse space by disassembling and stacking these bins up to seven high while not in use. Based on the foot and post design, you can stack the International Cage safely and efficiently.
The OMNI-TUFF International Cage is hot-dip galvanised, thus giving you a ruggedised unit for those tough environments. The mesh cage design with a sold steel floor all adds to the massive duty capabilities of the International Cage.
Loading and unloading
The International Cage has front and rear gates, so accessibility is assured and multi-functional. Whether you choose to remove one or both gates entirely of simply fold one of the gates down, loading and unloading of cages is a very user-friendly operation.
For jobs requiring higher levels of security, the International Cage has got the option to come with a lockable lid, which means that you can use the International Cage for secure drop shipments around the site at specific locations, using a master-key system.
Optional: The ID plate located on the front and back gates facilitated clear demarcation and identification of your gear.
The International Cage sounds so good, but what if my gear is bigger than standard pallet size? No problem! The double width International Cage is the solution. Still, pallet racking compatible and complete with forklift safety under-rails, the double width International Cage is a force to be reckoned with. And as with its little brother, the double width fits easily within the width of a shipping container.
Another concept for long components that is user-friendly is to remove the front and back gates of the single International Cage, turn the 4-way entry cage 90 degrees and stack the long lengths out each end of the cage.
