Forklift roll prongs provide operators with an efficient method of increasing the load capacity of their forklift by providing a long pylon (or “prong”) on which rolled materials such as fabric, cable, carpet, and coil products can loop around, allowing for safe and easy transportation.
For simple and safe lifting, handling and transporting of rolled products, forklift roll prongs offer the perfect solution, and come fully certified to give operators peace of mind.
Roll prongs are simple to use, replacing the traditional fork tines to provide a larger load centre, and come in two variants – slip-on roll prongs, and carriage mounted roll prongs.
Here is a quick overview of both roll prong types:
Very quick and easy to mount on forklifts, slip-on roll prongs are a specialist type of forklift attachments designed to quickly move rolled products, such as fabric carpet cable and coil products, around a facility or work site.
Large forklifts are recommended, as the length of the prong extends the horizontal load centre a lot, and a larger forklift provides greater stability and movement dynamics in relation to its centre of gravity.
Slip on roll prong attachments fit onto most standard fork tines, requiring only the connection of the included safety chain to prevent unintentional disengagement. Slip on roll prongs are manufactured from high tensile steel, feature a galvanised finish, and come with an instruction manual and manufacturer certificate to AS 2359.1 Standards.
Carriage mounted forklift roll prongs are suitable for cumbersome and weighty rolled materials, such as carpet, vinyl, fabric, and heavy-duty cable.
Carriage mounted roll prongs are available for Class II, III and IV forklift carriages, along with those that are pin mounted. All carriage mounted roll prong units are fitted with “quick release” mounting locks, providing a safe and easy connection to the forklift carriage, which, in turn, saves setup time and eliminates the need for any tools.
Carriage mounted roll prongs are made from high tensile steel, feature an enamel paint finish, and come with an instruction manual and manufacturer certificate to AS 2359.1 Standards.
