    ​Low-speed fan

    The Powerfoil X2.0 large-diameter, low-speed fan creates a cooling effect of air movement that makes workers feel 10 degrees cooler, helping improve energy efficiency. It also reduces heat bills, removes slippery condensation from floors, increases the effectiveness of ventilation systems and reduces noise in warehouses. In the winter, the fan can be slowed to push heat off the ceiling.

    ​Floor mat

    The PIG Grippy Mat is an absorbent mat with a one-of-a-kind adhesive bottom. It soaks up leaks, drips and overspray without bunching, curling or sliding. It also peels away easily without leaving residue. The mat absorbs oils, coolants, solvents and water. A poly backing creates an additional barrier to prevent absorbed liquids from soaking through to the floor.

    The RHR-4000 Dok-Lok vehicle restraint helps prevent all types of trailer separation incidents, including early departure, landing gear collapse, trailer creep, pop-up, upending and tipovers. Its “shadow hook” adds an additional layer of safety to secure container chassis or rear-impact guards with obstructions. Dok-Lok rotating hook restraints are designed for impact and to withstand today’s loading dock environment.
