TruckFlex Charge Chute: 90% reduction in working at height

“We were constantly buying new rubber charge chutes,which was expensive, but the hidden cost, involved with changing chutes and all of the paperwork,was far higher. TruckFlex has saved us thousands of pounds and is safer into the bargain.”               Area Maintenance Engineer

The Challenge:

Rubber truckmixer charge chutes on a busy readymixed concrete plant required constant replacement causing too much downtime. Abrasive aggregate plus tearing caused by variable height trucks took their toll. Compliance with working at height regulations lead to expensive hire charges and time consuming administration when changing chutes.
