Aluminum bushel basket carts are now manufactured in the USA by Tecni‐Quip Carts. Aluminum carts have long been the standard in European laundries and now made their mark in the United States. There are numerous advantages to an aluminum basket cart beyond their stylish modern appeal. The most popular reasons to invest in an aluminum basket cart are the ease of manufacturing custom sizes, the ergonomic, light‐weight superiority of aluminum, natural fire‐retardant properties, and ease of cleaning.
Custom cart sizes are extremely useful and appealing when space is limited in laundry settings. Aluminum basket carts can be made to fit into tight spaces or under large machinery. Other custom size applications can be found in hotel or healthcare environments where space is a premium.
Reducing the overall weight of basket carts will ensure staff’s safety. Aluminum is light and easy to push and maneuver. Additionally, aluminum carts can be manufactured at natural pushing heights for employees to prevent bending over while pushing which can contribute to prolonged back injuries.
Aluminum material is naturally fire‐retardant with a high melting point and will not contribute to fires that occasionally occur in laundry environments.
Although the initial purchase price of aluminum basket carts may be slightly higher than other material, metal carts have an extended life cycle. Aluminum may also be recycled for a value at the end of its life. This will help offset the initial purchase price.
All aluminum used by Tecni‐Quip is composed of 30% post‐consumer aluminum. Every Tecni-Quip basket cart is equipped with superior plate type casters and quiet wheels with precision sealed ball bearing to increase ease of maneuvering. Other upgrades are available included perimeter bumpers, spring platform bottoms, external push hands and more. Call today to receive more information or pricing.
