SmartMover delivers efficiencies in Prison facility

A prison facility in England has made the move from transporting roll cages by hand to the power and safety of a SM100 electric tugger.

Staff at the facility were wasting valuable time and staff resources having to use several staff members to manually move roll cages laden with goods across large areas of the site and were also at risk of injuries associated with manual handling.

The solution was to use a SmartMover attached the roll cage, allowing goods to be moved easily and safely, even over sloping ground.

The SmartMover allows staff to move the roll cages more efficiently by connecting to the cages and providing the power to move the load across the facility making journey times quicker and only needing one person in charge.

Anthony Brown, of MasterMover, said: “Previously at the site, large A Frame roll cages were used to move items from ‘Goods In’ across the facility.

“These roll cages were moved by hand, but the arrival of the SM100 means one person can now do the job safely and have complete control over the maneuvers.”

With a small footprint and load weight capacity of 2,600 lbs, the SM100 powered tug is ideal for a wide-variety of uses, including multiple roll cages, linen cages and waste bins.
